Turcot Trouble

Everyone in Montreal knows about the Turcot interchange. It's the big crumbling jumble of elevated roads which connects a few highways. The Quebec government has proposed to rebuild the interchange. However, their plan is not going to help our sustainable development in Montreal. It will allow for 25 000 more cars to travel on the highway per day. They don't include strong public transport plans. We need public transport to save the environment and to rid our city of the notorious smog. Every year when the smog appears, a few people die from it. It pollutes the air we breathe every second of every day. Hopefully, the provincial government will modify their plans to let public transport expand and to protect our air. The car should not be a priority.
