Remembering our Veterans

One of the last (and perhaps most gratifying) projects I worked on before I resigned from McGill was a physical and virtual exhibit on McGill students and staff who served during the Second World War, a project that coincided nicely with 2005's "Year of the Veteran" in Canada.

The project culminated on November 11, 2005, Remembrance Day, when a moment of silence was observed and the exhibit revealed, both online and inside McGill's famous Arts Building.

I wrote a brief announcement (a few weeks later, it seems) about that day's events. The virtual exhibit, meanwhile, is still available online.

All that to say, today, I heard on the news (courtesy of CJAD radio) that the Quebec Government will rename a major Montreal highway to "Remembrance Highway" in honour of our veterans' service and sacrifice. Awesome!

Quebec Government is renaming Highway 20 to Rememberance Highway

If you're heading home to the West island right now there's a good chance you're taking "Autoroute du Souvenir."

What the heck is "Remembrance Highway" you ask?

It's what Highway 20 used to be called.

The Quebec Government is renaming Highway 20 between the Turcot yards and the Ontario border in honour of our veterans.

The Quebec Provincial Command of the Royal Canadian Legion says they've been fighting for the change.

The name change is immediate but no word on when the new signs will go up.

To start with I would like to congratulate the cradores of this blog, mainly because when I read it I enjoyed it very much. A few years ago I attended a conference called guanacaste costa rica real estate, at that conference had many interesting topics. Perhaps readers may find no relationship between the blog and this conference, but if someday can attend, would realize that there is much to do with this blog.
