 montreal.com - Maisonneuve Park
Named after Montreal’s founder Paul Chomedey, sieur de Maisonneuve (1612-1676), the park was meant to be a tremendous asset to the eponymous town of Maisonneuve.
The mayor of Maisonneuve wanted to grace his city with a grand boulevard leading to a major park and this piece of land was chosen and named in 1910, with Morgan Boulevard - still rather stately - in its wake.

 maisonneuve :: eclectic curiosity
Maisonneuve takes its name from Montréal’s 17th-century founder, Paul de Chomedy, sieur de Maisonneuve, and his broadbrim hatted, jackbooted, standard-gripping image serves as the magazine’s much-repeated emblem.
In Number 1, which appeared last September, Maisonneuve put poutine on the menu: the french fries of creative prose, the gravy of poetry, and the cheese curds of criticism.
Maisonneuve has a good eye for parodies, lampoons, and spoofs, all scarce commodities in Canada, whose citizens by now must surely have displaced the Scandinavians as the world’s most earnestly joyless.

 The McGill Daily: Maisonneuve’s Got the Write Stuff
Maisonneuve is currently distributed across Canada and the United States, with a strong presence in New York and New England.
While Webster, 32, obviously wants Maisonneuve to tap into the mythology of the humble origins of The New Yorker, it’s clear that the creator of Maisonneuve, son of former Gazette and Globe editor Norman Webster, has global ambitions for his upstart publication.
Webster sees Maisonneuve’s Canadian origin as a fact: “I’m Canadian and I want to live in Montreal, so I’m starting it here.” But he insists that nationality is not a defining feature of the magazine’s identity.
