  • Champ des Possibles to be Protected and Managed with Citizen Group - Spacing Montreal
    a little too hard on us First of all all of the members of the CA were extremely interested in your project and there was a great deal of discussion around it Most of us also know who you are and have followed your walking the city trips in the past via spacing and I personally remember discussing many of the issues of the field with you during the citizen forum of 2009 when the momentum for the field was really picking up steam So please know we didn t decide not to support your event lightly However when your request came in we also had three other large requests for events in the field we had our Annual General Meeting and we had a press conference to plan and attend for the announcement of the new zonage and co management agreement That is a lot for a small group of citizen volunteers But that is just a bit of context The real issue for us as a group trying to safeguard a very special and still magical to many space in the middle of a dense urban landscape is to ensure that we are doing the best thing for the field and for the residents and citizens who have consistently raised their voices in defense of this little oasis Since I have been involved in this project the primary goal has always been to protect the wild and non programmed nature of the field and to acknowledge protect and improve the environmental qualities of the site At the end of the day that is really what we are trying to do while always ensuring that the space remains open to everyone and that we all treat it is a shared community space Since spring you and others have approached us with requests for special events in the field and in most cases the requests have been fairly urgent Which means we need to make decisions quickly But as a new co manager of the site with the borough there are still a lot of unanswered questions we need to discuss What kinds of events could the field host and what kinds of events should it not host How many people would be too much given the fact that we don t want to trample too many plants and we don t want to disturb our neighbours It shouldn t be forgotten that les Carmelites the convent right next door have a special status in the neighbourhood and the fact that there are not supposed to be activities that disturb the convent is one of the primary reasons we still have the field the way it is For example when it was suggested that the field also become a public space for the Mile End to host events for the neighbourhood this was quickly rejected because that would infringe on the tranquility of the Carmelites So the field is meant to be a space of tranquility and quiet That doesn

  • Vote in the Potholes vs Corruption Debate! - Spacing Montreal
    in potholes after April 15 2013 I m inviting you to answer NO you do not want the city to grant the contract knowing that we will not be able to repair potholes YES you would like us to grant the contract that will allow us to fix potholes It may seem laughable Montreal politics do seem to reach hilarious new lows on a weekly basis but this is important It s a shame about the systemic corruption they are telling us but are you really willing to be inconvenienced by a change in the status quo The issues is being framed so as to make us believe that what s in the best interests of 7 construction companies and their cronies at city hall is in the best interests of citizens But there s got to be another way I am not an expert in construction but I m willing to bet there are more than 7 companies in Montreal nay the country that can produce asphalt I am not an expert in asphalt but I ve heard that there are substance that can fill a pothole for more than one measly year that there are ways of building roads that are a little more environmentally sustainable and lead to lower maintenance costs in the long run And I m not an expert in public relations but Montrealers are going to look really pathetic if we explicitly vote in favour of organized crime over potholes So let those cracks and gaping holes in the pavement be a reminder that our system of government is broken Now click here and vote Subscribe to Mag Share Post Tweet Post Buy Merch andise Related Posts What does a Starbucks in Jean Talon Market Say About our Urban Landscape Tweet More posts by

  • Beyond Street Food, Dépanneur Cuisine - Spacing Montreal
    a budding tradition of under the radar food for those who prefer to walk on the wild side Dépanneur cuisine Handwritten signs advertising everything from hot dogs and paninis to samosas and Chinese pizza dot the chaotic windows of corner stores in every neighbourhood My local dépanneur owner Li was eager to tell me about the business although careful not to spill any trade secrets that might be picked up in the competitive corner store world His food permit stapled to the wall behind the cash register costs under 200 a year and the little sandwich counter in his dépanneur is subject to annual inspections He dosen t have the kind of ventilation system that would allow for a deep fryer or a grill so he sticks to the stove top toaster oven and microwave A few months ago Li also acquired an espresso machine which he boasts produces far better fare than the nearby Tim Hortons In a primarily residential area Li explained selling paninis and boxes of Chinese food isn t a gold mine but it helps make ends meet especially during the winter when drink sales are down But the business isn t for everyone Li described the additional hours that must be invested in ordering and prepping ingredients each morning and in cleaning the kitchen each evening all on top of the 15 hour work day that he shares 7 days a week with his wife Fortunately Li s wife is the type of woman who collects cookbooks and dosen t feel burdened by the extra hours in the kitchen You have to love cooking Li says don t treat it as a chore Towards the end of our conversation Li also mentioned that this kind of food counter might be necessary for the survival of
