Ça bouge dans l’parc !

Cet été il y a eut beaucoup de travaux dans le parc Frédéric-Back et j’imagine qu’il y en aura encore beaucoup cet automne. Je suppose que les firmes d’aménagements travaillent fort pour essayer de rattraper le retard acquis durant les mois de confinement du COVID-19. Les travaux de la phase d’aménagement actuelle doivent être complétés à l’automne, donc j’imagine qu’un nouveau secteur ouvrira sans doute avant l’hiver ou sinon, si le retard n’est pas complètement rattrapé, au printemps. J’ai bien hâte de voir un nouveau secteur et d’y faire de la randonnée. Toutefois, certains secteurs, déjà  prêts, ont ouvert durant l’été. Voici quelques images pour en témoigner…

CESM-plan_d_ensemble

Le parc tel qu’il sera lorsque complété (en 2026!)

D’abord, quelques commentaires négatifs pour se débarrasser des choses désagréables en premier. Je déplore le manque de communication de la ville qui ne tient pas les citoyens au courant du progrès et des échéanciers des travaux. Ce ne serait pas très difficile d’avoir une site ou un blogue, même une page Facebook, qui suivrait de semaine en semaine l’évolution des travaux, illustrée par plusieurs photographies. On a fini tel sentier, on a planté tel type d’arbres, etc. Un plan qui décrit qu’est-ce qui a été planté où, les essences d’arbres, les espèces de buissons et de fleurs, serait aussi très utile. Mais, bon, trois ans après avoir ouvert les premiers secteurs du parc, ils ne sont même pas capable d’afficher le nom du ou des artistes qui ont créé les différentes oeuvres d’art réparties dans le parc, alors faire une site pour tenir les citoyens au courant des travaux, cela semble bien au-delà de leur capacité… Il n’y a qu’un site d’information qui explique un peu où est le parc, sa vocation, quelles sont les activités que l’on peut y faire, et quelques mots sur l’aménagement mais qui n’a pas été mis à jour depuis longtemps. C’est tout.

Autre problème: la ville “incite” les citoyens à enlever les espèces nuisibles comme l’herbe à poux de leur propriété, à grand coup de menaces et d’amendes, mais n’est même pas capable d’en faire autant dans ses parcs ! Le parc est littéralement infesté d’herbes à poux. Trop probablement pour que les équipes d’aménagement puissent tout arracher à la main. C’est sans doute pourquoi ils ont eut recourt à la pulvérisation d’herbicide sur les secteurs envahit pas de nombreux plants d’herbe à poux. Comme l’an dernier, ça a été fait discrètement, sans rien dire à personne. Seul en témoigne les larges bandes de végétation brûlées où l’herbe à poux poussait. Malheureusement cela n’affecte pas seulement l’herbe à poux mais toute la végétation qui entourait la zone traitée, dont les tournesols. Et rien n’est dit sur la nature du produit utilisé. Est-ce toxique? Peut-on laisser nos enfants ou nos animaux domestiques jouer en toute sécurité dans la zone traitée? Pourtant, je crois, l’usage d’herbicide est interdit à la ville. Encore un cas de “faites ce que je dit, pas ce que je fait”?

[iPhone 11 Pro, Parc Frédéric-Back, 2020/08/15, 8/27-28]

Lors de l’inauguration du parc en août 2017 (voir mon album photo sur Flickr) il n’y avait que quatre secteurs du parc qui étaient ouvert au public: les secteurs Papineau Nord et Sud, le secteur Boisé Est et le secteur secteur Iberville Sud. Selon la planification originale, trois nouveaux secteurs devaient ouvrir au printemps 2019: Plaine Est, Jarry Est et Iberville Nord. Cependant, ce ne fut pas le cas: un changement d’administration et des retards dans les travaux ont amené une modification de la planification et de l’échéancier. Ce n’est qu’après une visite au centre d’accueil de La Tohu au printemps et la réception d’une lettre circulaire déposée dans ma boîte à malle à l’automne 2019 que j’ai eut une idée des nouveaux échéanciers — et encore, avec d’inévitables délais et le confinement de la COVID-19, il y a de nouveaux retards.  Initialement les travaux devaient prendre fin en novembre 2020 pour Iberville Nord et Boisé Sud / Jarry Est et au printemps 2021 pour Plaines Est. Pour l’instant, avec beaucoup d’effort, il semble que l’échéancier est plus ou moins tenu et ces secteurs pourraient ouvrir au public avant l’hiver ou au printemps prochain…

Status report (early July)

The life in the time of the coronavirus continues… 

This is my fifth status report since the beginning of the coronavirus pandemic (the other four were in March, mid-April, the end of April, and in mid-May). It has now been fifteen weeks (or one-hundred and seven days) since it has all begun. It has been forty days since the beginning of the slow re-opening and my return to work (thirteen days since we’ve restart taking the public in the library for a limited offer of service). 

On the domestic side of life, I can say that I feel I have not been doing much in the last month and half… I didn’t do much around the house (it was either too hot or raining). As usual, I probably watch too much television: like rewatching the Ghost in the Shell: Arise series and several movies (also, to fill the time, I started watching again the 2004 series of Battlestar Galactica). However, I have been reading enough to catch up on my tsundoku… (hurray!) and write a little about my readings (dBD #141, La sphère d’Or, Unbeaten tracks in Japan, I’ll never tell, De Gir à Moebius, and several other French comics that I covered in the article “Sherlock Holmes en bande dessinée (2)”).

Weather — The temperature was unusually warm lately (above average) and often quite dry. So much so that the vegetation in the parc often took a yellowish colour. Thankfully, it rained periodically enough to keep everything alive. In the last week or so it has been quite hot and humid. Enough to discourage any sustained outside activities, although we still take our daily walk.

Health — With the confinement (probably because of slightly bigger meal and less activity) I have gained weight. My blood pressure and glucose are also higher (maybe because of an increased stress?). I have also experienced digestive problems, my usual recurring pain at the end of the digestive track as well as some chest and shoulder pain (probably muscular). Overall, I feel in good shape but it could be better. Unfortunately, I know that with age nothing gets better…

Work — All is fine at work. My usual library being still closed for renovation I was assignment to another one. This new place is at a nice location (at walk/bike distance from home) and has a nice team (although, since the people of my library working there are in extra, we perform mostly boring jobs). However, there was one painful incident: a customer refused the answer the covid “questions” and to sanitize his hands upon entrance. As I was insisting (to follow protocol), he became increasingly disagreeable, up to implying that I was doing so because of my ego or because I was racist. I was just trying to do my job. I was putting my health at risk (and the health of my family) in order to give him access to the library and he has shown absolutely no appreciation or gratitude for it. All I ask is some respect. If I was hurt by being called a racist (and I will come back on this subject) what really pissed me off was that my colleagues didn’t show much support when I tried to explain that he refused to follow protocol and insulted me. I don’t know, maybe they just didn’t understand me well: it is hard to express yourself calmly when it’s hot and your are talking through a mask and a face-shield. What happened to “we must absolutely ask ALL the covid questions and not let anyone in that doesn’t answer properly”? And then they told me “you know, we get insulted all the time. You have to get used to it” implying that I was weak to let it get to me. We are supposed to have a policy of not tolerating any disrespect and bullying (no respect, no service) and, yet in the end, that man received the service he came for. If you are tolerating such disrespect OF COURSE people will feel empowered and continue with the same behaviour. It is the wrong attitude. Anyway, that incident bothered me for weeks as I kept thinking about it…

One thing that I spent a lot of time on lately, was shopping for a nice electric bike or scooter. In this epidemic, I want to avoid public transportation (bus & subway) and if my work place for now is at a walking or biking distance, it is quite tiring in the summer heat (and I am closer to sixty than fifty years-old after all). I rented one for a week and I liked it a lot, but when I wanted to purchase one not a single store in the metropolitan area had any in stock. I guess everybody had the same idea at the same time and I was too late. An electric BIKE looks cool (particularly the Banana Boss, the Rad Runner 1, the Maxie Large, or the Paris) but it is quite expensive and a standard bicycle seat is really hard on my backside. Strangely, a scooter is less expensive, as well as being much more confortable and versatile. I’ve been checking several nice models (Écolo, Tao Aquarius, Vienna, Gio Italia, Mignon, UQi Pro, etc.) but now I found a good store and I am just waiting for them to receive some stock later this month…

Many important events happened in the second quarter of 2020 ( the end of May, June and the beginning of July) but I don’t want to spend much time on those current events. However, the world stage was dominated by the three great plagues of the era. First, the coronavirus. So far, the world has suffered over 10 million cases of infection resulting in over half a million deaths! We dealt relatively well with it in Canada, but the U.S. in on the verge of total catastrophe as it reopened too soon and they are now seeing an horrible surge in infection (over fifty-thousand new cases each day!). 

The second plague is Trump. I would think that we would get used to it by now but his mishandling of the coronavirus response (no national coordination, not enough test and PPE, not urging confinement, distanciation, and wearing masks, etc.), his constant lying, and his rhetoric encouraging hate-speech and inciting to violence kept making everything worse. Sometimes, I think he just doing it on purpose. If he is not a Putin agent, he is certainly an agent of chaos. He loves it. I can’t wait until November… 

The final plague is racism. Following the death by police abuse of George Floyd and many other subsequent similar baffling incidents, the American urban areas erupted in spontaneous protests against this pervasive institutional racism that literally plagues the U.S. How did we moved from a pandemic to riots in the streets? (Without much social distancing hence the cases surge) We all hoped that it was getting better but I guess we got negligent — the coronavirus confinement and Trump inducement somehow seem to have put salt on the wound — as it now seems worse than ever. It must be dealt with once and for all. With police reform certainly (defunding, demilitarizing, new structure, call it what you want — I always thought we should have several level of policing: the unarmed street or biking cop, the patrol police answering to theft and hold-up, the inspector, the riot police and now we should have a force of psycho-social worker for domestic violence, teenage trouble, neighbour disputes, etc.), but the disease goes further than that. Social reform and massive investments to reduce inequality (in education, in job opening, in housing, etc.) are necessary. With the recent movements like Me-Too and Black Lifes Matter, I feel that the world is effervescent and on the verge of great changes, just like in ’68. However, we will have to be patient. Real change takes time. But now the seed of change, the idea that it is possible, has been planted in people’s minds. It only remains to take care of it and watch it germinate… But the first step toward that change is for American to go vote in November.

Racism has always bothered me. All my life I tried to treat everybody equally, not letting their opinion, behaviour, the size of their nose, the colour of their eyes, hair or skin (pink, brown, “black”, “red” or “yellow”) distract me from the fact that we were all the same. Human beings. I always tried to be tolerant (sometime failing: for a while I became quite intolerant toward religion, but now the only thing I can’t tolerate is intolerance — and stupidity). When I was a teenager I thought that the best way to solve racism was to intermarry and eventually we would all become of the same skin colour (that’s what I did, unfortunately I never had kids — too much trouble!). However, skin colour is just an excuse for racists: in fact they are just afraid of the difference (people thinking, dressing, talking, etc., differently than they are). There are many culture on this world and, if we just learn about them, we see there is no reason to be afraid. We discover that this difference is beautiful, that it is a wealth. Those people usually are against (or ignorant of) science. Science is telling us that, genetically, we are all the same and that there is only one race: the human race. I always wanted to write about this complex and touchy subject (and someday I will). Unfortunately, whatever you say or write will always receive criticism: you didn’t say this, the way you say that is discriminatory, it is not enough, it is too much, etc., so I am waiting to have the right words. However, if you stay silent,  it is worse because they say that you are complicit, that you are encouraging racism by saying nothing. I prefer to show support by my actions: I won’t protest in the street but I’ll always try to be equitable, unbiased, and just. If I see someone being discriminated (racially or otherwise) I will try to defend them. And I’ll stay silent. If I scold you for doing something wrong (like misbehaving in the library or trying to cut the waiting line to enter the bus) and you answer be accusing me of being racist, I’ll stay silent. But just know that calling me a racist is the worst insult that you could give me…

I feel the end of this year will really be difficult… Take care of yourselves and stay safe !

Also, I found time to stay a little acquainted with the affairs of the world and gathered a few notable news & links — which I now share with you (in both french or english, slightly categorized, but in no particular order — note that, to save on coding time, the links will NOT open in a new window), after the jump.

J’emmerde Facebook

Sommet-des-dieux-animeLe 20 juin j’ai republié un message d’Animeland qui annonçait la bande-annonce d’un film d’animation adaptant un excellent manga d’un de mes auteurs préférés, Jiro Taniguchi. Le 26 juin j’ai reçu un message de Facebook qui disait “Your post goes against our Community Standards [on SPAM] so only you can see it.” J’ai donc contesté la décision et FB a fermé le dossier mais j’ignore toujours si mon billet original est toujours visible… alors je l’ai re-publié (mais il ne semble toujours pas visible!)…

 La bande-annonce en question (sur Vimeo)

Je suis outragé! Facebook trouve correct que Trump mente sur leur page, que Trump fasse de la désinformation et de la propagande haineuse, que Trump incite à la violence [WaPoNYT] mais je republie simplement un post qui parle d’une animation basé sur un beau manga de mon auteur préféré et c’est du SPAM ???? F**k you FB, je commence sérieusement à penser à te laisser tomber !

Ne vous gênez pas pour commenter et laisser FB savoir quelle petite merde ils sont!

F**k Facebook !

On June 20 I republished a message from Animeland announcing the trailer for an animated film adapting an excellent manga from one of my favorite authors, Jiro Taniguchi [same news on Anime News Network]. On June 26 I received a message from Facebook saying “Your post goes against our Community Standards [on SPAM] so only you can see it.” So I contested the decision and FB closed the file but I still don’t know if my original post is still visible … So I re-posted it (but I’m still not sure it is visible…) !

I am outraged ! Facebook finds it okay that Trump lies on their page, that Trump does disinformation and propaganda, that Trump uses hate-speech and incites to violence [WaPoNYT] but when I simply republish a post that talks about an animation based on a beautiful manga by my favorite author it is SPAM ???? F ** k you FB, I’m seriously starting to think about dumping you !

Please feel free to comment and tell FB how shitty they are !

 

How to keep customers (un)happy

Some companies (like Amazon) know how to keep their customers happy. If you order an item online, they tell you it will be delivered on Monday while you actually (sometimes) receive it on Friday. You are agreeably surprised and happy. Most of the time you get the item on time and you are still happy.

Meanwhile, other companies (like those shipping with Canada Post) don’t get it. When the item is shipped, the Canada Post tracking website tells you that it will be delivered Friday. But you don’t receive it and at night the website is updated and it tells you that it will be delivered Monday instead. That would already be bad because it is the reverse of the situation described above and you end up frustrated and unhappy.

However, on Monday you still don’t get the delivery and, at night, the website is updated, telling you that it will be delivered Tuesday instead. Of course, you still don’t received the parcel and at night the website is updated with new information telling you that it is out for delivery and that you will get it (really) Wednesday by the end of day…

I just wonder how long they can keep this up…

[ Traduire ]

Update (2020/01/08): This time it was indeed delivered — on Wednesday, January 8th, at 17h19. The mailman didn’t ring the door bell and just put the parcel in the mailbox. Although, he looked at it a few seconds and then took it out of the mailbox to put it in a frozen flower pot, on the ground, underneath the mailbox. I have no idea why. Go figure… But the fact that it was delivered late and just left on the ground made me mad as hell !

However, just to make my point (again), the same mailman came back eight minutes later and put another parcel in the mailbox. It contained two used comics (bande-dessinées) that I had ordered ten days ago through amazon.fr and that I was told would be delivered between January 10th and January 31st! Understandably, I was agreeably surprised and quite happy…

Damn you Apple !

Sad-Apple-Logo-FrownYou really don’t make things the way you used to.

I tried to install Catalina on my MacBook Pro but I got a message telling me there was not enough space and got stuck in a restart loop after that. I found some suggestions on how to resolve this on the web (apparently it is a common problem). I had to wipe my drive and re-install everything from the Time Machine backup. Then I erased some (backed-up) stuff and tried re-installing Catalina again. That took me an entire evening!

And that’s only the first computer… I also have an iMac to update.

Then I kept getting an alert message saying to “Update AppleID Settings” again and again despite me updating the said settings! I tried a few remedies found on the web (apparently I am not alone with that problem) but only turning iCloud off, restarting and resigning in, worked. (Same problem with the iMac!)

And that’s without saying that there’s now so much security and passwords that it’s hard to get anything done!

And with Catalina I am losing Microsoft Office (and a few other older utilities, mostly for video conversion) that were never updated to 64-bit. I will have to get used to LibreOffice

All in all, I wasted nearly two days with this installation… Very disappointed !

That’s all f***ing annoying !

At the same time I keep having wi-fi problems. Apparently I have too many devices using the wi-fi (about seventeen) and some of the Nest Cam don’t work most of the time. I also need to reset the Home Hub 3000 once in a while. I tried adding four of Bell wi-fi pods but it didn’t really improve anything… A tech at Bell suggested to also increase internet speed (strangely, at Bell, their solution is always to PAY MORE money). So I went from 300 to 500 Mbit/s but it didn’t change a thing. No improvement at all. Now I am considering going to 1 Gbit/s. We’ll see if it improves anything.

On the positive side, I am quite happy with my iPhone 11 Pro. I don’t use much the phone. For me it is mostly a universal internet device (like Star Trek’s tricorder) and an excellent camera. I am really satisfied with this new camera. If it wasn’t for the zoom I don’t think I would use my Nikon anymore… (yet again, the iPhone zoom pretty well but there is too much quality loss…)

Now that I made my civic duty and voted by anticipation in the Federal Elections, I can go back to solving computer problems (and hopefully, before the end of the day, be able to resume writing book comments — which is, after all, the main purpose of this blog !)…

TV Rant

What is it with this new trend? Many paying TV services like AMC Premiere, HBO Now (U.S. only), PBS Passport (U.S. only), etc., start appearing. Look, I am already paying for the damn channel and now you tell me I have to pay some more to get access to your back-catalog streaming, bonuses, extra, previews or advance screening ? Man, that’s harsh. That’s being greedy. That’s exploitation of the masses. I really effing hate you, TV.

And now a special word for PBS: I am already paying for your damn stations (three, in fact) with Bell Fibe TV. How come when I go to your website I cannot watch ANYTHING because “this video is not available in your region due to rights restrictions” ? And it’s the same damn thing for Passport ! Isn’t your call sign saying “Mountain Lake PBS : Plattsburg, Burlington, Montreal” ? I can even donate some money to your station. And yet I cannot use your website or the iPad app ? That’s nonsense! Just go to hell. I’ll donate money when I’ll be treated as a real customer and be able to use your online service!

Des nouvelles du parc

IMG_4529Après m’être promené dans le parc, je me suis demandé ce qu’il nous réservait comme surprise ce printemps. Je suis donc allé faire un tour au pavillon d’accueil du parc Frédéric-Back, à la Tohu, sur la rue des Régatiers. Ce n’est guère facile d’extraire de l’information de ces gens-là. Il n’y avait aucun dépliants et personnes ne semblaient savoir (ou vouloir donner) quoi que ce soit. On m’a référé à un écran tactile géant avec une carte inter-active du parc (qui n’est malheureusement pas disponible en ligne semble-t-il). 

J’y ai tout de même appris que l’échéancier que j’avais vu lors de l’ouverture de la section Boisé-Est en août 2017 (sous l’administration Coderre) avait été repoussé en partie (par l’administration Plante). Le reste de la section Est du parc (près du parc Champdoré et du Cirque du Soleil) devait ouvrir au printemps 2019, les sections de la Plaine et du Boisé à l’automne 2021 et les sections du Lac et des Terrasses à l’automne 2023 [c’est quoi cette idée d’ouvrir une section de parc à l’automne? C’est au printemps qu’il faut ouvrir, pour que les gens en profite tout l’été!]. Maintenant, il est plutôt question d’ouvrir les secteurs du boisé et des plaines (incluant le côté est, au sud du parc Champdoré) pour 2021, et d’ouvrir les secteurs du lac et des terrasses pour 2023. Je n’ai trouvé aucune mention du secteur sud (près de la Tohu et du Cirque du Soleil) mais comme il y est dit que le parc sera terminé en 2023, je suppose que ce secteur ouvrira aussi à ce moment.

Il existe beaucoup de différents sites internet sur le parc (le site de la ville, des Grands parcs (incluant les Legs du 375e), de tourisme Montréal et le site de la Tohu) mais finalement il y a peu de véritable information de disponible… Certains liens sont morts, l’information est parfois périmée et souvent on réfère au parc sous son ancien nom, le Complexe environnemental de Saint-Michel (CESM). Il me semble que ce serait la moindre des choses dans le cas d’un projet ambitieux comme ce parc de tenir les citoyens bien informé des échéanciers et des projets. La carte inter-active que j’ai vu à la Tohu devrait être disponible en ligne!

Quand j’ai décidé de devenir propriétaire dans ce quartier, la présence du parc a été un élément important dans ma décision. Hélas, depuis ce temps il n’a été source que de déceptions: la lenteur des aménagements, l’ouverture d’un premier secteur à l’automne 2017 et non au printemps, la beauté de l’aménagement floral (les rudbeckia!) de la première année qui ne s’est pas répété par la suite, le manque d’entretient des sentiers l’hiver dernier (l’accès Émile-Journault pas déneigé, la voie polyvalente qui était une véritable patinoire), les belvédères mal entretenus (jusqu’à la semaine dernière) et maintenant aucune nouvelle ouverture de secteur avant 2021! C’est triste. Il va falloir s’armer de patience…

Un parc toujours glacé

Constatant que les rues et les trottoirs étaient largement libre de glace, j’ai décidé d’aller prendre ma marche de santé sans mettre mes crampons. Quelle Erreur! Le Parc Frédéric-Back est lui toujours glacé sur la majorité de ses sentiers (et ceux qui sont libre de glace sont évidemment plutôt boueux)…

J’ai pris le sentier polyvalent par le parc Champdoré, comme à mon habitude, et dans ce secteur c’est toujours une patinoire qui nécessiterait un épandage généreux d’abrasifs. C’est le cas jusqu’après la côte, passé l’entrée Legendre, et après cela c’est fondue. Toutefois, n’ayant pas été déneigé de tout l’hiver, l’accès Émile-Journault vers l’intérieur du parc est encore enneigé et glacé. Par contre, comme la neige a fondue un peu et est durcie, cette entrée est maintenant accessible sans trop d’acrobaties. À partir de là, le sentier qui fait le tour de la butte du “boisé” est en grande partie dégagé.

Je suis donc très déçu que le Parc Frédéric-Back, qui devrait normalement être accessible en toute saison tant aux piétons, coureurs et cyclistes, qu’aux skieurs et raquetteurs, n’a reçu que très peu d’entretien cet hiver, le rendant pratiquement inaccessible aux randonneurs qui n’ont pas de crampons et le laissant au plaisir exclusif des skieurs et raquetteurs. Cela n’a d’ailleurs rien à voir avec la quantité de neige ou de pluie reçue cet hiver et tout à voir avec la quasi absence de déneigement et d’épandage d’abrasifs dans le parc. Le parc était beaucoup mieux entretenu durant l’administration précédente. Comme la mairesse de VSP m’a informé que le “parc se trouve dans notre arrondissement cependant la gestion ne nous reviens pas” et qu’il “fait partie du réseau des grands parcs et donc c’est la ville centre qui le gère,” je vais donc dorénavant adresser mes doléances à la ville centre (Ville de Montréal, Valérie PlanteParc Frédéric Back) qui malheureusement réponds pas mal moins souvent (jusqu’à maintenant je n’ai jamais eut de réponses) aux commentaires que les arrondissements…

Voir mes autres commentaires sur l’état glacé des sentiers du Parc Frédéric-Back avec mes billets Coeur de glaceN’ice park, et Stat’ice report.

Aussi, suite à cette malencontreuse chute sur le sentier polyvalent du parc (où j’ai  déchiré mon pantalon), j’ai décidé de faire une réclamation à la ville (pour le remplacement de mon pantalon et l’achat de crampons!). J’ai reçu une confirmation écrite (dans un language un peu intimidant!) et par téléphone. On me demande si j’ai reçu des dommages physiques. Je réponds que si c’était le cas je l’aurais mentionné dans ma réclamation. “À part le pantalon déchiré et une petit ecchymose, non, il n’y a pas eut de dommage physique”. Sur ce on me répond (je paraphrase), “une ecchymose? Ben là, à cause de ce dommage à votre personne il va y avoir un délais d’un mois avant que l’on puisse poursuivre la réclamation” ! Maudite ville à marde!
