|Renaming Parc Avenue to be Robert Bourassa Avenue?|
|Apparently some Montreal politicians want to rename Parc Ave to be Robert Bourassa Ave (CBC report). |
I have mixed feelings about it. The street passes between Parc du Mont-Royal and Parc Jeanne-Mance, which together form Montreal's glorious downtown park. I spent a lot of time at the Parcs playing sports, at the Tam-Tams or just hanging out. The name Parc Avenue is a great tribute to the culture that takes place there. Plus there are tons of stores on Parc above and below the Parks that have taken up the name.
On the other hand, Parc currently becomes Rue Bleury below Sherbrooke. I've always thought it was stupid to have streets change their names part-way through. Also, I do think it would be cool to have the intersection of Robert Bourassa and Rene Levesque.
PS: This blog entry was originally about something else. However since it (randomly) got a comment from a concerned citizen along with some follow-ups, I have repurposed it to the issue.
