NDG-CDN council summit talks transit, housing and more

MONTREAL — Decision-makers from the different levels of government met to talk about major issues facing the Côte-des-Neiges–Notre-Dame-de-Grâce borough on Friday.

Following a meeting in January, the second intergovernmental leaders summit was held to address key issues concerning borough residents, such as building universally accessible metro station access at the MUHC superhospital, transferring the ownership of the Hippodrome de Montréal to the city, expanding partnership with borough school boards, increasing funding for affordable housing and public transit.

Borough mayor Russell Copeman said the aim of the summit was to break down silos between different levels of government.

“Citizens don’t really care who is responsible for what: they want results,” said Copeman in a statement.

“[They] expect their elected officials to work together for the public good.”
