Saturday Photo: Say No to Fees at the Jardin botanique

Once upon a time you could get into Montreal's Jardin botanique for nothing, anytime.  Then fees were added for the greenhouses, and for non-Montrealers who wanted to visit the outside gardens.

Until this year, residents of the city had the option of buying a $8 Accès Montréal card which gave free entry to the outside gardens, as well as reduced rates at municipal pools and other resources.

But this summer, because some fancy floral show will be on, everybody is going to have to pay, and pay a lot--$18.75 for card holders, even more for those who don't. 

This policy is starting to be criticized and with any lucky municipal officials will change their minds. Check out the Facebook page designed to register you disaccord with the idea.
