Affectionately known as La Pointe, Pointe-Saint-Charles is a working-class neighbourhood in southwest Montreal. Once among the biggest industrial districts in Canada, today it is under attack by real estate developers. With luxury condo towers springing up like weeds along the Lachine Canal, residents of La Pointe are being priced out of their own neighbourhood in a real estate boom of epic proportions.
