Quote:You seem to know so much about Montreal. Tell me, have you driven south of Westmount? South of St-Laurent and Sherbrooke? While the people you know are doing well for themselves, the facts remain. Montreal is not a rich city. Sure, people have style and on average might spend a large percentage of their income of clothes, especially since dwelling is cheap. Yet, salaries are lower, taxes are higher,etc. There's also this tendency of many Montrealers to live, unfortunetaly, over their means. This phenomenom can be found everywhere. However, to assume that Montreal is a rich city in 2004 when one has visited Toronto, Calgary, or Vancouver is ludicrous at best. In 1904, this would have been a different story.
