Blue Collar Park survey results


The MCK would like to inform the Community of the survey results for the Town Garage/Blue Collar Park move.

In total, 269 people took part in the survey. 162 of those took part in-person at the Kahnawà:ke Services Complex and Kahnawà:ke Post Office over four (4) days in January 2020. The remainder took the survey online, which was also available for 4 days.

Both surveys were very close in terms of results and thus, the overall numbers were combined. Overall, 81% expressed support for the move (78.5% of online participants. 83.5% in person were either ‘Strongly’ or ‘Somewhat in Favor’), with equal proportions of participants citing safety, location and Community need as their reason.

170 of the 269 left additional comments. Those and all Social Media comments have been forwarded to the MCK’s Capital and Public Works Units as well as the Office of the Council of Chiefs.

Many expressed concerns over the safety for the children who get on the bus at the Garage and bus drivers have been consulted to come up with a solution to that, should the new Blue-Collar Park be constructed on Route 132.

The MCK had first consulted directly with those who live closest to the Town Garage and then announced the potential move in June 2019.

“We’d like to thank the many people who participated,” said Ratsénhaienhs Lindsay LeBorgne, who is the lead on the Infrastructure, Transport & Operations Portfolio. “Even in a non-political matter like a new Town Garage, people appreciate the opportunity to express their opinions.”
