Beautiful downtown Rutherford park to close?

One of Montreal's nicest downtown parks, Rutherford Park above McGill University, is to be closed because paranoid security bureaucrats decided it was too risky to let citizens use green space above the water reservoir. The specific reason was, you know, 9/11.

Call the mayor's office, at or email at 514 872-3101 or email at

Helen Fotopolis is the elected representative responsible for Mont Royal, and you can telephone her at 514 872-9530 or email her at

Lastly, the organization Les amis de la montagne is supposed to tirelessly work to protect Mont Royal, you might let them know what you think abut this.
