Quebec Highway to be renamed

MONTREAL - The Quebec government is announcing Tuesday that a stretch of highway between Montreal and the Ontario border will be renamed to honour Canada's war dead.

The section of highway spans from the Turcot Interchange in Montreal to Riveiere-Beaudette, Que., near the Ontario-Quebec boundary. The Quebec Transport Department has confirmed to various media outlets it will be known as Autoroute du Souvenir, or Remembrance Highway.

Premier Jean Charest will make the official announcement during a morning news conference in Sainte-Anne-de-Bellevue, Que.

The highway can be seen from the Ste. Anne's Hospital, a veterans hospital on the western tip of Montreal island.

In August, a part of Ontario's Highway 401 between Trenton and Toronto, often used to repatriate fallen Canadian soldiers, was renamed the Highway of Heroes.

Finnaly,something good from my PM...

He could have named it Vimy Ridge highway or Dieppe highway since the highway looks like a battlefield,with all the cracks and potholes....
