Inuit health centre still causing controversy

There is still no concensus in park Extension/Villeray/St Michel over whether to convert the former Chinese Hospital - now an empty building - into a residence for Inuit from Nunavik who need medical care in Montreal.

We've heard in the past about opposition to the project.

But now a new group of residents has formed a welcoming committee - and they took their ideas and petition to a borough council meeting.

But borough mayor, Anie Samson allowed only three questions on the issue, saying the decision is on hold until she receives an impact report from the Montreal Health Agency.

Genevieve Beaudet is the organizer of the citizens committee in favor of the Inuit residence.

Patricia Kearns is a new member of the group.
