Glenn founded the CSL volunteer Citizens on Patrol and as a volunteer and champion of our Emergency Medical Services and Public Safety, CSL is the safest community on the Island of Montreal.

“Dear Glenn: It was a pleasure meeting you and Mitchell Brownstein this evening. I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for the many years of service that you have given us as our Councillor in District 6.  We have lived  here for 30 years and have had a few situations where we asked for your help.  In each instance you addressed and resolved the problem in a timely manner. We have always felt that you were a phone call or an email away.

Tom Reichman, Lockwood Avenue. (October 2017)


“You are more than just a great representative. You are a person who cares about the community and acts on his passion to initiate new projects and make them happen. Thank you!”

Morris and Marianna Argalgi, Eldridge Avenue (October 2017)


“Glenn is an amazing person, family man, neighbour and district councillor. He is the type of leader that will sit at his dinner table with his CSL Public Safety walkie-talkie ‘squaking’ in the background, just in case! He is always there for all his constituents and those of the other districts as well because that is the type of person that Glenn J. Nashen is for our city.

Any time our family has ever needed anything in our 12 years of owning our home Glenn has helped facilitate those requests.

Good on you Glenn for your continued leadership and positive attitude towards our city and initiatives you are discussing.  You are so well respected because you put us first! Keep up the awesome work. I know that you will continue to love, support and lead within our community because that is what kind of special human being you have truly demonstrated to be as a community leader.”

Mitchell and Corrie White, Melling Avenue (October 2017)



“From its humble beginnings of yesterday to a thriving City on the Island of Montreal today, Cote Saint Luc did not happen simply by magical thinking. It took an enormous amount of dedication and effort to get it to where it is at present.

Glenn Nashen continues to play a very significant role in building an enviable and quality community.

Bravo, Glenn! I hope the citizens of your District will see fit to hand you another term as their representative on the CSL City Council.

In this way, we will all be WINNERS!”

Brahms Silver, CSL resident (November 2017)
