New Berri substation, a hot potato

Tuesday, a Hydro-Quebec honcho writes in Le Devoir to defend the electrical substation planned on the same block as the Grande bibliothèque. She makes a good case for the need to strengthen the grid in the area but her promises to maintain a certain aesthetic quality have to be taken with a grain of salt.

The Journal reports on a push by a group from the cultural community to stop the project. None of them addresses the technical issues that are the main topic of the Le Devoir piece.
