The city has beautiful parks, many activities for its residents and wonderful schools for its children. There are parks, sports associations of ALL kinds, a wonderful recreation centre and library and it is only about 20 minutes from downtown Montreal! Beaconsfield is a wonderful place to live!

The mayor's views on 'One Island, One City'........

 "One Island One City"

"One island one city", won`t work . It didn`t work in Halifax or Atlanta, and it isn`t working in Toronto." said Mayor Kemp ."The government tells us if we become part of 'one island one city' we will lose our bilingual status , which means the city will be all french .It means that taxes will increase and services will decline .There will only be one representative for 30 000 people instead of 1 representative and 6 counselors for 1 city ."
