Pedestrianizing Montreal

by

A 15-block stretch of of the Montreal ‘Ville-Marie’ borough’s Sainte-Catherine street will be ‘pedestrianized’ this summer (June 17 – Sept 3), making it the city’s longest pedestrian mall. 01

“…all things considered, it can be looked at as a good test case. It will probably be some fun too.” 02

The “plan’s creator, Ville Marie Mayor Benoît Labonté, says the mall will be the longest in Canada. And he says it will cost taxpayers only $50,000.” 03
