Early bird tour: Walking the Postindustrial Lachine Canal (postponed to Friday)

My Session Status

7:00 AM, viernes 2 sep 2022 (1 hour 30 minutos)
UQAM, pavillon J.-A. De Sève (DS) - DS Registration table (meeting point)

Walkers will meet at the entrance (there is only one) of Lionel Groulx Metro and from there walk along the canal to the St-Gabriel Locks. This was once the most heavily industrialized area in Canada. It is now a zone of affluence between the hardscrabble, but now gentrifying, Point Saint-Charles, historically Irish and French, and Little Burgundy, one of Montreal's first multi-racial neighbourhoods. Several former factories were converted into condominiums in the 1980s, though Robin Hood Flour continues to operate. 

The tour will be conducted in English by Prof. Steven High
