In my Montréal neighbourhood of NDG, the Ministry of Transport is cutting trees in the “protected” eco-territory of the Saint-Jacques Escarpment.

The Saint-Jacques Escarpment is a critical habitat for migratory birds as well as the Brown Snake; a species at risk of being classified as “endangered” or “vulnerable” according to the provincial Ministry of Forests, Wildlife and Parks.

The city of Montreal’s website indicates that “this eco-territory is expected to undergo many changes” due to the work being done on the Turcot interchange.

As Montrealers we must take a stand against the destruction of this supposedly “protected” and very important urban green space.
