Métro cars: the Government responds
Montréal, October 5, 2010 – The Board of Trade of Metropolitan Montreal is very pleased that the government responded to the business community’s urgent call to action concerning replacement of the city’s métro cars. “Now that the contract has been awarded, we can expect to see the new cars within two years, which is very good news,” said Board of Trade President and CEO Michel Leblanc.
“These are unusual circumstances and the government did what it had to do. The National Assembly now has to enact special legislation that should not delay the beginning of work. The saga of the métro car replacement will then finally come to an end,” added Mr. Leblanc.
