Whereas the Federal Bridge Authority has indicated that the four Cement (Bridge) Pillars in the River will not be taken out of the River; and
Whereas at the last Waterfront meeting, there was consensus that the bridge pillars should all be removed save and except the one conceptually shown in the Centretown Streetscape Design Plan on the north bank of the River; and
Whereas the Waterfront Committee recommends that Council does whatever it can to have the pillars removed out of the River, as per the Harmonized Environmental Assessment signed by all parties involved.
Now therefore be it resolved that Council send a letter through the Mayor's office to the Federal Bridge Corporation requesting that these pillars be removed as per the Agreement; and
Now therefore be it further resolved that a copy of this motion be sent to the Mohawk Council of Akwesasne (MCA) for its support and our MP, Guy Lauzon, requesting his assistance.
