Back in July some construction workers discovered the remains of an 18th century village while doing some work under the Turcot Interchange. Well now, according to CBC, the remains will not be preserved.

Transport Quebec made the announcement last night that the village known back then as St-Henri-des-Tanneries will be completely destroyed so that the construction project could continue uninterrupted.

Some of the artifact may be saved, but the ruins will definitely have to go. The entire village is the size of two football fields it will likely be destroyed in the next few days.
