City gives nod to Hydro plans for Black Rock

The city has given its approval to Hydro-Quebec’s plan to construct a central near the approach to the Victoria Bridge to be called “le poste des Irlandais” after a small nearby street which, take a look on Streetview, already has an electrical substation on it. This new installation would be much bigger and would likely displace the Black Rock, which was placed to “preserve from desecration the remains of 6000 immigrants who died of ship fever A.D. 1847-58” as the inscription says, but probably not for much longer.
