At 435 feet, the tallest structure at Place d’Armes is 500 Place D’Armes. Don’t strain your neck looking up. The most interesting features are at eye level. This is The French Poodle. It is one of two bronze sculptures created in 2013 by Marc Andre J. Fortier named The Two Snobs. The other statue – placed about 200 feet away – shows a man with his nose in the air while holding an English pug dog. The pair playfully represents the snooty English and French aristocrats in Canada and their self-perceived superiority over the other.
