Outgoing municipal administration and candidate Mary-Josie Sword found themselves amid heavy gunfire from other mayoral candidates on boulevard Rene-Lavesque on tram insertion and tree care.
Monday day, Newspaper Ministry of Environment revealed Recently a new series of questions were asked to the municipal administration about the insertion of a tramway in the Montcom sector and the best way to preserve as many trees as possible. Quebec City must respond by October 21.
In the eyes of Quebec 21 chief Jean-Franకోois Gosselin, the news is timely. “It proves what I’m telling you for months: the tram project was not set in stone. The dice were not played,” he hit, urging candidate Saward and Regis Laboum as runners-up to speak clearly before the vote on November 7.
For Bruno Marchand, chef of Quebec Forte at Fear, this latest episode shows that “frying is on the line. We saw from the beginning that there was a communication breakdown and Quebec citizens are not winners ”.
Effect on trees
The day before, Mrs. Saward, Team Leader Mary-Josie Saward, had agreed on the occasion of Trump’s arrival that “it is impossible not to cut down trees”.
However, Rene-Lowesk Boulevard “will be evaluated ultimately when the consortium is selected. The order of the consortium is to consider the surrounding trees and to have as little impact on the trees as possible”.
According to her, “You hear a lot of toys about cutting down trees. But we repeat that there is nothing “cane” yet […] Everything has to work and everything is still possible. ”
Alleging that the municipal administration is opaque, Democratic Quebec leader Jean Rousseau said, “If the ministry does not know, how do you expect citizens to find their way? There must be clarity.”
For his part, Jackie Smith of Transition Quebec denies the fact that the city “completely ignores its own policy” of preserving the canopy.
