A bylaw is to be tabled in the spring of 2020 following public consultations. Here in Town of Mount Royal Council, we adopted in 2017 our Sustainable Development Plan 2016-2020 with 21 objectives to guide the Garden City’s projected environmental protection measures. At first, I was even surprised to read that our Council “shares residents’ concern for environmental issues,” when at the March 27, 2017 Council meeting, they told us that residents are not interested in participating in an environment committee. Then I looked at this sustainable development plan and was worried. Just pretty words to look cool. Considering for instance that one refuse truck’s-worth of plastic is dumped into the sea every minute and that “there will be more plastic than fish in the sea by 2050,” what is Town of Mount Royal doing about it? What about a garbage reduction strategy to reduce the quantity of waste material sent to landfill sites as we see in Beaconsfield? Or a regulation to include demolition waste recycling requirements for all home demolitions like in Vancouver? Has TMR even joined David Suzuki’s Blue Dot movement yet? I don’t want TMR to LOOK cool. I want TMR to BE cool, and be proactive and assess the progress of measures implemented per this sustainable development plan. Not just pretty words, please. @proyvillemo @vmr_tmr . . . #climateaction #climateweek #fridaysforfuture #environment #davidsuzukidn #villemontroyal #villedemontroyal #townofmountroyal #villemo #tmr #vmr #mtl A post shared by Barbara Lapointe (@avenue_vmr_tmr) on Sep 27, 2019 at 7:53am PDT\nThe Town of Mount Royal, aka T.M.R, is by far one of the best places to go get the goods on Halloween night. This neighbourhood is known for its picturesque homes and long residential streets.\nHalloween is the one day of the year when “outsiders” can get a glimpse into this insular community, as residents open their doors and pass out awesome candy bags and mega chocolate bars, making this a must for anyone in the city with a major sweet tooth.\nThere is one specific house on Rue Morrison Avenue that is known for its extensive decorations that evoke a scream or two whenever Halloween comes around. This family manages to outdo itself every year, and their haunted house is definitely worth the commute to T.M.R.\nWestmount\nView this post on Instagram Stairway to Halloween #halloween #pumpkins #jackolantern #october #autumn A post shared by Julie Beaulieu (@juliebienz) on Oct 10, 2019 at 9:54am PDT\nWestmount is pretty much the Beverly Hills of Montreal, right?\nOn Halloween, the owners of these million-dollar homes give away some of the best variety of treats. It is almost as though Westmount residents are unaware that you can buy “fun-size” candy bars to give out because almost every house is giving real-size chocolate bars to trick or treaters. But really, no one's complaining.\nMontreal West\nView this post on Instagram And it’s a start! 💫Petite visite au chantier avant que tout commence 🤗 excitées que nous sommes! #montrealwest #architecturalbeauty #inspireddesigner #designproject - - - - - #beautifulhomes #designworld #patrimoine #oldhouse #oldhouselove #oldhousecharm #architecturaldetails #designproject #interiordesign #interiordesigner #montrealdesign #montreal #timelessdesign #blancmarineliving A post shared by Blanc Marine Living (@blancmarineliving) on Aug 27, 2018 at 5:30am PDT\nMontreal West is a family-oriented neighbourhood that prides itself on its tight-knit community.
