Put a crosswalk on Wellington street in between Charlevoix and Hibernia

Wellington is a throughway between Griffintown and Verdun through Point St Charles. As such, it can be quite busy at times. Marguerite Bourgeoys Park is on Wellington street at a very busy section. There are presently two locations to cross the street: one at the corner of Wellington and Hibernia, and another at Wellington and Charlevoix. Those two streets are quite far apart and there is a large section of the park that falls in between. 

My proposal is to add a pedestrian crosswalk at the corner of the park closest to Charlevoix. The speed limit is already 40 km/h but not many follow that limit. A crosswalk would provide some means of safety and alert drivers near the park. Families and children would be safer because of this proposal.
