The City published a press release stating that the cost of the Noise Barrier is now evaluated to 46 Millions $, from 20 Millions $ in 2010. These look like big numbers. In reality, the city has a 25%-75% proposal from the MTQ. The burden on the city goes down to 10 Millions$
The mayor makes this statement without showing the report. And he doesn’t talk about fighting to reduce the city’s invoice, following this raise. He wants to on a referendum without a fight.
Where is the fiery attitude today ? The mayor should be fighting to protect one third of his population which is aggressed daily by the noise. Instead of that, he lowers his head, burns money fighting with his citizens, trying to hide behind a referendum to kill the project.
