Yesterday (Tuesday, March 18th) Denis Coderre's administration reworked their budget to pay for six projects the mayor of Montreal deems top priorities.

Here they are:

1. Cavendish Blvd. extension ($4 million)

  • The street is planned to be extended to Royalmount Avenue in CDN/NDG, with a second phase (if all goes well with money) to link it to Cavendish in in Côte-St-Luc

2. Improving St. Catherine b/w Atwater & Bleury ($15 million)

3. Covering a Section of the Ville-Marie Expressway ($4 million)

  • Project to cover an open-air part of the Ville-Marie, between Hotel-de-Ville and Sanguinet.

4. Building New Public Works Yard in Ahuntsic-Cartierville ($25.5 million)

  • Same as above, just a different locale.

5. Respiratory Equipment for Montreal Firefighters ($10 million)

  • Apparently what Montreal's firefighters are using now are defunct/expired. I'd say this should be number one, because the city needs brawny men and brave women to rescue people from burning buildings.

6. Rebuilding Public Works Yard in Mercier–Hochelaga-Maisonneuve ($16.2 million)

  • Basically more warehouses, garages, storage yards and shops for the city.

What are your priorities for funding in Montreal?
