A call for air conditioners and fans for those who need them

With the first heatwave of the summer season upon us, many low income families in Côte Saint-Luc are left without any window air conditioners or fans to cool them off. With malls, movie theatres, libraries and restaurants closed due to the COVID-19 pandemic, these usual spots of refuge are  unavailable.

Justin and Julian enjoy my old air conditioner in their Sir Walter Scott Street apartment.


A few days ago I communicated with Ariel Davidson, who has been reaching out to those members of the community in need. I had an old air conditioner in my garage that I did not need and I glad donated it to a family on Sir Walter Scott Avenue. They parked it in their window and report it is in good working condition. Certainly there must be others within our midst who can assist.

If so please email me at

I am reaching out to some community organizations to see if they can assist.
