Saturday Photo: What the Champs des possibles Was Like Before CP Trashed It
But Canadian Pacific razed part of the area--what you see in the background of the photo--on Friday. An "accident," the railway says through spokespersons. But locals aren't so sure.
CP wanted to do some work on the rails, and so set out to put up new track. When called on it, the company apologized and promised to set things back to the way they were.
Lotsa luck. There were beehives and butterflies, insects and all manner of wild things in the little island of verdure. Given the fact that it's only been a few years since the area was set aside for non-development, it's quite amazing what has returned. Shame on CP: there's absolutely no reason for what they've done.
