Montreal Monday: Forgetting face mask ban, failing Saint-Raymond, and rude transit riders

Each Monday, we bring you some of the popular posts from our sister blog, Spacing Montréal. We’ll keep an eye open for topics and discussions that are pertinent to current public space issues in Toronto.

• Although the vote to ban face masks at demonstrations has been postponed, it’s hard to tell if the City is throwing in their towel on the project.  As Christopher DeWolf points out, the logic behind the proposed regulation seems especially faulty in a city wound up in winter for so much of the year.

• Alanah Heffez recalls the pleasantness of living in Saint-Raymond but points out her disappointment in its failure to integrate commercial space on Upper Lachine road.

• Christopher DeWolf reports on a transit-complaints column in the Gazette where two sociologists say Montrealers lack transit etiquette and should be more considerate.
