Jean-Philippe Rochett, spokesman for the Society to Views-Port de Montreal, said: “My message is to respect health practices and site rules.
For an indefinite period, the system will close this department from midnight to 6 p.m. Shops and terraces will be closed from 11pm.
The decision brings together hundreds of major parties over the weekend. On Saturday, an 18-year-old woman was shot in the leg and a 19-year-old man was stabbed in an argument.
So the arrival of this curfew order will assure many traders, Mr. According to Rosett, many of them have already been shut down, especially at the time this local curfew order was applied.
This is especially the case at the Modavi restaurant where the kitchen closes at 10:30 pm on weekdays.
Jean-Philippe Rosette says business community leaders in the neighborhood must agree to the Society’s decision.
“Our security service is already available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. There will definitely be an increase in staff to carry out this operation,” he said. Says Rosett.
Patrolmen will patrol the streets and park at the entrances to ensure that all citizens are evacuated from the area.
It must have a consistent collaboration with the Service de Police de la Ville de Montreal (SPVM).
“In general, yes, there is a connection between the old port and the 21 neighboring station,” spokeswoman Julian Bergeron commented briefly.
The reduction in traffic in the evening may be similar to relief for some.
“It’s more intrusive. The streets are full, quiet cars are running, people are screaming,” laments Christine Coron, president of the Association of Residents du Viex-Montreal.
He also believes that closing the site will prevent further violence.
