Editorial policy

The REM Website is dedicated to the construction phase of the project. With the primary objective of informing the population about the construction in progress and to come, the Website enables citizens affected by the REM construction to follow the progress of the works, work sites and to be informed about their impacts.

Netiquette for social media

The REM wishes discussions on all of its online platforms to be respectful. Please follow these good conduct rules, especially for social media (Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn and YouTube).

1. Be respectful

To foster communication and discussion, we ask that your comments be respectful so we can maintain a pleasant, courteous and constructive atmosphere.

2. Inappropriate comments

When we see that a comment reflects behaviour that we judge to be inappropriate (e.g. remarks that are offensive, defamatory, harassing, aggressive or discriminatory; personal attacks; vulgar, obscene or malicious language; copy-pasting on multiple posts; spamming or trolling), we reserve the right to delete that comment.

3. Promotional comments

Since our objective is to interact with citizens and answer questions about the REM, we ask that you not use our social media pages to promote personal, professional or political projects.

4. Debate

Arguments may spread out and lose their connection to the discussion taking place or to the REM. We reserve the right to remove exchanges that go beyond the scope of the project, and potentially to move them into a future discussion.

5. Questions about the project

We pay close attention to all of your contributions. However, while we respond to the great majority of questions that are sent to us, we may pass over certain comments. If you think that your question was left out, you may send us a private message or email us at [email protected].

We reserve the right to ban users who repeatedly fail to respect our netiquette (through inappropriate or promotional comments).
