La croix du sacrifice -9/23/2019
La Croix du sacrifice (the Cross of Sacrifice) was inaugurated on July 1th, 1924 in honor of the 60,000 Canadians who lost their lives during the First World War. Before the installation, they placed under the monument, a handful of soil from Vimy, site of the battle where Canadians died. Each year, at the 11th hour of the 11th day of 11th month, a memorial ceremony is held in front of the cross to mark the anniversary of the Armistice.

Located at the corner of Grande-Allée East and George VI Avenue at the entrance to the Parc des Champs de Bataille, the Cross of Sacrifice was erected to remember those soldiers who died during the First World War (1914-1918). References to the dead of the Second World War (1939-1945) and the Korean War (1950-1953) were added to the monument.

Rue D'auteil

This is really nice and quiet street with very nice apartments.


The street is lined with statues and to our surprise there is a statue of Nguyen Trai, an illustrious Vietnamese Confucian scholar, a noted poet and a skilled politician.

Rue Saint Jean

Rue Saint Jean is one of Quebec city oldest commercial stretches.  In the 19th century, merchants settled there in droves in houses that doubled as their place of business, lending the street its special charm

Their shops did so well that soon the street had to be widened.  Today it continues to be very popular spot, with lots of shops and it is very lively.


We had reservation tonight at Chez Boulay tonight and we just realized that the restaurant is located here. 

Will be back tonight for dinner.
