Quebec Bridge Commemorative Monument to receive Eagle


The Mohawk Council of Kahnawà:ke today unveiled the finishing touches to the smaller of two commemorative monuments for the 100th anniversary of the Quebec bridge disaster. A granite eagle has been installed atop the structure and now completes the monument that the MCK contributed to the anniversary events last August.

“The eagle symbolically continues to look for the men lost on that terrible day,” said Chief Kenneth McComber, who was instrumental in having the monument built and completed. “It will also symbolically continue to watch over the men and women who have carried on our tradition as ironworkers.”

The four-sided black granite monument contains the names and photos of all thirty-three men lost in the disaster. It was the single largest loss of life in Kahnawà:ke’s history.

The monument stands adjacent to the main Quebec Bridge monument in the park along the walking path.
