A couple of weeks back we were discussing statues in hockey. In relation to that article, I think this article by Ya The Habs Rule will be of interest to you.
Kevin interviewed Marc-André J Fortier, Quebec's world renowned painter and sculptor. He was commissioned by the Montreal Canadiens to create the larger than life bronze renditions of Guy Lafleur, Howie Morenz, Maurice Richard and Jean Béliveau that currently stand at Canadiens Centennial Plaza. Full Story, including audio and transcripts of the interview.
There is a Maurice Richard statue in front of the Maurice-Richard arena next to the Olympic Stadium in Montreal... I strongly militate for a JC Tremblay statue in my birthplace city of Saguenay...
Thanks for the mention Joe!
I was in the midst of finishing my work on Mr. Fortier at the same time your post came out.
Martin: I think there's a Richard statue in Ottawa as well.
