By Né entre les rapides
La question des sources de financement revient dans toutes les discussions portant sur des propositions de prolongement ou de création de nouvelles lignes. J'ai pensé qu'il serait utile de créer un fil qui porterait spécifiquement sur cette question -- ça éviterait des répétitions, et en même temps ça permettrait de faire des comparaisons entre les différentes "combinaisons" de financement qui ont été choisies et celles qui pourraient l'être pour les nouvelles propositions. Les éléments de discussion pourraient inclure (sans y être limités) aux suivants:
- Les conditions attachées à la participation 1) de la CDPQ-i; 2) de la BiC; 3) du Gouvernement du Québec; 4) du Gouvernement du Canada; 5) des municipalités et de leurs sociétés de transport.
- Le degré d'effort exigé des usagers.
- Des exemples de traitements différents et les motifs sous-jacents (par exemple REM 1 versus tramway de Québec)

The renaissance of Viger Square
Phil O'Brien Senior advisor
Telemedia DevelopmentI Inc. Mr. Philip O'Brien will be conducting a presentation about the Viger site on the eastern edge of Old Montreal. He will discuss the history of the site: the building of a grand hotel and railway station in what was then the central core of Montreal, its prominence as a prestigious address for business elites, and its cultural significance for the city of Montreal. The context of its decline during the 20th century will be outlined: from the changing economic conditions in the 1930s and its demise to its current state in the urban environment, resulting from the expansion of the railway yards, the digging of the open trench of the Ville-Marie expressway, and the demolition of a vast number of houses to make room for the CBC project. He will then highlight the exciting potential for redevelopment in light of changing local economic conditions and redevelopment opportunities for this area of town.

A 45 - acre comprehensive, master planned office campus on Nuns' Island. This multi-phased office complex is geared to those tenants looking for the quality environment offered in suburban locations but with the benefits of a site located just five minutes from Montreal's central business district. Availabilities range from 50,000 sq.ft. to 500,000 sq.ft. in various configurations, all of which will be LEED certified. With the arrival of Bell Canada on Nuns' Island, public transportation has improved with investments in infrastructure being made by various governmental authorities; the neighborhood is poised for even more development. Companies such a Yellow Pages, Multi-prêt, Bombardier Recreational Products and the Bank of Canada continue to enjoy the exceptional office environment that Nuns' Island has to offer with its abundant retail offerings, bike paths, nature walks and lush landscaped public areas.
After all these years I think it's about time this happens.
