Here's the full story
It should be kept because it saves face for all of montreal's super-shit parks- and it wasn't even made to skate, which is the biggest joke of all. It unites so many people together from all over the world from australia to albany, and it typifies human goodwill and respect- one love, for real... Things that are increasingly rare in today's society, transcending gender, age and social status- this needs to be preserved. The minute cost that it would take to move it would increase it's social and communal value tenfold- something no other municipal project has ever hoped or been able to acheive. Just to compare- I have not once heard of someone travelling from abroad to skate for example, Jarry park- montreal's oldest existing concrete park- because it had such legendary status as the stadium pipe or such a reputation for killer terrain and good vibrations. The pipe is typical DIY- from shoveling the snow in winter to bringing candles and lights to skate at night. It's been going on for twenty years this year! How many municipal projects have this heritage? Bureaucracy should be put aside on this one and
montreal as a city should stand up for the right thing and confirm what a great and cultural city it is and help save the pipe.
