Jean Drapeau dreamed of Gaulish villages

La Presse has journalists turning over the pages of the Jean Drapeau archive, finding details like his idea to have a “village gaulois” at La Ronde and a metro red line using the Mount Royal tunnel – this has been seen before on early layouts of the system. Metro has some pictures and further details. The fascination is that Drapeau reshaped the city, and it’s interesting to see how things could’ve worked out differently if his plans had gone in other directions.
