City File: Referendum over proposed Ilot Irving development

IMG256.jpgResidents of Quebec City's St. Jean Baptiste neighbourhood will vote this weekend to decide the fate of a controversial housing development. Ainslie MacLellan examines the impact of the Ilot Irving debate on the community.

Some of the voices we hear include Nicolas Lefebvre-Lemieux, who is with the comité populaire St. Jean Baptiste, and supports the project. The opponents of the development give their reasons as well, including some sound from this YouTube video.
