I'm not Canadian and hail from Massachusetts well to the south. I do have many friends and a couple of wonderful God-kids in Canada so follow the news to some degree It appears the the Francophone Quebecois want to remove the name of Lord Jeffery Amherst from Montreal street signs. Linky here What next? Will Prince Arthur St become Rue Louis XV le Bien-AimÃ© ?? If they truly have to remove the name of Lord Amherst from the street signs might I respectfully suggest that the street be renamed Rue Edgar Trottier. He was, IIRC, a war veteran.*The Francophones should appreciate that it is appropriate to replace the name of one veteran with that of another. * M. Trottier was the poor man run over and killed at 4AM by Rene Levesque as he raced through Montreal with his mistress by his side. M. Levesque did pay his debt to society however in the form of a $25 fine.
