Citizen Lambert goes to city hall

Montreal heritage preservation advocate Phyllis Lambert, founder of the Canadian Centre for Architecture, takes her fight to city hall to save Griffintown and the Lower Main from demolition.

Lambert, also known as “Joan of architecture” appeared for the first time in many years to plead to Montreal city council and Mayor Gerald Tremblay to save the Griffintown Horse Palace, a 150-year-old horse stable, as well as to preserve the heritage architecture along The Main, St-Laurent Boulevard, and a particular stretch where a proposed 12-story office and retail complex is expected to be built.
