When trees fall in the forest
A new AMT suburban train line creating the Train de l'Est out to Mascouche is on the way -- not for a couple years mind you. In order to make way for it, other work needs to be done along the line. Including in the Pointe-aux-Prairies Nature Park which is in the eastern Montreal Borough of Riviere-des-Prairies/ Pointe-aux-Trembles. The park is one of the city of Montreal's network of large parks where people take long walks and cycle. Some people who use the park were crestfallen to see the number of trees that have been cut in the last two weeks for the AMT project.
