Sauvons L’anse-à-l’orme is a new action team that has banded together to stop a monster development project in Senneville, Saint-Anne-de-Bellevue and Pierrefonds-Roxboro.

The city of Montreal has announced its intention to develop 6,000 new housing units on 185 hectares of fallow agricultural land. This land is home to wide variety of terrestrial and aquatic wildlife, a large number of which are threatened or endangered, such as the Bobolink bird and the Boreal Geographical Turtle. Sauvons L’Anse-a-l’Orme believes that this green space should be protected in its entirety, as its wildlife would be devastated by the development.Through citizen action we can challenge and change political inertia. By following our page you will stay up-to-date on the latest news and events pertaining to this initiative.

Please write a letter, in your own words, to Mayor Denis Coderre and send a copy to Mr. Jim Beis, Mayor of Pierrefonds-Roxboro and to Mr. Russell Copeman, Ville de Montréal executive committee member for housing and urban planning.
