Westmount is in mourning for its native son – Leonard Cohen 1934-2016

Westmount is in mourning for a native son.

Raised on Belmont Avenue, Leonard Cohen never forgot his deep spiritual roots at the Shaar Hashomayim, a short walk down the Cote Road. Nor did he forget his more temporal roots in a favourite haunt called Murray Park, almost next door to his house.

Goodbye, Leonard. You showed us where to look “among the garbage and the flowers”.


Mayor Peter F. Trent
