Default Saint-Jean-sur-Richelieu considers renaming street named after man who refused land sales to Jewish people

Saint-Jean-sur-Richelieu considers renaming street named after man who refused land sales to Jewish people

January 14, 2020

The City of Saint-Jean-sur-Richelieu is considering changing the name of a street and park in the area, which is currently named after a former resident who forbade selling or renting properties on a specific stretch of land to members of the Jewish community.

The late Alphonse Waegener owned part of the land in the Saint-Luc neighbourhood. He included the condition when he divided his assets and sold the plot to two buyers in the 1960s.

Mayor Alain Laplante told Global News on Tuesday he only learned of Waegener’s provisions on more than 300 subdivisions of land when he read about them in an article by La Presse.
