Just when you thought you’ve seen everything…. add a pro-USSR rally next to Cote Saint-Luc City Hall. You heard right.  This past  hour a rally of a couple hundred ex-pats and their descendants from the former republics of the Soviet Union gathered in Veterans Park to commemorate the Soviet victory over the Nazis in 1945.

Russians and Ukrainians unite in Cote Saint-Luc

Russian chants and songs rang out across Cavendish Boulevard as the flag waving crowd grew in size and volume.     There were Russians, Ukrainians and others from the former USSR states that came from across Montreal for the otherwise unexpected rally.

Proud of the Soviet victory. Can you read this banner? Please add your comment.

With loud applause and cheers the group made their way to their cars and began a horn-honking procession. Flags waving from car windows, the parade made their way down Cavendish Boulevard.

    Another commemoration of the 70th anniversary of the Victory in Europe comes to a close in Cote Saint-Luc.
