    Nouvelle Tour Banque (Big 5) - ?? étages

    Tangerine fait partie de Scotia depuis des années. À leur début au Canada il était une filiale de ING Bank (Pays-Bas). Donc, en terme de grandeur, leur actifs sont comptabilisés avec Scotia. https://www.tangerine.ca/fr/faq/about-us/index.html Quelle est la nature de la relation entre Tangerine et la Banque Scotia au Canada ? Le 15 novembre 2012, la Banque Scotia (également connue sous le nom de la Banque de la Nouvelle- Écosse) a acquis la Banque ING DIRECT du Groupe ING, son ancienne société mère. Voici un peu plus d’information au sujet de cette nouvelle relation : Commençons par définir qui est Tangerine. Tangerine est le nom opérationnel de la Banque Tangerine, une banque à charte régie par le Bureau du surintendant des institutions financières (BSIF). Nous sommes membres de la Société d’assurance-dépôts du Canada (SADC). Depuis 1997, Tangerine aide les Canadiens à vivre mieux en leur proposant une façon différente d’effectuer leurs opérations bancaires, une façon qui donne la plus grande valeur possible à leur argent durement gagné. Nous le faisons en offrant un excellent service et des produits simples, transparents et novateurs. Puisque Tangerine et ses filiales sont désormais la propriété exclusive de la Banque de Nouvelle-Écosse, nous ne sommes plus affiliés à ING Groep N.V. (le nom légal du Groupe ING). Nous sommes une filiale indépendante de la Banque Scotia, mais nos valeurs et notre engagement à l’égard des Canadiens demeurent les mêmes. Votre expérience avec Tangerine demeure distincte et indépendante de la Banque Scotia, puisque les deux banques opèrent séparément.

    BMO or RBC. TD, Scotia and CIBC are not as strong in the Quebec market. BMO has old offices on St-Jacques (but very historical) and RBC is firmly installed at PVM.

    They should survey the retailers, bars and restaurants on King. Or better yet, compare sales period-over-period for all commercial locations on the street (while isolating other factors that influence sales - good luck). Simply pointing to percentages of how much a person visits a shop (self-reported no less) doesn't yield any concrete data upon which to make real economic decisions. As someone who spends too much time in Toronto, your view on this subject depends on where you live. As an urban city-dweller, you love it: Fast street car commute, much safer, etc. As a suburban car driver, you hate it and likely never go to King anymore. In my opinion, taking the street car is now super easy and efficient. But the street itself feels a little "ghost-townish" without vehicle traffic. Especially during rush hour and weekends. And all the cars that used to transit via King are now just using other East-West arteries, clogging them even more.

    Royalmount "Quinze40"

    This article might be in the wrong thread. If so, apologies in advance but it tries to explain support of and opposition to Royalmount and other projects. https://montrealgazette.com/opinion/columnists/allison-hanes-navigating-montreals-two-new-solitudes I would argue that this trend can be seen in other cities and regions as well. Allison Hanes: Navigating Montreal's two new solitudes In his classic 1945 novel, Hugh McLennan's Two Solitudes were linguistic. The new defining gulf is between urban Montreal and the suburbs. ALLISON HANES, MONTREAL GAZETTE Updated: November 29, 2018 Perhaps nothing illustrates the emergence of two new solitudes in Montreal like the recent kerfuffle over the new Pierrefonds Library. For local residents and Pierrefonds-Roxboro Mayor Jim Beis, the inclusion of a drive-thru book drop-off in the modern $24.4-million facility slated to open next spring is a time-saving convenience for families on the go. To Christine Gosselin, the Montreal executive committee member in charge of culture, the drive-thru is “an aberration,” as she told Radio-Canada, a harbinger of everything wrong with our car-centric, fossil-fuel-guzzling, increasingly sedentary society. It’s the latest skirmish exposing the new fault line between two Montreals. When writer Hugh McLennan coined the term Two Solitudes, the title of his classic 1945 novel, he was describing the hard-to-reconcile differences between the French and the English In Montreal. Today, it might more aptly apply to the gulf between suburban and urban Montreal. If St-Laurent Blvd. once separated the anglo west end from the francophone east, the dividing line today is not so much a street, as how the street is used. In the distant bastions of Montreal, the car is king, neighbourhood streets meander and sidewalks are often non-existent, sprawling single-family homes have huge lawns and pools, residents shop at big box stores and drive their kids to hockey or soccer practice because there’s no other viable choice. In the centre of Montreal, residents walk, cycle or take transit, winding staircases lead to cozy apartments stacking households two or three high, families congregate in parks, people shop at local markets down the block, and if they have cars at all, residents leave them at home because driving is too hellish. These lifestyle matters also influence the public’s political choices. Mayor Valérie Plante and her Projet Montréal administration are mainly urbanites who govern accordingly, pouring money into parks, and a project office for a new Pink Line of the Montreal métro. Premier François Legault and his new Coalition Avenir Québec government have their power base in the off-island suburbs where more highways and commuter trains are priorities. The realities of the contrasting ways Montrealers go about their lives is giving rise to a new culture war that is playing out in myriad policy decisions, from plans for the new Kirkland Réseau express metropolitain station accessible only to bikes, buses and pedestrians, to the pilot project that closed Mount Royal to through traffic over the summer. Even the city’s new master plan for road construction — which is less focused on patching potholes and more about transforming streetscapes — has been met by cheers or jeers depending on whether one cycles, walks or drives to get around. What makes sense in one part of the city defies logic in another. If you’ve ever tried to walk around Kirkland, (as I attempted one day last summer) the closed-to-cars REM station seems ludicrous. And I say this as a city dweller who hates driving and commutes on foot. The suburbs were not made for walking. And it’s hard to imagine anyone safely crossing highway viaducts with perilously low barriers and narrow sidewalks in the dark of night or dead of winter to take public transit. Likewise the Mount Royal road closure hit a nerve with those who come from afar to enjoy this iconic park. If it’s your backyard, the idea seems brilliant. Similarly the battles brewing over the revitalization of Ste-Catherine St. W., Montreal’s most famous commercial strip, and the proposed Royalmount mega-complex in Town of Mount Royal, are emblematic of the place for which they are conceived. Plante’s administration wants to widen sidewalks, reduce vehicle traffic to one lane and remove 140 parking spots on the first phase of the Ste-Catherine St. plan from Bleury to Mansfield Sts. Now a new study has been commissioned that will examine taking away another 500 street parking spotsall the way to Atwater Ave. Merchants worry whether the shoppers will still come while suburbanites now wonder how they will get downtown. Meanwhile the developer Carbonleo wants to build a new mega mall and 6,000 housing units in an disused industrial zone at the junction of Highways 40 and 15. Located mostly within T.M.R., it was approved by that municipality ages ago. But Plante is irate over the potential traffic impact, with 40,000 to 70,000 extra cars a day predicted to further stall traffic in an already notoriously clogged area. While urban cyclists are calling for a new route along Sherbrooke St. in the West Island, residents are up in arms about the narrowing of vehicle lanes to make way for bikes. How Montrealers’ view these issues largely depends on where they live, what they know and how they move around. We’re two new solitudes sharing one increasingly congested island. ahanes@postmedia.com

    Royalmount "Quinze40"

    Old perceptions/stereotypes take a long time to die off... Now that TMR/VMR has a bilingual/Francophone majority the next hit will be that it's only for "les riches." And don't forget the wealthy Chinese moving in. The point is, there will always be a way to differentiate or separate "us" from "them." Sadly. Can't we move on from the old battles already? Je m'attendais à plus de Lagacé.

  8. Est-ce que les deux tours doivent être construites en même temps à cause de la passerelle? J'imagine que oui. Donc, est-ce qu'il faut vendre 400+ condos avant de démarrer la construction?

  10. As a proud Quebecer (bilingue, mais avec l'anglais comme langue maternelle) who fully believes in the strengths and richness of Canada's two Official Languages, I am extremely angry about Doug Ford's ridiculous move. There is no place in Ontario, in Quebec, or in Canada for taking advantage of minorities in order to score political points. I applaud The Gazette for speaking up and hope that other members of the Quebec anglo community stand in solidarity with our Franco-Ontarian brothers and sisters. https://montrealgazette.com/opinion/editorials/editorial-standing-in-solidarity-with-franco-ontarians Editorial: Standing in solidarity with Franco-Ontarians Ontario's government has delivered a setback to that province's francophones and to the cause of minority language rights across the country. MONTREAL GAZETTE EDITORIAL BOARD (HTTPS://MONTREALGAZETTE.COM/AUTHOR/MONTREAL-GAZETTE-EDITORIAL-BOARD) Updated: November 16, 2018 The Ontario government’s decision to abolish the Office of the French Language Services Commissioner and cancel plans to create a French-language university is a bitter setback to Franco- Ontarians, whose long and valiant struggle for services in their language has inspired official-language minorities across the country. And it comes at a time when francophones in New Brunswick and anglophones in Quebec are apprehensive about what might be in store from their own newly elected provincial governments. Announced in the context of the Ontario government’s economic update Thursday, the moves were among many others meant to get that province’s worrisome budget deficit under better control. Certainly, that is a worthy objective, and belt-tightening exercises inevitably involve difficult choices. However, it seems unfair to choose measures that have a disproportionate impact on minorities. The Office of the French Language Services Commissioner, reporting directly to the Ontario legislature, was created in 2007. Its role has been to ensure respect for the province’s French Language Services Act. While French is not an official language provincially in Ontario, the province’s 600,000-plus francophones are guaranteed certain rights as a matter of law. Rights are of limited value if they are not enforced, however. In addition to handling complaints, the commissioner’s mandate included making recommendations about how to improve delivery of services. Now, the functions, and apparently the dozen or so staff members, of the abolished office will be assigned to the Ombudsman. It’s hard to see that as anything other than a step backward for Franco-Ontarians. It removes a voice for the community that could speak directly to the legislature. As for the reversal on the university, that came as a bitter disappointment, given the Conservatives’ election promise to support it. This week’s moves come on top of the Conservative government’s earlier decision, when it took office in June, to roll back its Liberal predecessor’s creation of a ministry for francophone affairs and return to its previous designation as an office. All told, the changes erode Franco-Ontarians’ previous gains. So it’s no wonder that francophones across the country are speaking out. And Franco- Ontarians seem poised to mobilize on a scale not seen since their ultimately successful fight to save Ottawa’s French-language Montfort Hospital two decades ago. English-speaking Quebecers should stand in solidarity with our minority-language counterparts, for reasons of principle, empathy and, frankly, self-interest. To defend access to services for official-language minorities is to defend national unity and a vision of this country as a place where both languages can be at home.
