See you next year, Canal Lachine

20111110_mmpix_canal2.jpg The unseasonally warm weather lately has felt a lot like those early Spring days where we emerge from our Winter caves and put our arms up to bask in the soon-to-be-summer sun. But alas, it has all been a ruse as these warm days actually mark the end of a slightly warmer Autumn and lead to what will likely be another long, cold, and snow forsaken winter (not that winter in Montreal isn't awesome in so many ways).

For the residents of St. Henri, Point St. Charles, Lachine, and Lasalle, the change of the seasons is marked by the draining of the Lachine Canal, which was done gradually over the past few weeks. 20111110_mmpix_canal1.jpg 20111110_mmpix_canal3.jpg The Canal, which formerly helped its surrounding shore lines develop into the largest industrial area in Canada in the early 20th century, is now used mainly for leisure boating and a romantic river-side view of the Montreal skyline. The draining serves as a grim reminder that the warm summer bike rides and breezy autumn walks along the canal are over, and what water is left between it's concrete walls will soon turn to ice. 20111110_mmpix_canal4.jpg 20111110_mmpix_canal5.jpg See you in April, Canal Lachine.
