University Street renamed Robert-Bourassa Boulevard

A section of University Street in downtown Montreal has now officially been renamed in honour of former Quebec premier Robert Bourassa.

Robert-Bourassa Boulevard stretches between Sherbrooke and Notre Dame streets. 

That means it actually crosses the street named after his old political rival, René Lévesque.

The city installed the new street signs this week. The change has already come into effect on Google Maps.
