Côte Morin

Côte Morin by Claude Langevin

Claude Langevin, a self-taught artist, has a love for nature. Working mainly outside, he has an acute sense of observation and works rapidly. His paintings can be found in many art galleries.


The côte Morin was inaugurated by the Honorable Augustin-Norbert Morin. During the 1940s, between 5,000 and 7,000 people used that street as a ski hill. Sand was spread on only one side of the street. The slope at the top of the hill was reduced to help with the driving conditions.
In August 1950, young people under the supervision of Robert Lapalme painted the street with gouache during the Nuit Laurentienne. Police officers ordered it to be removed for security reasons. In July, this hill was covered with ice for ski races. The homes featured in the mural exist today. Look downhill from the Parc de la famille and you will see them between the trees.
