If the future of those highly-prized heritage properties in Sillery was in the hands of Quebec City Mayor Régis Labeaume, a vast new park would be created, the religious communities would be properly compensated and private developers could still build.
The decision, though, isn't in his hands.
We hear from Mayor Labeaume, along with the perspective of Father Marcel Poirier, with les Pères Augustins de l'Assomption, in Sillery.
Lastly, Marc Simard, the president of Investissement Benmore, weighs in. His company has been awaiting approval for its residential project, called Le Domaine Sous les Bois
, on a piece of the land within the heritage lands in Sillery.
