Remembering the Bluebird Café fire of 1972

Susan Campbell speaks with David Montgomery about his memories of the fire. He is originally from the Gaspé region, but was in Montreal on the night of September 1, 1972 above the Bluebird Café. He escaped from the fire, and his brother and sister were also rescued. But his sister later died from injuries, and his brother was never the same. He supports the idea for a memorial where the bar used to be.


Sharon Share is spear-heading that idea. Her father died in the fire, just three months before she was born. She tells Susan why it's important to have something at the spot to remember the victims of fire.
