Rock Band to Make Urban Planning-Themed Album

Montreal band Tiny Iota is making an album about the battles surrounding the Ville-Marie Expressway and the Turcot Interchange project.

"As we've begun work on our new record and the themes have been chosen I'll be doing updates on what we're up to. The themes chosen are the Ville-Marie Expressway in Montreal, the Quebec government's Turcot Interchange proposal and the human cost of displacement on these projects. The story will trace the battles of the people of Plymouth Grove in the late 1960's and early 1970's whose homes were destroyed for the Ville-Marie and today's residents of the Village des Tanneries who are fighting to save their homes from the impending Turcot project."
