Montreal Monday: winter fun ban, montage meltdown, and GeoMontreal mapping

Each Monday, we bring you some of the popular posts from our sister blog, Spacing Montréal. We’ll keep an eye open for topics and discussions that are pertinent to current public space issues in Toronto.

• A sign bans winter fun at Murray Hill Park, writes Alanah Heffez. Westmount and City Public Works however, says tobogganing and skiing is still allowed on the small hill, about four degrees steep, where the city has set up mattresses to keep people from sliding into the street below.

• The very popular before-and-after Spacing Montreal feature by Guillaume St-Jean, “Montage du Jour”, came to a dramtic stop when the Bibiltiothà¨que et Archives Nationales de Québec (BANQ), asked him to suspend his column. The feature returned a few days later.

• Alanah Heffez writes that GeoMontreal is looking for ideas of places and experiences that represent authentic Montreal culture and environment, to be included in the city’s upcoming Geotourism MapGuide.

  1. Just to clarify about the Before-and-after column:
    the images collected in the National Library Archives (BANQ) have been removed from the blog from the while Guillaume applies for official permission to use them.
    However he has been able to continue the column by using images from other databases.
