Thank you to Police Station 9 officers Marie-Christine Norbert, Vincent Deangelis, and more, for educating and reaching out to our residents at the recent Senior Safety Day at the Cavendish Mall.

“Your visibility instills confidence and the little gifts are valued and useful,” said CSL Councillor Ruth Kovac who visited the kiosk.

Ruth and I have worked on every major (and most minor) safety campaigns since we began volunteering at the CSL Emergency Measures Organization in the early 1980s. Thanks to our first class security programs CSL remains the safest place on the Island of Montreal. We need to be vigilant, always looking to improve and expand these services to ensure we stay in this position and that just what Ruth and I speak out on throughout the year.

Celebrating Canada Day 2017 with our local police officers. Thank you to these fine officers for their vigilance in CSL.

Large swath of CSL without power, trees down, after “micro-burst” sweeps Western Montreal

City crews preparing to remove branches from trees that came down on Hudson north of CSL Rd.

The storm earlier today created havoc across many parts of Quebec. Areas hardest hit include the West End. Large trees, some over 200 years old were uprooted in NDG following the worst part of the storm that lasted one or two minutes.

In Cote Saint-Luc, many residents are still without power as midnight approaches. Many trees were knocked down.

I did a late night loop around Cote Saint-Luc to survey the situation and saw several Hydro Quebec crews working to restore power and city staff and volunteers ensuring our safety.
Councillor Steven Erdelyi said, “I was driving through my district and saw teams from Public Works, Public Security, vCOP and EMS out keeping the residents safe.”
“I saw our teams working in conjunction with Hydro, vCOP ensuring that streets were blocked off, crews removing trees and branches, foremen leading HQ to the site of downed lines and speaking to and reassuring residents. I saw Public Security agents putting flares down at key intersections to provide some light and EMS crews supporting the fire department to help frail residents going to their apartments on upper floors,” Erdelyi said.

“A special thank you to John, Thierry, Laurence, Claude and Jordy (all of whom I saw in action tonight) for all your hard work and dedication,” Erdelyi added.
Said Mayor Brownstein, “Thank you all. You are truly amazing and appreciated very much.  You all make us very proud.  I have been receiving compliments for your great work by email from residents all evening.”
CSL has issued an overnight parking tolerance across the city due to ongoing power failures.
The CSL Tennis Club will be closed Wednesday as the power lines are down and some fences have been damaged.

Don’t leave your garage door opener remote in your car


There are reports across Canada including the Island of Montreal of thieves breaking into cars parked on driveways and using the garage door openers to access the home.

Please do not leave your garage door opener remote in your car when you park outside your home. Instead please get into the habit of bringing it inside with you. You can even buy small remotes that fit on a keychain to replace the one on your visor.

Every month Cote Saint-Luc volunteer Citizens on Patrol crews alert 20 or more residents that they have left their garage door open. Be sure to close yours.

Finally, remember to always close your garage when you’re not there and lock the door leading from your garage to your home. If you’re going away, consider disconnecting your automatic garage door opener from the power outlet.

Côte Saint-Luc is the safest city on the island with patrollers by police, Côte Saint-Luc Public Security, and volunteer Citizens on Patrol. Let’s keep it that way by making it harder on thieves.

If you notice any suspicious activity call 9-1-1 immediately.

Montreal police launch pedestrian awareness campaign

Leave a comment

Montreal police have launched an awareness campaign after two fatal collisions involving pedestrians in the city’s west end in the last two years.

The aim is to alert the public about the dangers of crossing street intersection without being careful.

Dubbed Operation Intersection Safety, the campaign targets both pedestrians and motorists alike, and runs until July 14 in Côte Saint-Luc, Hampstead and Montreal West.

According to Montreal Police Commander Jean O’Malley, of stations 9 and 12, the aim is to reach as many people as possible.

“We have police officers stationed at various intersections, mostly at rush hour or at lunchtime, when we can reach most of the people,” he said.

“It is mostly elderly people in the area and they are grateful that we are giving them this information.”

In fact, O’Malley explained that the pedestrians who died in the last two accidents were seniors – the last one, just a few months ago.

However, the problem of high collision rates at intersections aren’t just limited to that part of the city.

Police note that “[o]n the island of Montreal, 77 per cent of personal injury collisions occurred within five meters of an intersection or directly at the intersection,” and perhaps the biggest cause, O’Malley explained, were distractions.

Additionally, many people don’t know when it’s permissible to cross at a traffic light.

O’Malley explained that “a lot of pedestrians think that just because there’s a green light that it’s OK to cross.”

Yet, crossing when the red hand is flashing is an infraction and pedestrians can be ticketed for doing it.

This is the first time that  police are conducting this pedestrian safety campaign and, according to O’Malley, “all we want to do is to keep people safe.”
