> Hello everyone,
> Let me relate you what I did for the first WCFD.
> I held a presentation at Chapters bookstore in Montreal on September 21st
> 7PM to present Joel's book "Carfree Cities" while simultaneously promoting
> the change towards carfree cities. I expected an audience of maybe 10 to
> people, but I got only about 6 people, and we ended up with only Dawson,
> friend Marc, I and the person in charge of the presentation. We sold a
> couple of copies of the book, so if other Canadians near Montreal want the
> book, well it's there at Chapters.
> I was hoping to form a special group to represent and defend walking and
> cycling in Quebec, especially in Montreal, while starting to make people
> aware that life is possible and better beyond car culture. I know it's
> difficult to do this in America than in Europe, but it should be easier to
> start something inside Montreal, than elsewhere in the province.
> Well, the ice is broken, and it should be any better for the next event.
> We are going to have more transit infrastructures into the city, meaning
> more transport, more people walking in the city, so less convenient for
> drivers. There is hope!
