  1. Every single person that I have met who has lived in Griffintown absolutely loved it, no exceptions. Same goes with Bois-Franc, yet everyone complains about them as the examples not to follow. It’s very strange to me that non-residents criticize the way they do!
  2. https://montrealgazette.com/news/local-news/west-island-gazette/dorval-residents-weigh-in-on-proposed-16-storey-residential-project?utm_term=Autofeed&utm_medium=Social&utm_source=Facebook#Echobox=1581424553 Dorval residents weigh in on proposed 16-storey residential project "We’re going to look like the 401 in Toronto": Dorval resident says of proposed 16-storey residential development
  3. Credit is cheap and easily accessible. Investors looking for alternatives to capital markets. Baby boomers sitting on wealth and gifting to children.
  4. Is it really worthy of OMG though? I hate to be a Debbie downer but Canvar doesn’t make me feel warm and fuzzy inside. “Mais au moins ça bouche un trou”

    Just like the construction boom was behind in Montreal, and we’re living it now. Similarly shopping mall conversion/integration is on its way. Plans were proposed for Place Versailles and I bet others (eg Place Vertu) will follow suit.
  6. I am against the idea in general primarily because it rewards/reinforces bad corporate behaviour, even more so in this particular case. To answer your question, absolutely not. On the one hand the government has shown zero financial responsibility by loosely investing in Bombardier and on the other hand Bombardier executives have proven that they could get away with just about anything while they continue to enrich the themselves. The public should be outraged. Hence the “fool me once” quote.

    really hard to tell which building from the header photo is being built.
  8. A government bailout with no financial convenants as to executive behaviour leading to unmeritorious bonuses is fraud. Plain and simple, the tax payers, you and I, are victims of fraud. Fool me once, shame on me. Good riddance. You cannot keep blindly doubling down.
  9. The alternative is forever financing a flawed company with taxpayer money. How does that make any sense? Would you continuously invest in something that doesn’t work? In the meantime the C-Suite execs get enormous bonuses and salaries? Cmon man - government bailouts should be forbidden. Any sound business mind would agree - if you can’t survive without a handout, get out of business.
  10. Anxiously awaiting the next major project announcement (excl gare centrale). Where will she be?
  11. That escalated quickly? No need to be confrontational, I would expect more partiality from an admin. When I was single, I didn’t understand the appeal of such neighborhoods either. Now that I have my own family, my perspective has changed. Have a nice weekend Vince.
