Abstract: This magazine is published monthly by Save Montreal, a federation of citizens groups dedicated to the planned and responsible development of Montreal and to the preservation of its neighbourhoods, historic buildings, and green spaces. The feature article of this issue asks the question: "Will the Parti Quebecois save Montreal?" and goes on to tell of the silence on urban issues since the November 15 election. It outlines a brief presented to the government which encourages the implementation of election promises of decentralisation of power and the need for rigorous urban planning in Montreal.
S.O.S. Montreal focuses mainly on the activities of its affiliated citizens' groups. This month's issue includes reports on an anti-auto demonstration by "Citizens on Cycles" at the annual Auto-Show, a community conference held by the people of NDG, the Snowdon residents struggle against the demolition of stores, and housing for a metro station and garage, the establishment of a new housing co-operative, residents' struggle against demolition of their houses by Clermont Motors, and a demonstration against cutbacks in commuter service on CP Rail.
Other articles in this issue discuss the waste of energy in Quebec, the uselessness and danger of proposed nuclear energy plants, the advantage of refraining from using cars to get to work, and the merits of Toronto's city housing program.
