The Caisse de dépôt is unhappy with Quebec's environment review board, saying the board’s review of the proposed light-rail project makes erroneous claims
Environmental review agency BAPE raised several red flags in a report released Friday, including the fact that key elements were missing.
In a statement, the Caisse said for one, the board failed to take into account 1,200 pages of documentation in its environmental assessment of the project.
The Caisse also repeated that the light-rail system would meet the needs of residents on the West Island, something the board questioned.
The 67-kilometre rail line would link downtown Montreal with the South Shore and the West Island, running through Trudeau airport, as well.
