Time to create a monument for the dead of LaSalle Heights
I was delighted last year when Montreal created a monument for the 37 victims of the Bluebird Cafe fire downtown.
The same now should be done for the 28 victims of the LaSalle Heights blast at 377 Bergevin, which is now a field with a parking lot where the three storey-building once stood.
I propose a beautiful water fountain to remember the victims, because water is a great symbol of life, something that the many children and adults killed in the blast might have found delightful and enchanting, something all people would just look at with some appreciation and the names of those killed by the gas explosion could be listed at the base.
