« We’re just a group of neighbourhood residents who want to make improvements to public space, and the streets are the biggest part of our public space. »
– Mathieu Vick

L’association Mile-End sans voitures vous invite à la première Journée des bons voisins. Samedi le 17 juillet entre 11h et 18h, la rue St-Viateur Ouest entre Jeanne-Mance et St-Urbain sera ouverte aux citoyens en devenant complètement piétonne.

Venez rencontrer une foule de groupes communautaires à l’info-marché et venez appuyer les artisans locaux au marché artisanal. Il y aura bien sûr des activités pour tous et toutes avec de la musique, de la danse, du bricolage pour les enfants et bien plus encore.

Apportez vos chaises, parasols, pateugeoires, guitares, plantes d’interieur, etc. et profitez de l’espace public.

  1. funny how every generation thinks they invented the wheel. we had a festival called gesture for peace in the eighties it lasted seven years and migrated to lafontaine park and jeanne mance park until it died beautifully in the late eighties. it promoted similar issues as this one does. peace thru multiculturalism. neighbours meeting neighbours.
    personally i do not favour turning st. viateur into a walking street because such a movement does not take into consideration what the neighbourhood really wants and is prepared to do. the greening of the mile end would be a better idea. green rooves and solar panels are the kind of things that i would encourage.
    the expropriation of the jean jean jean building and the eviction of its tenants is a sign of what we can expect will happen if we try to work with a city that has one basic reason for existing and that is to expand its tax base by making the neighborhood palatable to wealthy citizens at the expense of the less fortunate who originally settled here simply because it was cheap and not like the rich to exploit an exploitive real estate system.
