Save Cafe Cleos!

Monday, September 21st, 2009

Important Repost from Dead Dolls:
“Last week the Executive Committee passed a motion to continue expropriating businesses on St. Laurent Blvd. south of Ste. Catherine St., despite the city’s Office of Public Consultations concluding that the current plan was too rushed and should be put back on the drawing board.
Monday, September 21, the municipal council will put last week’s motion to a vote. With an election just over a month away, we can show the councillors that despite the last-minute nature of this motion, we’re watching their vote on it.
A “yes” vote would give the developer 5 years to develop a new “revitalization project” for that block. But by starting with the expropriation of all remaining businesses, the Mayor is making it clear he doesn’t want Café Cléopatra, Montreal Poolroom or Main Exportations to be part of a revitalization of the area they’ve served for nearly 100 years.
This part of the Quartier des Spectacles project has already displaced numerous concert venues, nightclubs and bars– on Monday, we can say NO MORE EXPROPRIATION or buyout until the developer takes the time necessary to develop a new plan with real input from affected citizens and local businesses.
This is a PUBLIC project in the historic heart of our city and should be carried out with an appropriate level of public input and accountability.”
