What is future of Train de l'Ouest and Cavendish?
The future of two key transportation projects may be in jeopordy with the change of government in Quebec City.
Will the Train de l'Ouest and the Cavendish Boulevard extension be priorities for the new PQ government?
Clifford Lincoln heads a lobby group for the West Island train project. He is confident the project will keep rolling ahead, but he wants to meet with the future new transport minister for assurance.
"Hopefully once the cabinet has been appointed between now and the next few weeks, I'm hoping he or she will have time to meet with us."
Meanwhile, the announcement for the long-awaited Cavendish extension came about a month ago, Kathleen Weil is the MNA for NDG and the outgoing Immigration Minister. She was part of a group of ministers who announced the government's commitment to the project. She hopes the PQ government will honour an agreement made between the city and the former Liberal government to prioritze this link, but it's going to take some work.
"Our intent is to continue to fight for this file," she says, "we laid the ground work, and will ask the new government to make sure the Cavendish-Cavendish link remains top of mind."
