This week on MAtv’s CityLife: To high-rise or not to high-rise?

Host Richard Dagenais 

Montreal is experiencing a bit of a building boom. Dozens of major projects are going up across the city, many of them high-rise buildings. But some complain that there are too many glass towers. They want Montreal to take more control to make sure the city's character isn't changed forever. Host Richard Dagenais speaks to the experts about the boom, and how best to maintain a balance between development and preserving Montreal's unique look. Guests include: Jason Prince, Urban Planner; Robert Frank, Journalist; Anne Lagacé-Dowson, Political Commentator; Alex Kay, Real Estate Broker.

CityLife examines issues that affect all anglo Montrealers in an engaging and accessible way. Host Richard Dagenais and his team delve into politics, public transit, roadwork, the environment, the economy, immigration, social issues, culture and much more. Each CityLife show zeroes in on a particular subject or issue unfolding in Montréal, often with original approaches and creative coverage of local stories you may not find anywhere else.
