  • one time in past i was in montreal and what i´ve seen were vergy good. wonderfull city.

  • I live in and love Montreal but this has got to be a mistake. We seem to continue to remove green space from the Island and are procrastinating on transit issues and most big projects get called green but are really just shrubs and grass window dressing. I wish we were in the top5!
