PRESS RELEASE – Community mobilises for primary public school downtown, while Quebec government sits on its hands

For immediate release

Community mobilises for primary public school downtown, while Quebec government sits on its hands

“No School in Peter-McGill” discussion and youth digital art exhibit to take place on December 6.

Montreal, December 4, 2017406, this is the number of students in Peter-McGill that have to commute to neighbouring areas to go to school, some of whom must travel up to 2 hours per day to get there and back. 37, is the number of classes that need to be built in the neighbourhood by 2021 to respond to the needs of a growing demographic of school children, a number which does include factors of immigration. 3 is the number of applications submitted by the Comission Scolaire de Montréal (CSDM) in September for a public primary school downtown. We have the opportunity today to see the first francophone public primary school in western downtown on the former Montreal Children’s Hospital Site. The government already let this opportunity pass them by once before, when this invaluable public site was first sold to Luc Poirier without any terms or conditions to satisfy longstanding community needs. The delay for the Education Ministry to complete studies is usually around one year, but there is no time to wait when it comes to the Montreal Children’s Hospital site. Currently Devimco, the site’s developers, are pursuing plans to reorganise the site without taking a school into account. We are calling on those in power to take action now, so that the school can see the light of day.

Despite government inaction, concerned parents and residents of the neighbourhood will be meeting on Wednesday, December 6 to discuss next steps in making the school a reality. Thirteen youth will also be contributing to the exchange, by presenting animated GIFs that they made during a workshop in early November. Lead by Concordia Doctoral Arts Education candidate Marie-Pierre Labrie, the participants learned how to make digital art to express their feelings about the missing school, and their experiences with long commutes, issues of accessibility and belonging.

The discussion will be lead by the Peter-McGill Community Council as part of the Collective Impact Project launched this past May.

No School in Peter-McGill will take place on Wednesday, December 6th at Innovation Youth (1647 rue Ste. Catherine Ouest) from 5pm-7:30pm. The event is free and open to all with refreshments and childcare available on site.
