The Cross lights up again (and again)

by Archives February 10, 2009

A Montreal landmark, the cross that sits on top of Mount Royal was lit up Feb. 5, casting its light on the mountain for the first time in almost four months. The city turned the cross’ lights off on Sept. 19 so that the 83-year-old, 26-tonne structure could undergo a facelift. Part of the reconstruction’s budget, which cost almost $2 million, went towards installing a computerized lighting system. The new system will incorporate coloured lights on the cross. People who braved the cold weather Wednesday were rewarded with a light show, getting a preview of the new system’s abilities.
