Mirabel 101

If you were reading Canadian newspapers in the 70s, you know this already.

A current thread at Metafilter is covering this white-elephant of public works projects, while agreeing that the 1970s probably marks a golden decade of graphic communications. The airport cost a ridiculous amount of money, and was an utter failure, as the thread shows.

However, no one on the thread pointed out that if you take the map of the expropriated area and rotate it to the left by about 50°, its an unmistakable image of a robber. Not only was Quebec unparalleled in corruption those days, they even made it look good.
