At the Capitol, the awnings of discord

The ribbon shadows of the Alsatian avenue and the Capitol and the plan to “revive the city” is a simple operation of “contact”, attacked the opposition on Friday in the municipal council of Toulouse.

“The city has acquired Christmas decorations that were in the boxes of a Portuguese company. Maxime Le Texier does not appreciate the ribbon shades installed these days on an Alsatian avenue and soon to be installed on a part of the Place du Capitole. An operation that the town hall bought from the designer group Impactplan. According to the opposition member Elected by the “Insomies Citizens” group, this is considered a “failure” that is not compatible with an “ambitious climate plan”, if the trees “that will die” are added to the pot.

For Antoine Maurice (EELV, a group of environmentalists), the plan to “revive the city” is at best a “communication”. “Trees in pots are ineffective. They don’t respect the charter of the tree.” To these measures, the elected official opposes “creating open spaces wherever possible.”

Above all, far from the shadow houses, the mayor – the candidate to succeed him – defended his greening policy, a topic that could be one of the strong ones in the next municipal elections. “You denigrate what we do for the environment without appeal. But when some were in charge, they did almost nothing about it,” he said, even digging up “dark Chinese cobblestones” on an Alsatian boulevard and “plundering the trees of Place de Gaulle.” “. “I understand your guilt. I expect your extreme speech will not falter. But in the end, it is the judgment of the people of Toulouse that counts and they see that we are striving, ”says Jean-Luc Modinc who is already making an assessment.
