Congestion between the northern suburbs and Laval is negatively impacting the quality of life of residents and users;
Two major projects in Laval and in the northern suburbs have been anticipated for several years, namely the completion of Highway 19 with public transit lanes and the construction of reserved lanes on Highway 15;
The proposed completion of Highway 19 in Laval and Bois-des-Filion has been deemed necessary and requiring urgent action by the office of public hearings on environmental issues (BAPE);
These two road infrastructure projects have the support of the communities, the RCMs of Laval and Les Laurentides, the Communauté métropolitaine de Montréal, the major political parties in Quebec and Canada, and thousands of citizens and socio economic stakeholders; and
The Government of Canada provides funding for public transit infrastructure projects under the $186 billion Public Transit Infrastructure Fund;
We, the undersigned, residents of the greater Montreal area, call upon the Government of Canada to intervene with the competent authorities to ensure the completion of Highway 19 with reserved public transit lanes and the construction of reserved public transit lanes on Highway 15, in the northern suburbs of Montreal, as quickly as possible, and to provide funding for these two projects.
