Montréal, August 6, 2020 – When we talk about universal accessibility in the Montréal metro, the discussion invariably focuses on the presence of elevators in the stations. But what is the point of having an elevator inside if, outside, it is impossible for an elderly or mobility-impaired person to open the door to the station entrance?
Montreal, August 11, 2020 – The murder of George Floyd by a Minneapolis policeman last May sparked a huge protest movement around the world, and a questioning of police intervention techniques. It is in this spirit that the elected members of Ensemble Montréal will be tabling a motion at the next City Council meeting asking that the officers of the Service de police de la Ville de Montréal (SPVM) cease all intervention techniques that could lead to strangulation, or even to the death of the person concerned.
Montreal, February 4, 2020 - One year after the Plante administration’s refusal to deploy body-worn cameras for SPVM officers, a coalition of elected municipal representatives and community groups is returning to the table to demand the rapid implementation of body cams in the police department to effectively combat racial profiling. Ensemble Montreal will table a motion to this effect at the next Municipal Council session.
