Mayor Gérald Tremblay on Tuesday unveiled a new sustainable-development plan for Montreal that will focus on improving air quality and reducing greenhouse-gas emissions, conserving water and reducing garbage sent to landfills, and making neighbourhoods more livable to stem the exodus of residents off the island.

 

The five-year plan, which Tremblay said will cost $1 million in the first year, was adopted by the city's executive committee Tuesday morning.

 

It includes a goal of cutting polluting greenhouse-gas emissions by 30 per cent in 2020 compared to 1990 levels, a target that is even more ambitious than the provincial government's, which is 20 per cent by 2020.

Why don't they start by repairing the aqueduc system throughout the city. We lose 40% of our water before it even gets to our homes...that's pathetic!
