That corner is very industrial. Converting it to residential could make sense, but who would want to live on the corner of Sources and Hymus?

You say that, but further down Boulevard des Sources, there are peoples living right under the flight path leading to the runway. That's got to be an awfully noisy place to live.

It’s not like it used to be. There are only two or three airlines (Air Inuit, Canadian North and Raglan) with legacy 737 aircraft using the old, noisy engines, and they only operate during daytime. Also, runway 10-28 was decommissioned so all the homes in the area around St-Louis west of Sources are no longer under the paths. Certainly less bothersome these days than living in Beaconsfield and Baie-d’Urfé along the CP/CN lines and the 20/40.

The train that runs through Beaconsfield didn't bother me so much, it put me the sleep hearing them 😆

West Island ❤️ concrete

As a west islander, that's not really the first thought that comes to mind. Much more excited and amazed at this new metro level service that we will now have access to.
Besides, what other material would they have used to build this? Metal? Wood? Plastic? Granite? Uranium?

Exactly. Despite the system’s (many) shortcomings — and we are discovering more every single day — it’ll still be a quantum leap for transit in the West Island.
