I haven't seen it for myself, but my brother crossed Jacques-Cartier Bridge recently and told me that they started digging a big ditch for the foundations of the ride. I'll try to get some pictures eventually but it'll have to wait a bit as the sidewalk on the bridge is closed during the winter, and it's pretty much the only good spot from which we can get pictures of the construction outside of the park itself (and anything interesting will probably be covered in snow anyway).

I am pretty sure I am the only person in the world who actually liked Green Lantern and thought it was one of the most insane, crazy, holy-sh*t-what-just-happened coasters ever built. Yes, painful, but I'd take it over some boring, predictable coaster any day. I'm actually a little sad it's gone.
But then again, most people who hate it rode it only once or twice. I rode it probably 15-20 times over its 6 years of operations at SFMM and had a healthy mix of good, bad, and OK rides on it. Not gonna lie, I'll miss the darn thing.
^ Perhaps it will run correctly in Canada where they can let it run as it’s suppose to. That was never going to happen in the US, where people constantly walk around with resting “I’m 2 seconds away from complaining” face.
I’ve heard a lot of people saying that and I’m totally on board with America being ridiculous in general, but does anyone seriously expect La Ronde to be the park that takes a poorly run ride and run it better? Look at Monstre.
