Zero dollars from Montreal agglomeration for Cavendish link for 2016, 2017

Leave a comment

The Montreal agglomeration budget provides a total of $0 for the long-awaited Cavendish link project between Côte St. Luc and St. Laurent in 2016 and 2017, Côte St. Luc Councillor Dida Berku told council regular Bernard Tonchin at the November council meeting.

However, $13 million will be provided in 2018, she added.

“At the last agglomeration meeting, when I asked the question to Aref Salem, who is responsible, he said ‘don’t worry, we’re still working on it.

The whole Cavendish link dossier has been moving forwards and backwards for some 50 years, with promises of funding and action, and other times the matter being placed on the back burner, especially when the demerger of municipalities took place in 2006.

“Will you as acting mayor bring up the issue of Cavendish, since our new prime minister mentioned there will be a few billion dollars of infrastructure?” Itman asked Pro-Mayor Glenn Nashen.
