    PPU du Quartier des gares

    They expanded that side walk on the east side by about double and eliminated the one on the west side completely. Lucien-L'Allier will have an entirely different look when the work is finished.
  2. Not impossible. They only have one left and it's over 25 years old.
  3. This summer, it has been one daily 747 (capacity 498). Having one 787-8 and one 787-9 (combined capacity of roughly 580) represents an increase in capacity, but a relatively small one.

    Nouveau Pont Champlain

    La CSST a des règles très strictes pour le travail en chaleur extrême et je crois qu’hier on a dépassé par beaucoup les seuils.
  5. I agree and I genuinely wish it were the case, but education is a matter of provincial jurisdiction only. It would be nice to see a greater effort from the ROC provinces, but there isn't a ton the Federal government can do on the subject. We wouldn't want other provinces telling us how to manage our education system, especially on language, so I imagine they feel the same way. It is nonetheless nice to see that demand is so high in Ontario by parents for French-imersion for their children (per the TorStar article).
  6. This map is patently intellectually dishonest. The terminus for the blue line extension will be at Galeries d'Anjou (SOUTH) of highway 40. This one shows it at least 2 km north of that, which makes the blue line look like a diagonal line east of Saint-Michel, which it will not be. It appears to be drawn this way to draw people away from the fact that the CAQ would refuse funding for the pink line, and continue to leave north-east Montreal poorly served by public transit.
  7. May YUL traffic stats are up: https://www.admtl.com/sites/default/files/2018/ADM_Statsdet_2018_EN.pdf 7.7% increase overall (4.4% domestic, 9.0% international, 11.7% transborder) YTD, we are at a 6.2% overall increase over 2017.

    Course de Formule E à Montréal

    The problem is that at the news conference announcing the cancelling of the race (which let's be honest, never should have been held in the streets of MTL in the first place), her answer to how much the termination penalty provided for in the contract would be, she answered she didn't know. She may have made the right decision regardless of cost, but that is absolutely amateur hour, and tells me that it probably was taken just as quickly.

    Victoria sur le Parc - 56 étages

    The wood structure is coated with a fire retardant material, and what I've been told is that the outside edges of the wood burns, but chars before the first can spread to the inner parts of the wood. It's the same thinking that went into the Centre Vidéotron. I'm no scientist and have no way to verify the information, but I hear that the lab testing has been pretty convincing.

    Griffintown et ses projets - Discussion générale

    All of those are great ideas (especially the north-south lines which are seriously lacking). Putting one on René-Lévesque (as also provided for above) would be a disaster which doesn't do any favours to anyone (least of all, cyclists).

    Griffintown et ses projets - Discussion générale

    Great find! Quelle est la distinction entre une "bande cyclable" et une "piste cyclable sur rue". Est-ce que la "piste cyclable sur rue" est protégée?

    AirBaltic orders 60 CS300’s

    Even more impressive, the AirBaltic fleet will be entirely made up of CSeries aircraft as of 2022, as it is using them to replace their aging 737s as well as their Q400s.
