Because they have nothing better to do, Mike Citrome’s band of history-rewriters are to descend on the Sud-Ouest borough council meeting tonight to demand they change the name of Lionel-Groulx metro to Oscar Peterson, a campaign that has already gained national attention because it’s being organized on (gasp) Facebook.
Date: Tuesday, March 4
Location: Sud-Ouest borough hall
815 rue Bel-Air, about three blocks west of the station

No word yet on whether there will be a counter-protest from the anti-name-change group.
Previously: Oscar Peterson metro won’t be easy to accomplish
Oscar Petersen was born and grew up near the Place St Henri metro station, not Lionel Groulx. Maybe I’ll start a Facebook group to have them rename Place St Henri metro station after Petersen.
