History pieces de la semaine

The Centre d’histoire piece this weekend shows us the launch of centralized ambulance services which didn’t happen here till 1959. (Hospitals had ambulances long before that, but they were individual services.)

The Gazette’s history feature this week looked back at Victor Goldbloom‘s first cabinet post, the McGarrigle sisters, and other bits of local history.

Radio-Canada archive items this week included a timely look at the history of the Petits Chanteurs du Mont-Royal, recently in the news after the CSDM pulled the plug on a longstanding agreement with the choir, also the history of Jean Coutu.
