The late Montreal poet Irving Layton will have a Côte St. Luc street named in his honour. Irving Layton Ave. will be the name of a new residential road off Midway Ave. near Parkhaven Ave., according to mayor of Côte St. Luc Anthony Housefather.

"Irving Layton is an internationally renowned author and poet who spent much of his life in Côte St. Luc," Housefather said.

"There is an important local connection. We tend to name streets after people who are locally known or internationally known," he added.

A street dedication ceremony will take place in late fall, according to Housefather.

Members of Layton’s family and Côte St. Luc residents will be invited to witness the unveiling of the new street sign.
