Probably a little known fact is that this image of the works of the first line of the Santiago Monorail being built by the government was recently made public.

That's the statue of Catholic priest Emiliano Tardif near the Hermanos Patiño Bridge in Santiago. Hopefully it will be repaired and reinaugurated along with the monorail.

What many probably don't know is that Emiliano Tardif was actually a Canadian. The statue was part of a small park dedicated to Emiliano Tardif. In addition there is a street and a school with his name in Santiago.


Is he the only Canadian with a statue in the DR?

Reminder: This thread is about a statue and if there are other statues of Canadians in the DR. This is not about religion, the Catholic church, etc.

Two of my daughters went to the school that honor's his name.
