Laval 50+ Anniversary

Post by Guest on Mon Apr 09, 2018 1:19 am

The City of Laval was incorporated in '65, so the 50th Anniversary was 3 years ago, but at that time I was unfortunately not a member.  The following video shows off the new waterfront condo complex and the beautiful Back River (Rivière des Prairies), which I was close to most of my life. It's a narrow river so Montréal is always close by and very visible. In our old place we could see PVM from the street and from the balcony across the street from my place now you can see the Big O.

The condo complex is in Ste. Dorothée, which is close to Chomedey, where my high school, Chomedey Catholic, was, which was right on the banks of the river.

The river was celebrated in the poem, De Rivière des Prairies, by 1800s, Scottish-born Canadian poet Wm. H. Drummond, who also lived by its banks in then Bord-à-Plouffe (later L'Abord-à-Plouffe), which was merged with St. Martin and Renaud to form Chomedey. Here are a few lines.

I travel far upon dem as moche as any man--
But all de t'ousan' reever I was never pass along,
For w'at dey call de beauty, from de mountain to de sea,
Dere's wan dat I be t'inkin', de wan w'ere I belong,
Can beat dem all, an' easy, too, de Rivière des Prairies!

The hostess in the video is Orla Johannes, who was co-host on Entertainment Spotlight from 2000-08. I sent her an e-mail at the time, and she responded with a thank-you message. This is the 1st time I see her since then.
