Activity Three: Propose a New Monument

Someone in your community, perhaps even in your school, is contributing, or has contributed to your community in a positive way. Research different ways to commemorate someone (stamps, statues, scholarships, building and street names, etc.). Select someone who you think deserves to be commemorated in your community. Determine which commemorative method (e.g. a monument, a special day) would be the most appropriate for your honouree. Present your commemoration to your class.

Extend this activity! There is also a Maurice Richard statue in Montréal. Why does Richard have a statue in two cities? Consider the individual you have decided to commemorate. Would it be fitting to have a second commemoration of them in the country’s capital? Where would be the best location for such a monument or commemoration?
