This is one of the 250 signs that have been distributed by the Coalition pour l’arrondissement historique de Sillery.

Recently, Sillery’s historical neighbourhood has been the site of a colourful citizen mobilization. Signs have suddenly appeared on front lawns and cars. The signs read “S.O.S”, “Sillery for sale” and “Green spaces for everyone”. This might be puzzling for those who don’t live in Sillery and the questions that are raised by these signs might be largely unknown.
