Petition against paid parking at Pierrefonds-Roxboro train station

Residents outside of a council meeting in Pierrefonds-Roxoboro

PIERREFONDS, QC - Residents in Pierrefonds want their borough to stand with them in a fight against the AMT.

A group wearing yellow squares and armed with a 300-signature petition attended the borough council meeting Monday.

The transit commission plans to bring in paid parking spaces at several of its train stations, including the Pierrefonds-Roxboro station.

Opponents say the move would discourage people from using public transit and would punish those who may not be able to afford the cost of a train pass and a parking pass.
