Jason Mossa of the Green Party is tabling a number of including improving public transportation in the region and opening a CLSC in Pincourt on the island of Île-Perrot.
Jason Mossa, the Vaudreuil riding Green Party candidate, is determined to push ahead on the hospital dossier, educational system, Highway 20, and the entire transportation system. “There’s a lack of movement on important files in our region,” Mossa told The Journal during an interview on September 25.
An important element in reducing traffic on the region’s highways is having an adequate public transportation system. “It’s not only about reducing traffic,” said Mossa. “It’s also about how we’re going to improve our bus and rail infrastructure to deal with our problems.”
Improving medical accessibility
Mossa proposes improving medical services while the region waits for the completion of its new hospital. “It’s a big project and we have to follow all the steps that must be put into place. We don’t want to rush things but we’d love to have it open before 2026. What we propose is to offer more services 24/7 from our CLSCs,” said Mossa.
“We also want to establish a CLSC on Île-Perrot. The population warrants it. Traffic circulation would improve. People have to go to Vaudreuil-Dorion to receive services. Our population is still growing. We have to think ahead,” he added.
More families moving into Vaudreuil means more children and the region needs more schools to accommodate the increase. “The Commission scolaire des Trois-Lac has requested two new primary schools and one professional education centre. This is a priority as well,” he said.
A real estate broker by profession, Mossa is also the director of the Quebec Rabbit Association, an educational platform geared to raise awareness about domestic rabbits. He is also involved with other animal protection groups and proposes an ambitious, progressive animal rights program that represents the concerns of all Quebecers.
