    Citizen groups denounce the inconsistency of the government who will be consulting, full-time Festivities, on the way to a better view in the cities.

    With the adoption of law 122, the cities will be able to abolish referendums on the regulations of town planning condition to have a public consultation policy clear.

    However, now the government is inviting groups interested in the regulation that governs the development of this policy to share their comments… here on the 29th of December.

    “The government should be coherent with itself. If he wants to adopt a draft regulation on the public participation, he would need to put the conditions that promote the participation in public ! ” launches at the end of the wire, the representative of the Grouping of neighbourhood councils in Quebec, Johanne Elsener.

    It stresses that it is very difficult for neighbourhood councils to work together, to reach a consensus on the issue, draw up proposals and submit them to the government in so little time. “There is no urgency to approve this settlement between Christmas and new Year’s day. It’s been decades that cities consult and this is not a month that’s going to cause a major problem. “

    “Sham “

    For the former mp bloquiste Paul Ridge, who is now the chairman of the executive of the Parti québécois in Jean-Lesage and citizen of Limoilou, a member of a neighborhood council, it is neither more nor less than a ” sham consultation “.

    According to him, it is necessary that the minister of municipal Affairs, Martin Coiteux, grants more time to the different groups. Otherwise, he said, the policy consultation could be vulnerable to legal challenges.
