Walking through the completed portion of Quartier Concordia this afternoon (northeast corner of Guy and de Maisonneuve), I snapped these photos of a wreath lying in front of the Norman Bethune statue. This reminded me of last week, when I saw a group of Chinese gathered in the square. Naturally, I continued on my way not thinking much at the time, but then I realized that they must have been paying hommage to the doctor who devoted himself to communism and the Chinese people.
Bethune died Nov. 12, 1939. Making it 70 years ago last Thursday.
