Those of us who worked on the Empress Project (Cinema V) admired the expertise and cultural sensitivity Louise Poulin showed in setting out the potential and benefits of developing English and minority arts and culture in the West end of Montreal. It is because of voices like Louise that the struggle of minority arts and cultural institutions will continue to be heard , and continue to enrich the City of Montreal.
