MONTREAL, Que. — A coalition of social groups representing senior citizens, children and the disabled, have attacked a plan to allow right turns on red lights in Quebec.
Currently, Quebec is the only province in Canada that doesn’t allow right-hand turns at red lights. However, that is slated to change next June, in every region of the province except Montreal.
Cabinet has yet to give final approval to the plan, and activists are trying their best to dissuade the government from proceeding with the plan.
The coalition says that more pedestrians will be killed if the changes proceed. They also argue that enough Quebec drivers don’t stop at red lights as is, and that will get worse if the law is changed to allow right-hand turns.
