  • Le fleuve est partout - Spacing Montreal
    que vous tenez il a probablement voyagé de Chine jusqu à Montréal sur un porte conteneur qui a remonté le fleuve pour arriver jusqu à vous Allez aux toilettes tirez la chasse d eau vous alimentez le courant qui descend à partir de la pointe est de l île vers Sorel et le lac Saint Pierre Le fleuve est partout et c est il me semble en redécouvrant son rôle fonctionnel que l on en appréciera davantage l importance À ce titre quatre idées 1 Dans le fleuve il y a des poissons mais les poissons que l on mange proviennent rarement du fleuve Il y aurait différentes manières d encourager la pêche sportive j attends le lancement de Chalouxi le service de chaloupes en libre service mais il serait encore plus intéressant de relancer à petite échelle la pêche commerciale dans le fleuve avec un marché de poisson sous le pont Jacques Cartier 2 On aime se dire que Montréal est une ville de créativité de jeux vidéo et de rock indépendant mais Montréal est aussi une ville portuaire où 18 000 emplois dépendent de l industrie maritime On oublie continuellement le port probablement parce que les occasions de le visiter sont à peu près inexistantes Le port pourrait organiser une porte ouverte par année ou mieux un évènement grand public marché aux puces parmi les camions Céline Dion en spectacle sur un porte conteneur chorégraphie utilisant les grues géantes 3 Au milieu du XIXe siècle nous avons creusé 8 km de canal afin d apporter l eau du fleuve jusqu à la station de pompage Atwater qui l envoie dans nos robinets Le canal de l aqueduc est en quelque sorte comme le canal de Lachine un bras de fleuve artificiel qui pénètre dans l île c est aussi malheureusement un espace auquel nous essayons de penser le moins souvent possible C est pourtant le cours d eau idéal pour la pêche le canot ou la baignade puisque l eau est calme pas trop profonde et dépourvue des substances toxiques qui dorment sous le canal de Lachine Redécouvrir l aqueduc nous permettrait de comprendre que l eau vient de quelque part 4 J aime penser que tout le réseau d aqueduc et d égout tous les tuyaux qui transportent de l eau au fleuve ou la lui retournent font partie d un même vaste réseau hydrique Le fleuve n arrête jamais de couler lorsqu il entre dans le canal de l aqueduc voyage dans les tuyaux séjourne dans votre verre d eau repart dans les égouts puis coule au bout de la station d épuration Jean R Marcotte le fleuve au fond ne fait qu un détour dans votre bain dans son parcours qui l amène des Grands Lacs jusqu à l océan Atlantique Et si l on accepte de considérer tout le réseau de distribution d eau comme une extension du fleuve il est assez frappant de constater que le fleuve est omniprésent sur le mont Royal

  • Photo du jour: Quai des Convoyeurs - Spacing Montreal
    Date of photo September 19 2013 Photographer Martin New at Montreal in Pictures The Conveyor Quay in the Old Port of Montreal is now open to the public after being restored The marine tower at the end of the quay the last of its kind in the port of Montreal was built in the mid 1950s and was used for unloading grain from boats to the grain elevators At the time there were two marine towers on the Conveyor Quay Subscribe to Mag Share Post Tweet Post Buy Merch andise Tweet More posts by Martin New 2 comments Neither the author nor Spacing necessarily agrees with posted comments Spacing reserves the right to edit or delete comments entirely See our Comment Policy Rich 2 years ago Looks great except there are no benches and you can t walk quite to the end This tower isn t the last of its kind There are two more just like on the south side of Silo No 5 You can see them clearly in Google Maps Martin New 2 years ago I agree benches would be nice maybe they plan to add some Likewise I hope that they will remove the fence so as to allow access to the end of the quay but since the tower is deemed too unsafe to open to the public they will need to find a way to prevent people climbing up it You are right there are 2 similar towers near Silo 5 The Vieux Port website however states this is the last of its kind so maybe they function differently Leave a Reply Cancel reply Your email address will not be published Required fields are marked Name Email Website Comment Search Advertisement Spacing Magazine fall 2015 Order issue Subscribe In these stores Popular Posts Montage

  • Jane Jacobs on Toronto and Montreal development trends circa 1969 - Spacing Montreal
    felt I could relate to Jabos description of Toronto s civic schizophrenia On the one level there s the spirit of individuals and small groups who do things what you might call the vernacular spirit this is all very informal and genius quite romantic and full of fun she says while on the other hand the official spirit of Toronto is stamp out fun pompous impressed with mediocrity if it s very very big and expensive Her take on Montreal was more surprising I notice frequently criticism that Montreal has done so much building including expo and very grand buildings and there doesn t seem to be much slum clearance I think it s one of the most fortunate things about Montreal that hasn t gone in for slum clearance she says While it is hard to believe that in the midst of the Drapeau era during the decade that saw the Faubourg à m lasse Goose Village and the Village des Tanneries razed Jacobs perceived Montreal as having a refreshing approach to mixing rehabilitated old buildings with new construction it is even more stunning to realize that critics were calling for even more neighbourhood clearance How different things seem in hindsight And while Jacobs vintage takes on highway and waterfront development in Montreal are fascinating she also boldly addresses the toll that discrimination towards Francophone Montrealers in terms of access to capital for development has had on our urban landscape Subscribe to Mag Share Post Tweet Post Buy Merch andise Tweet More posts by Alanah Heffez One comment Neither the author nor Spacing necessarily agrees with posted comments Spacing reserves the right to edit or delete comments entirely See our Comment Policy JC 4 years ago this is all very informal and genius That would be ingenious Leave a
