Street in Côte St. Luc named after Irving Layton

"Côte St. Luc unveiled Sunday the new Irving Layton Avenue, named after the late Montreal educator and poet who died in January 2006.
“'We honour an author, whose path from a crowded household as an immigrant family coming to Montreal to a literary giant, is as inspirational as the poetry he left us,' Mayor Anthony Housefather told a crowd gathered on the new street that contains new homes under construction, and is located near Guelph Road and Parkhaven Avenue." Joel Goldenberg at The Suburban has the rest of the story.
