Not gonna lie. I kinda want to jump into it and see if it works. But only when no one is looking because if it doesn't work, I don't want to end up on Fail Army.

There's a new installation in Victoria Park in the Old West End (Riverheard) neighbourhood of the city. You can see it there at the top of the first hill:



Let's take a closer look...



Like everything else here, it's dedicated to the Royal Newfoundland Regiment. It's a combination of broze death masks of living descendants of WWI dead and veterans.

My father was mugged in that park when he was 17. When I was in boot camp, some of our outdoor workouts were there. A friend's former coworkers are always there smoking weed. And this statue. That's the overall atmosphere of Victoria Park in my experience.

The belvedere is a 100 metre long walkway suspended in the river forest canopy off the Tache Promenade. It was envisioned to provide a unique perspective on the river landscape, and capture one of the most spectacular views in Winnipeg, framing the Canadian Museum of Human Rights, Esplanade Riel, The Forks, and the downtown skyline.

Here's a new temporary installation in Hamilton at the site of the cancelled, 30-storey, "The Connolly", which is now moving forward with a new developer.

Quote:
"Tonight we turn on an immersive light tunnel in honour of Hamilton, the Lunar New Year and a site that has been in the dark for too long. It gets dark earlier, stays cold longer and we trudge along sidewalks hoping to get home faster. Hamilton is invited for the month of February to take a detour through the light tunnel at 98 James Street S. and participate in this camera-friendly experience. People can walk through a 100-ft long tunnel filled with silk lanterns of bright colours, different shapes and sizes – from one foot to one metre – all in celebration of art, creativity and the Lunar New Year.

Designed by top Vietnamese developer Hue Developments, the installation is a preamble for their Canadian launch. Marking a new chapter with a simple “hello”, Hue Developments’ lantern installation offers their country’s symbol of artistic values to the creative landscape of Hamilton. Coming back home to Hamilton (more on this later) for their first Canadian project, Hue’s multi-residential project in partnership with Toronto-based LCH Developments is set to launch later this year."

1919 General Strike Monument

1919 General Strike Monument
The plan is for the sculpture to be unveiled June 21, a century to the day after the bloodiest event of the Winnipeg General Strike. On a Saturday six weeks into the 1919 strike, tens of thousands of people gathered on Main Street at the former city hall to support striking workers and to protest the arrest days earlier of labour leaders.

When a streetcar driven by strikebreakers approached, demonstrators rocked it off its tracks and set fire to it. The North West Mounted Police, joined by untrained special constables, rode into the crowd with clubs and guns. Bullets were fired. Two people died and dozens were injured as a result of the confrontation on a day now known as Bloody Saturday.

@HTFC_Winnipeg May 15

To celebrate 100 years since Winnipeg was the epicentre of the modern labour movement in Canada, we are collaborating with @noamgonick and @WinnipegArts on new artwork at the corner of Market Avenue and Main Street, commemorating the 1919 General Strike!

Very cool piece, but does it bother anyone else that "streetcar" is facing the wrong side, and hence the doors and headlight are on the wrong side?

It may have been just a mistake by who ever made the render. If you look at the first render and the second the streetcars are different. the second looks more like the one in the picture. What bothers me is it's doesn't look like a streetcar being tipped over but more like it's sinking in quick sand.

That is very cool, been wondering when it would be finished.A very important piece of civic history, and will get people talking about it more, which is always a good thing.
