Montreal council supports public recognition of Wiesel

September 17, 2019

Montreal city council unanimously adopted a motion to name a public place in honour of Elie Wiesel at its Sept. 17 meeting.

It speaks of the late Holocaust survivor and author’s “exceptional life and the importance of his work.”

The motion was tabled by independent Coun. Marvin Rotrand and seconded by Coun. Emilie Thuilluer, the executive committee member responsible for heritage, opposition Ensemble Montréal Leader Lionel Perez and Coun. Andrée Hénault of Equipe Anjou.
