«The mural uses a Paul Kane landscape painting of the British Colombian frontier as a foundation to recreate the Quebecois flag replacing the fleur-de-lis with three aboriginal medicine masks and the portrait of former Prime Minister Rene Levesque. The ray of light that bisects the composition serves to complete the cross in the standard but also acknowledge St Laurent as the border between Anglo and Francophone culture with the words 'Ouest' and 'Est' featured prominently at the apex of the piece.» Gaia. Ce mur a été refait par Cyrcle en 2014.
