Housing & Transport in Montreal – How suburbanization is improving the region’s competitiveness

Mr. Cox demonstrated that Montreal is in an enviable position with many comparative advantages, both in transportation and land use. He suggests that public officials should not adopt laws that will inevitably restrict mobility and raise housing prices, as many other urban areas have unfortunately done. In addition to his work as an independent consultant and professor, Wendell Cox is a Senior Fellow at the Heartland Institute and served on the Los Angeles County Transportation Commission and the Amtrak Reform Council.
