Cremazie (Montreal Metro)

Crémazie (Montreal Metro)

Crémazie is a station on the Orange Line of the Montreal Metro rapid transit system, operated by the Société de transport de Montréal (STM). It is located on the border between the boroughs of Ahuntsic-Cartierville and Villeray–Saint-Michel–Parc-Extension in Montreal, Quebec, Canada . It was inaugurated on October 14, 1966, as part of the original network of the metro.

The metro station, designed by Adalbert Niklewicz, is a normal side-platform station, built in tunnel. A large volume serves as the transept, with three of the four platform stairways in enclosed tunnels. The mezzanine serves two entrances, one on each side of the Autoroute Métropolitaine, and both integrated into buildings; the northern access has doors both in front of and behind the building.

A large ceramic mural by Georges Lauda and Paul Pannier, Le poète dans l'univers ("the poet in the universe"), is located on the wall of the large volume, over the Montmorency platform. It commemorates three famous Quebec poets, Octave Crémazie, Émile Nelligan, and Hector de Saint-Denys Garneau, represented by wrought iron masks on the mural.

Origin of the name

This station is named for boul. Crémazie, in turn commemorating Octave Crémazie (1827–1879), one of Quebec's most important poets and the author of "Le Drapeau de Carillon." The street was so named in 1914.
