New urban boulevard for the West Island?
Another day, another raft of announcements from the Charest government ahead of the election campaign that's expected to start tomorrow.
One of the big ones involves a new North-South urban boulevard through the West Island to take some of the pressure off of St. Charles, St. Jean and Henri-Daoust in Kirkland.
"We've been promised that for as long as I've lived here which is 32 years," Henri-Daoust street resident Salvatore D'Urso told CJAD. "We also heard about the 30 being built for, what, 40 years and it's still not completed."
The announcement from the Charest Liberals would involve the 440, the highway that runs through Laval.
That's just one of the promises the Charest government is making today, as we approach tomorrow's expected election call.
Others involve school infrastructure, money for sports at a Montreal school board and a cultural centre in Sherbrooke.
The government has at least 4 announcements coming today, to add to the 6 it made yesterday.
