like to thank the residents of Cote Saint-Luc District Four for their
support and for placing their confidence in me once again. I also would
like to thank all the volunteers that helped me with my campaign. It
has been a pleasure to serve the citizens of Cote Saint-Luc over the
last four years. I look forward to four more years and hope to continue
working to make Cote Saint-Luc the best place to live not only on the
Island of Montreal, but in Quebec and all of Canada.

District 4, my focus in the past was on the logistics of the major renovations
that took place at Fletcher Park. In September 2009, renovations began
costing over $500,000 to make the park more user-friendly. We also saw
the return of the skating rink boards at Richard Schwartz Park. To read

we’ve now implemented recycling in 100% of all high-rises in Côte
Saint-Luc. With the recent adoption of a new
by-law, all high-rise buildings in Côte Saint-Luc must offer
recycling to their residents, and offer a minimum number of recycling
bins. The new by-law also makes it mandatory to put recyclables in the
blue bin and organic waste in the brown bin or in compostable bags for
residents of single-family homes or duplexes.
June 2009, all homes received a new
rolling blue bin. By participating fully in the Brown Bin and new
Blue Bin programs, we hope to be the first city on the Island to achieve
the provincial government's target of diverting 60% of our waste from
landfill. You will also be receiving a reminder card indicating what
is and isn't recyclable.
surpassed our goal of 1000 MT of organic waste in the first year of
full implementation with all single-family homes and duplexes. So far,
we have more than 12 times the tonnage from last year compared to only
10 times the number of homes. Overall, we have almost doubled the diversion
rate from the first half of 2008 to the same period in 2009. We hope
to continue to see improvements in these statistics in the coming months
and years when we see the effects of the new large blue rolling bins.
