A teacher, a dedicated and engaged citizen and an activist, Marie-Claude is, above all, a mother. And a mother who worries about the future of her children. Feeling the urgency of the climate crisis a little more each day has pushed her to get involved in active politics. Above all, Marie-Claude wants to make the citizens of the borough aware of the urgency of going green and building community capacity for change.
Marie-Claude is ready to roll up her sleeves. She is particularly eager to continue advancing key issues related to urban agriculture, support and development of local businesses, responsible waste management, sustainable mobility, access to housing and the fight against poverty.
With her experience as a teacher, this devoted, meticulous and creative woman is ready to represent Pointe-aux-Trembles, a neighbourhood she has lived in for 8 years and has worked in for 16 years.
It is in this neighbourhood, which she describes as peaceful and rich in green and blue spaces, that she chose to raise her family.
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.
