STREET TO HONOUR POET IRVING LAYTON

The late Montreal poet Irving Layton will have a street in the Montreal borough of Côte St. Luc 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. "There is an important local connection. We tend to name streets after people who are locally known or internationally known," Housefather said. 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. For full Montreal Gazette article click here.
