Environmental work causes buzz about Dorval Municipal Golf Course fate

DORVAL — Stakes that have appeared on the Dorval Municipal Golf Course have created a buzz of speculation that digging could begin soon.

Ricardo Hrtschan says they are there because an environmental survey is taking place as part of the end-of-lease terms.

Dorval learned almost one year ago that the airport is ending its lease with the city and planning to expand onto the course land.
