Public meeting about the future of Hôtel Dieu is a big success
May 20, 2016.
There were close to 400 people at last night's public meeting concerning the future of Hôtel Dieu hospital.
A broad coalition of community organizations have been working for 3 years on a plan to develop the site. That coalition now has concrete plans and has met with the Minister of Health, the Mayor, and representatives from the Minister Responsible for the Métropole. Plans are afoot to meet with representatives of the federal government and other relevant agencies.
A petition calling on Quebec Premier Philippe Couillard was signed by hundreds present. Speakers called on those present to participate in large numbers in the public hearings on Hôtel Dieu.
