Two items that are intimately linked, today:
The Quebec Govt is moving to reorganise the Agence metropolitaine de Transport (AMT) with a view to enabling it to more single mindedly deliver transport solutions in the greater metropolitan region, or so the Gazette article suggests.
Meanwhile, the Quebec Govt is consulting Quebeckers again on how we should be achieving greenhouse gas targets. Notice, of course, that 50% of Montreal’s GHG are in the transport sector; transport is the only sector in which GHG levels are rising, and rising very fast. Deadline to comment: February 27th.
Critics agree the only way to achieve our GHG targets by 2020 is a focussed effort on transport.
The MTQ’s Turcot Interchange is a step in the opposite direction, critics argue.
