Tonight I presented the Green Party of Quebec's position against a mega real-estate project located on one of the island of Montreal's largest green spaces in Pierrefonds Ouest. This project represents a major step backwards for the protection of natural spaces on the island of Montreal. To make matters worse,...

I am in Quebec superior court today in support of the Green Coalition and the Sierra Club Quebec's injunction request to protect the "Technoparc" wetland; a habitat critical to the survival of several endangered species of birds.

I will be attending this protest later today to demonstrate the Green Party of Quebec's opposition to the destruction of l'Anse a l'Orme.

Just returned from the Pierrefonds-Roxboro municipal council meeting where members of Sauvons l'Anse-à-l'Orme, the Green Coalition and the Sierra club Québec presented the city with over 9700 signatures of people who oppose the development of l’Anse-à-l'Orme. Anse-à-l'Orme represents a major section of the remaining green space on the island of...

Just returned from the Sainte-Anne-De-Bellevue municipal council meeting along with members of the Green Coalition. The city is considering developing a large section of green space in the north of the city. Let's hope they decide to do the right thing and side with conservation of the land rather than...
