Quebec Bridge Memorial Maintenance


The Mohawk Council of Kahnaw�:ke (MCK) wishes to inform the community that repairs to the Quebec Bridge Memorial, located on River Road, are taking place today.

Mr. Gilles Vincent from Monuments Charles Vincent et Fils from Lachine will be conducting the repairs and refurbishing of the Memorial. Over the past year, community members have noticed that pictures are missing from the obelisk, which needs replacement, and some plaques (photos of the men) also need refreshing.

"Maintaining the Quebec Bridge Memorial is important to preserve our history and our story," said Rats�nhaienhs Harry Rice. "We are asking that people enjoy observing the installation, but also ask that you not play on or vandalize this historic monument."

Dancer/choreographer Barbara Diabo, a descendant of Louis D′ailleboust, will be performing at Montreal′s Place des Arts with her troupe this September, featuring a traveling exhibit focusing on the Quebec Bridge Disaster. APTN will be filming at the Memorial on July 27th to showcase Barbara Diabo and the Sky Dancers.    

"The Quebec Bridge disaster is part of Kahnaw�:ke′s history, and telling the story is important to our understanding of who we are and connects us to our ancestors and our families," continued Rats�nhaienhs Rice.
