CityLife

Saison 12

1. West Island Downtown

TV BROADCAST:
Monday at 6:30 p.m. and 10:30 p.m.

Even before the pandemic, downtown Montreal had its fair share of problems. That included long commutes for people coming from the suburbs and a shortage of parking spots for those who drove into town. Now it could be facing some new competition... A new "mini-downtown" in Pointe-Claire. A developer wants to extend Fairview Pointe-Claire, including thousands of condos, a hotel and an open-air plaza. We look at the pros and cons of the project.

Guest(s) : Miguel Escobar, President, Future Cities Paul Gott, Journalism Professor Robert Frank, Journalist?
