Times of India reports

“When RMZ Millennium Park in Chennai was categorised as a LEED gold building by the Hyderabad-based Indian Green Building Council (IGBC)
in September this year, the tally of certified green buildings in the city went up to nine.

Quebec transport planners hold on to their love of cars – The Gazette

“Montreal was designed around the car in the 20th century. In the new millennium, Mayor Gérald Tremblay’s administration has contradicted its own green rhetoric by faithfully following the past century’s ways – so far, at least. But that could change.

The Tremblay administration last week urged Quebec’s transport ministry, which is in charge of the $1.5-billion rebuilding project, to rethink its approach.”
