Villanueva park won’t have mural or name

A park in Montreal North supposedly to honour Fredy Villanueva won’t be named for him or have any image of him.

How any observer is to link the park to Fredy or his unfortunate demise is anyone’s guess.

Update: Borough mayor Christine Black says naming the park for Fredy was felt to be too polarizing, but some feel that calling the park “de l’Espoir” is a further insult to the family.

Who would begrudge the Villanueva family a memorial for their son? The police.
