New art piece to honour 3 great women

A new art piece will ornament the redone Alexandra Pier and is meant to honour Jeanne Mance, Marguerite Bourgeoys and Marguerite d’Youville. This is the second time in two days I’ve seen those three women named together in a news story: I saw a piece about how some nuns wanted to see three stations on the pink line named after the women, but I can’t find a link now.

Speaking of nuns, the remaining sisters of Ste-Anne in Lachine have decided to offer their buildings to Lachine borough for the public good. They want to see their convent converted for social housing, not turned to the profit of condo developers.
