Canada Motel Revisited












HI MARTY, CONGRATULATION TO LINDA ALEX-LAR. IT WAS CANADA MOTEL ON TASCHEREAU IN G.PK. IT WAS BUILT IN 1950 BY THE FIRST OWNER BOURGEOIS BISSONNETTE HE WAS FROM ST-BLAISE,OPENED IN 1951 HE SOLD IT TO MAURICE GENEREUX IN 1960 FOR APPROX.$100,000.00 AND MAYBE A HOUSE MY SOURCE IS NOT ENTIRELY SURE MY SOURCE IS JEAN-PIERRE BELAND HE LIVED THERE AT HIS UNCLE'S MOTEL IN THE FIFTIES. I WENT THERE TO SEE HIM AROUND 1958. I SAW MAURICE
GENEREUX THIS WEEK HE DOES NOT KNOW WHAT THEY ARE GOING TO DO THERE HE IS SURE THEY ARE GOING TO DEMOLISH THE
MOTEL UNFORTUNATELY. THE PRICE HE GOT IS OVER $2,000,000.00 BUT THAT I AM NOT SURE. I TOURED SOME MOTELS AND
TOOK PICS, THIS CANADA MOTEL WAS A REAL G.PK. LANDMARK THERE WAS AN AN ARTICLE IN THE MONTREAL GAZETTE.

MARTY I ONLY KNOW OF 3 MOTELS THAT WHERE IN G.PK. THE CANADA MOTEL, THE LA SIESTA MOTEL NEAR THE CHAMPION
LANE, AND FOR THE OLDER ONES THE AMERICAIN MOTEL CORNER REGINA ON DEVONSHIRE WHERE AFTER, THEY HAD A SORT
OF CHRONIC HOSPITAL. MARTY DO BLOGGERS KNOW OF ANY OTHER MOTELS IN G.PK.

THANKS MARTY

P.S. MARTY WHEN I TOOK PICS INSIDE THE MOTEL THIS WEEK I SAW THEY HAD MIRRORS IN THE CEILING YES THE CEILING
MARTY DO YOU THING SOME G.PK. GIRLS PUT THEIR MAKE- UP ON, LYING IN BED, MAYBE A BLOGGER COULD EXPLAIN ME THAT.
