I spent quite a while in Montreal in the 1960s - just after Expo -  and I just can't recall it. We went everywhere.  It's driving me nuts.

Gadget, apparently it's across from The Bay (shopping place) if that help's you.

I must have walked by it  ??? ??? ???

As it was the 60s, maybe I was a little um

I really loved Montreal. I'm surprised that Keith's Dad didn't stay there. I was sorely tempted.

I was in Montreal, Quebec on the weekend for an Irish Dance Competition.  My hotel that I was staying at was Le Square Phillips, when I got there I thought, why does this ring a bell?  And then it came to me!  This monument was just outside my hotel!  After 6 years I remembered LOL.
