The Pointe Claire windmill
That's because it is part of the city's coat of arms. Here's a link to the city's website.
It's equally true that unless you are both curious, and willing to go out of your way, you might never realize that there is an actual windmill.
And unless you Google a little, you might never learn the history of the mill. The mill was built in 1710 and restored in the 1960's. There are only 18 left of the 250 windmills originally built in the province. You can find out more about three of them right here on this blog.
See what you learn when you join the ranks of the scooter commuters? All it takes is a few minutes and a Vespa.
