Manuel Johnson and some of his neighbours have organized a citizen’s community group called CARRS (Comité d’action des rivérain(e)s de la rue St-Antoine). The major issue at stake is the fast and dangerous car traffic on St-Antoine that goes by Ludger Duvernay Elementary school.

There is going to be a walk down St-Antoine on October 15th at 16h30 from Ludger Duvernay school to a public space near the Home Depot. Representatives from all three municipal parties will be there to see how unsafe St-Antoine at rush hour. For more info visit Johnson’s blog, St-Henri Chronicles.

This video is by filmmaker Karen Vanderborght. It is about the proposed MTQ projection to demolish the Turcot interchange. Part of the plan is to demolish the building at 780 St-Remi and most of the housing on the north side of Cazelais Street, in the Tanneries Village part of St-Henri…more than 200 housing units.
