HELLO SUPPORTERS AND FRIENDS & WELCOME NEW MEMBERS!
Sauvons l’Anse-à-l’Orme needs you!
Our Mayors and politicians are repeatedly hearing that the proposed housing development in Pierrefonds and Ste-Anne-de-Bellevue is not wanted by the citizens. This beautiful natural area must be protected and preserved for all Montrealers to enjoy. We need to continue the pressure until we convince them that the only option is to protect 100% of the l’Anse-à-l’Orme corridor. Below are some ways you can help.
We, the undersigned, request that the City of Montreal and the borough of Pierrefonds-Roxboro conserve and protect the total area of Rivière à l’Orme Ecoforest Corridor where a proposed residential development to build 6,000 housing units could destroy 185 hectares of natural spaces.
Our natural ecosystems are very important; they allow us to adapt to the negative impacts caused by climate change. Natural areas in proximity to urban centers play a very important role as buffer zones and deserve to be preserved.
Their ecosystems provide many benefits, they prevent local flooding, filter air and water, promote pollination, provide erosion control, climate regulation, supply water and provide recreation areas and tourism services. This development will destroy the ecosystem and its local and unique biodiversity. It will have a negative effect in the quality of life of citizens by bringing more than 10,000 cars and would increase property taxes for all Borough residents who will pay for the construction of this residential development in a non-serviced area.
