Boroughs: Pierrefonds-Roxboro

The Vrai changement pour Montréal, Team McIntyre in Pierrefonds-Roxboro, is the local team that will meet the needs of the citizens of the borough and will not be a satellite of a Montreal team, for which the mayor will make all the decisions.

With this in mind, the Vrai changement pour Montréal in Pierrefonds-Roxboro wants to put forward:

  • A local team created for local governance, in order to respond more adequately to the needs of the citizens.
  • A better planning management in case of floods, to avoid replicating the nebulous organization during the floods of spring 2017. Citizens rely on their institutions to help and guide them in the process.
  • That the green spaces be protected, in particular that of the nature park of l'Anse-à-l'Orme.
  • Support to community pools.
  • The revitalisation of the Sunnybrooke and Roxboro stations.
