The Gazette Opinion: An Irish Memorial Park at the Black Rock

By Fergus Keyes – June 27th 2014

In Montreal’s Calcutta-like hot summer of 1847, large numbers of Irish immigrants were arriving in the city. Many had ship fever (typhus) and as result, approximately 6,000 men, women and children died and were buried in the area around the Montreal side of the Victoria Bridge.

Mr. Justin Trudeau & Walk to the Rock

Summer is of course, at little “slow” in Montreal, so unfortunately we do not have much of an update report on the project for the Cultural Green Space. Since meeting with Mayor Coderre back in May, we have not been able to get any replies to our e-mails to his office, or to other Montreal officials, requesting information on the progress of this effort. Hopefully come September, they will be a little more responsive.

As a point of interest, when we marched with the AOH to the Black Rock back in June, we asked any number of local, provincial, and federal party leaders to join us. The majority of them did reply, with their regrets, that their agendas would not allow them to attend.
