Public transit, Rural communities, Statements by Members

Communautés rurales, Déclarations de députés, Transport en commun

Mr. Speaker, the mayor of Mont-Tremblant, Luc Brisebois, just announced that, as of June 21, the local bus service will be free for everyone all the time. This measure benefits everyone: workers, employers, students, families, seniors, and even tourists.

This will help cut greenhouse gas emissions. It is a measure that shows that economic development and environmental protection can and must go hand in hand. Everything we do, individually as well as collectively, has a significant impact on the fight against climate change. Public transit is one of the best ways to help the environment.

The town of Mont-Tremblant is at the leading edge of rural public transit. By offering it for free, they are sending an even stronger message about what we can do for the future when we are bold enough to fight for it.

To the leaders of Mont-Tremblant and all the current and future bus riders, I say bravo and thank you.

Monsieur le Président, le maire de la Ville de Mont-Tremblant, Luc Brisebois, vient d’annoncer qu’à compter du 21 juin le service d’autobus sera accessible gratuitement pour tous et en tout temps. C’est une mesure qui rejoint tout le monde: les travailleurs, les employeurs, les étudiants, les familles, les personnes âgées et même les touristes.

Cette mesure permettra la réduction des gaz à effet de serre. C’est une mesure qui démontre qu’on peut et qu’on doit combiner le développement économique et la protection environnementale. Chaque geste que nous posons, seuls ou collectivement, a une incidence capitale dans la lutte contre les changements climatiques. Le transport en commun est l’une des meilleures manières d’agir pour l’environnement.

La Ville de Mont-Tremblant est à l’avant-garde des services de transport en commun en milieu rural. En l’offrant gratuitement, on lance un message encore plus fort sur ce qu’on est capable de faire pour l'avenir, quand on ose agir pour l'avenir.

Aux dirigeants de Mont-Tremblant et à tous les usagers d’autobus actuels et futurs, je dis bravo et merci!
