The Verdun Borough Takes Time Out for Reflection Before Announcing Follow-up Actions on This Matter
VERDUN, QC, Oct. 26, 2011 /CNW Telbec/ - The Verdun Borough has taken note that the register held today
contains a sufficient number of signatures opposing the project to build a new elementary school
in the L'Île-des-Soeurs neighbourhood to now authorize a referendum.
Such a referendum would concern the zoning amendment planned to build this school on a small part of De la Fontaine park.
747 residents signed the register—479 more than the minimum required to proceed to the next step in such a case,
which would be to hold a referendum. A total of 2,677 residents living in areas adjacent to De la Fontaine park
were eligible to sign this register.
Claude Trudel, Mayor of the Verdun Borough
and responsible for public safety and security on Ville de Montréal's Executive Committee,
stated that he was taking the time to meet with his Council members before commenting on the results of the register
and announcing follow-up actions on this matter.

Rabbi Levi and Mushki Itkin recently moved from Brooklyn, N.Y., to establish the Chabad House just a few miles from downtown.
From there, they run a synagogue and community center with Torah classes, Shabbat meals, youth programs and holiday celebrations.
CHABAD NUNS’ ISLAND
Rabbi Levi Itkin and his wife, Chaya Mushka, a young couple from New York, have opened the first Chabad centre on Nuns’ Island.
They are offering weekly Torah classes at their home and organizing holiday events. Every Friday, they deliver challahs to Jewish homes and invite guests for Shabbat dinner.
The Jewish population of Nuns’ Island may be small, but Rabbi Itkin said it’s his mission to bring a sense of pride to Jews wherever they are.
He’s also extending his reach into Verdun and across the Champlain Bridge to Brossard. “I think there are more Jewish people in this area than people think.
They are just anonymous,” he said. Visit www.chabadnunsisland.com or call 762-1298
