Saying that you respect the rules and regulations is not saying very much. Neither government nor business has any track record of bringing anything but systematic ruination, degradation, and setting the stage for collapse. It might seem to be taking a long time and stay under the radar of the average citizen, but the ecological, economic, and social psychological costs of business as usual are beginning to rise exponentially. Continuing the methods that have brought us to the brink does not seem like sound public relations messaging at this historical juncture. A paradigm shift is urgently required in both government and business and not another rhetorical defence of our failed modus operandi of unsustainability.

In today's edition of La Presse, there is an article: Protection des milieux naturels « Fin de la récréation » dans le Grand Montréal . https://www.lapresse.ca/actualites/environnement/2022-04-01/protection-des-milieux-naturels/fin-de-la-recreation-dans-le-grand-montreal.php Seeing how the tide is changing with regards to natural spaces and development, what are you prepared to do to save the forest on your property? It is full of rare and unique plants and tree species, as well as the brown snake, vernal ponds and red-backed salamander. The trees you hope to plant in your plaza will never come close to having the highly sophisticated and intricate biodiversity that already exists on your property. If you cut down the forest, you will lose not only a priceless ecosystem, but access to nature for everyone, a place to live for wildlife and a buffer from the noise of the highway and the REM for locals. Consider modernizing your thinking and recognize that natural spaces aren't disposable.

Although the planting of trees is welcome, this space contains a high percentage of mineralized surfaces. Furthermore, the benefits of a tree canopy will only be optimized when trees reach maturity several years down the road. The additional of substantial green space is critical to help counter heat island effects.

So sick of all these condos. The area cannot handle more traffic. You will not create affordable units. Go away.

No more condos. We need more parks, affordable food.
