AMT suing STM for $1.5 million

A report suggests the AMT, the agency responsible for Montreal's commuter train network, is suing Montreal's transit company, the STM, for $1.47 million, for its share of operating costs dating back to 2011.

For its part, the STM says it's ready to pay its fair share, but that there was a delay in providing it with the necessary documents and it needs time to examine them.

News of the suit brought about a negative reaction from some opposition politicians at city hall.

Richard Bergeron, the Projet Montréal opposition leader, says the suit is absurd.

"It perfectly illustrates the problems the public transit network has with governance," Bergeron says. "The only people who will win in this will be the lawyers."
