Ville-Marie to stay open during COP15

Ensemble’s Aref Salem tried to stir up trouble with a claim that the Ville‑Marie tunnel would be closed for security reasons during COP15, from December 7-19. The mayor has countered that the tunnel, which runs directly under the Palais des congrès, would remain open. Various police and security people questioned in the article also confirm they have no plans to close the tunnel.

…Which does make me wonder, didn’t anyone consider, when putting the Palais right there, that having a traffic tunnel right under it might some day pose a security risk?
