Default Montreal should honour Elie Wiesel: city councillor

Montreal should honour Elie Wiesel: city councillor

August 19, 2019

Montreal Coun. Marvin Rotrand presented a petition to city council to have a public place named after Elie Wiesel on Aug. 19.

“It is my hope that Montreal can follow suit with an appropriate gesture that will give prominence to honouring the exemplary life of Elie Wiesel,” said Rotrand, a child of Holocaust survivors who has been a Montreal city councillor for 37 years and now sits as an independent.

As this was presented as a petition, there was no debate on the matter. Rotrand intends to table a motion in the fall that will formally request that city officials examine what would be the most appropriate place to name after Wiesel.
