Victor Boyle started hearing about it early Tuesday morning via Facebook.
Large election signs — two touting the Parti Québécois, one the Liberals — had popped up next to the Black Rock in the median of Bridge St. near the Victoria Bridge.
One of the most solemn places for Montreal’s Irish community, the boulder commemorates the 6,000 poor Irish immigrants who escaped the Great Famine only to die of typhus in Montreal. They were buried in mass graves near the bridge.
“It’s a cemetery, there are 6,000 people buried under those (election) signs,” said Boyle, who drove to Montreal from his home in Hemmingford to see for himself. “They’re desecrating 6,000 Irish souls.”
