Montreal’s threatened heritage (extended cut video)


Every year, Héritage Montréal publishes its threatened emblematic sites list. Added to this year’s list was St-Henri’s Workers’ Houses, made famous by Gabrielle Roy’s novel The Tin Flute. These little homes along St-Augustin, near the Lachine Canal, are now being threatened by the push for development in southwest Montréal.

This is the extended version of the video I did for Open File Montreal to accompany my latest story: Griffintown, St-Henri landmarks threatened by development? Which is a multimedia project I put together to talk about the work Héritage Montréal does raising awareness about the city’s threatened emblematic sites, and how people are handling the news of two relics being added to this annual list.
