It was either a smart investment or a waste of money to put lights on the JC Bridge for the Montreal’s 375th anniversary.

Was it a smart investment or a waste of money for Montreal to invest 40 million to install lights on the JC Bridge for Montreals 375th anniversary

I know that a lot of people feel that the money could have been better spent on the city’s infrastructure, but I don’t think that the problems of Montreal can be solved by isolated squirts of money

There is a need for a fundamental plan to address all of the infrastructure issues, and that can only be accomplished with a better funding model for the city.

The province needs to give some tax ground to the city so that there is a more predictable and stable revenue stream.

Ridiculous waste of money and the final nail in the coffin of the last mayor whose wasteful projects finally got him ejected from office.

If you have extra money, it can be spent without guilt or remorse.

If the $40M created many sustainable jobs, and this in turn injects money into the local economy, then one could argue that this is a good thing.

It could have been used to build better roads or speed up the wait times for health care services.
