Please note: wet, snowy weather has forced organizers to postpone today’s event
Stop by the Vendôme metro today starting at 4 pm and you’ll see something unusual – a clothesline replete with all sorts of briefs and undies.
Why? NDG resident Michael Simkin, along with folks from the St-Raymond Residents Association, want to inspire people who live in the area surrounding the new MUHC English superhospital to submit briefs (mémoires in French) to the Office de la consultation publique de Montréal. People in the St. Raymond’s section of NDG, for instance, may want to let the OCPM know what they think of plans to close Upper Lachine Rd. to all traffic except pedestrians and cyclists and what they want for the neighbourhood.
Public consultations start on March 11.
If you have ideas but you’re clueless on the whole brief submission process, organizers will be giving out a handy how-to guide to make things easier. And bring undies for the (snowy) clothesline, if you’re game to have some fun tackling serious issues.
