Daphney Colin is a lawyer by profession, specializing in criminal law. She has held several positions within the municipal administration of Montreal, where she has acted as a support staff to elected officials on the executive committee and in the boroughs, working in particular on issues related to public safety and borough cooperation, including snow removal. She is therefore more than familiar with the issues affecting the city and its citizens. In the course of her work, she has had the opportunity to collaborate with organizations and key players in the community, which has made it possible for her to better identify the distinct needs of the two neighbourhoods, RDP and PAT. And it is with their collaboration that she hopes to address the various issues facing the borough. She believes that a concerted effort between community, private and public organizations is necessary to counter the feelings of insecurity caused by recent violent events.
Daphney dreams of a green city, on a human scale, with more effective public transportation and where residents feel involved and want to participate in its development.
She has lived in the borough for nearly 35 years and has been at the forefront of its evolution. A mother and committed citizen, she wants to see her neighbourhood flourish and improve the quality of life of its citizens. RDP-PAT has the wind in its sails and Daphney is convinced that she is on the right team to carry out projects that will benefit our families.
The Projet Montréal team in Rivière-des-Prairies-Pointe-aux-Trembles stands out for its expertise, dynamism and willingness to make things happen for the borough!
Lisa Christensen was a pioneer for Projet Montréal in the borough when she was elected councillor in Pointe-aux-Prairies in 2017. She was joined by Caroline Bourgeois as mayor in a 2018 by-election. Together, they have made tremendous positive changes for the quality of life in the borough.
With a desire to continue and accelerate their excellent work, Projet Montréal presents a strong, community-based team rooted in each of the districts: Henri-Robert Durandisse and Joseph Paglia in Rivière-des-Prairies, Daphney Colin and Lisa Christensen in Pointe-aux-Prairies, Marie-Claude Baril and Virginie Journeau in Pointe-aux-Trembles.
Making living environments safer, continuing efforts to add vegetation and protect green spaces, and developing mobility hubs are the priorities for the years to come.
