    Ontario Line (was Relief Line South, in Design)

    I'm reading this and I'm genuinely trying to understand how corruption could have played a bigger role in Montreal's lack of transit investments in the last decades, compare to lack of political will, and I don't get it. It seems to me that you are blaming every shortcomings in Montreal's...

    Roads: Gardiner Expressway

    Hum, I think you haven't been to Montreal in a long time. Going from McGill to Old Montreal would mean that you walk Sherbrooke street from west to east, then Union south to Phillips Square, then down Beaver Hall, which ends in beautiful Victoria Square in Old Montreal, from there you can...

    Saks Fifth Avenue Flagship (Queen & Yonge)

    The delay for some large chains to open shop in Montreal has less to do with the market's potentiel (luxury or not) than with law 101. H&M and Banana Republic, for exemple, opened late in the province because they first had to establish a translation department for all their literature, be it...

    Montreal: Canada's most American city?

    Very well put Shon. @Long Island Mike There is not that much tension anymore between English and French in Montreal. This is very much a media thing fed by some extremists on both camps. Most Montrelers have evolved beyond that.

    Montreal: Canada's most American city?

    Montrealers hate the French? Talk about a gross generalisation. That would be exactly like saying that Torontonians hate the British. Some of us have some problems with snob Parisians, but who doesn't on this planet, including non-Parisian French themselves?
