Programmation de la semaine

There are a lot of big new building projects helping to revitalize the western end of downtown. While many welcome the new investment, there are also some worries that public services are being left forgotten. Plus we ask if governments should pay for sound barriers alongside highways, or if the people living there should shoulder the cost. And we find out about a cooperative that helps people brew their own beer.

The Pioneer has been a big part of Pointe Claire Village for decades. But now the bar has been sold and a developer plans to replace it with condos. But that plan is running into opposition from some in the town who say that the building should be preserved. We bring you the story of the Pioneer, and our panel discusses just when a building should be declared a 'heritage' property and when governments should step in and spend money to save them.

For the first time in decades a Quebec election doesn't centre around separation. That has pushed other issues into the spotlight, including healthcare, jobs and identity politics. But what are anglophones concerned about? We went into the community to ask you what you want from the province. Then we took your questions to candidates representing all four of the leading political parties.
