DORVAL – It’s officially spring and the green space known as the Dorval Golf Course may soon look very different.

“The residents on the streets here, along Thorncrest, received that noticed from the [Aéroports de Montréal] ADM a couple days ago telling them that they were going to start construction or working on the golf course,” said David Maloney, co-chair of Save our Green Space.

Lot 7, owned by the Montreal Airport authority, is slated to be turned into a new security checkpoint.

In the newsletter, the ADM writes that in order to meet Transport Canada’s requirements, work must begin as soon as possible.

The ADM has recently put up protective fencing to secure the work zone, and although some residents were expecting it, they said it was still a disappointment.

    “I felt sad because I’ve been here 30 years and it’s quite a nice nine-hole municipal golf course and everyone’s really friendly,” said Barbara Cunningham-Stokes.

    The notice also states that the ADM will begin cutting down trees on the lot in early April.

    Maloney insisted if that happens, they’ll try to stop them.

    “We are attempting to get a temporary injunction to prevent that and the city is helping us out with that, until a permanent injunction is heard,” he said.

    But the long battle may be starting to wear on some residents.

    “I felt sad about it, but I do know we have to move on,” said Stokes.

    “It’s not our land, it belongs to ADM.”

    Maloney said both the committee and the city are not ready to give up just yet.

    “When you’re up against people who literally have an infinite supply of money, it’s pretty hard when you’re a small organization like ours to stop them,” he said.

    “But maybe the environmental component that is so important about this will be heard.”
