Update on Primary Schools in Peter-McGill

On June 27th, we sent a letter to the Education Ministry expressing our concern regarding building a school on the Grey Nun’s site. Building a school would remove a potential green space from our district. We find this particularly troubling as and there are other sites available, such as the Grand Séminaire, which would be more suitable for a school. Unfortunately, we have not yet received a response to this letter. With the upcoming provincial elections, we have reason to believe that there will be no movement on this issue before the fall without significant pressure from the public. We would encourage you, as concerned citizens, to write to journalists about the issue, as well as ask questions to your electoral candidates in the fall to find out their opinion on the subject.

For more information, please refer to our announcement from this past June.
