Westmount rises again

Six years after Quebec first started implementing Westmount?s forced merger with the City of Montreal, followed by an intense anti-merger campaign and a successful demerger vote last year, the day of municipal reconstitution finally came.

On New Year's Day Westmount?s flag was raised on a stainless steel mast in front of City Hall. Mayor Karin Marks, assisted by former mayor Peter Trent, ran up the banner, which features a setting sun, the crenellations of City Hall and the Raven of St. Anthony, representing the original name (Côte St. Antoine) of Westmount.
