Héritage Montréal is adamant that the Horse Palace must be preserved. The city of Montreal was built by horses, the principle mode of transportation until the 1930s and the power behind snow clearing and street cleaning. The Griffintown Horse Palace Foundation is also fighting to save the site and have the stables renovated and made open to the public, an undertaking that would require a significant cash input.
