Is this the greenest building in Canada?
Metro News
If "green" is a journey to architecture that regenerates and repairs the environment around it then the Center for Interactive Research on Sustainability, at the University of British Columbia, is something to aspire to. It is a building that nearly lives and breathes. The four-storey structure practically pulses with life compared to its cold, clammy, inanimate cousins.

La maison de Louis-Hippolyte La Fontaine sera sauvée
Les Affaires
À l'angle sud-est de l'Îlot Overdale, le quadrilatère où Kheng Ly et ses partenaires érigeront le projet YUL, s'élève la maison du premier chef d'un gouvernement responsable du Bas-Canada, Louis-Hippolyte La Fontaine, au pouvoir en 1842-1843 et de 1848 à 1851. Les défenseurs du patrimoine luttent depuis des décennies pour la sauvegarde de l'édifice, construit dans les années 1830 et aujourd'hui en piteux état. Le propriétaire précédent, le collectionneur d'art Robert Landau, a rasé toutes les autres demeures anciennes de l'avenue Overdale, mais la Ville de Montréal l'a empêché in extremis de passer celle de La Fontaine au pic des démolisseurs.
