Help protect the falaise St. Jacques by signing online petition

Sauvons la falaise! is a groupsauvons la falaise of Montreal citizens who want to protect the falaise from being disturbed by the Turcot construction work. You can sign the petition here.

The falaise St. Jacques is located just south of St. Jacques boulevard stretching 4 kilometers from the Montreal West Interchange to Decarie. It is one of 10 supposedly protected ecoterritories on the Island of Montreal. It is vital for three reasons:

  1. It is an important bird migration route.
  2. It is central to any greenbelt (ceinture vert) which could be created on the Island.
  3. It stops erosion and keeps St. Jacques Street at the top of the escarpment (rather than the bottom).
