MONTREAL’S MAIN STREETS: BIG PICTURE OR PIXELATED URBANISM?

City Talks

Emerging from the pathways and trails of the 17th and 18th centuries, the major roads that criss-cross Greater Montreal have defined the city’s development and transport. Notre-Dame, Sherbrooke, Saint-Laurent, Sainte-Catherine: the thoroughfares that once linked villages have today become segmented. Are these main streets approached from a big picture perspective? Is there a way for the region’s decision-makers to rally around a common vision?

Speakers:
Joël Thibert, Coordinator, Walk the Region
Talia Dorsey, Founding Principal, The Commons Inc.
Karl Dorais Kinkaid, Urban planner and President of L’Enclume cooperative
