City opts not to name street for Daisy Sweeney

After Daisy Sweeney died in 2017, Denis Coderre promised to name a street after her. Now the city is offering instead to rename Guy Paxton park, which till now has simply been named for the nearby intersection. Family members are not happy, although the little park is more than just a dog run, as one of them claims.

Sweeney was a piano teacher who taught both Oliver Jones and Oscar Peterson. That part of town already has an Oscar Peterson park and a Parc des Jazzmen.
