Keys to History

Also in the Sainte-Marie neighbourhood, the huge facilities of the Montreal Gas Company converted coal into gas. In 1901, the company would be absorbed by a new corporation, the powerful Montreal Light, Heat and Power. This corporation would control the Montreal energy market until it was nationalized by the Quebec government in 1944, creating Hydro-Québec.
