You do know that Toronto and Montreal are two completely different cities. Each with it's own seperate language.

We share the same languages, except that people in Montreal are more likely to be bilingual.

Don't forget that the official language of Quebec is French, and it's the same for Montréal, but it's true, there is a very small MINORITY of people who talk only English. Those people live in the west side of the city, and they are most adult because there is an obligatory french class in every schools (french or english) in Quebec, and there is an obligatory english class in every french schools of the province. In short, the majority of the people always talk French, but they know English too.


Let's go back to the principal subject. I have to tell you a very bad news...

The casino is officially cancelled

There was two days, the gouvernement of Quebec said to LotoQuébec (a public company, owner of all lottery games in Québec and all the casinos of the province) that they should wait 18 month to revalue the impact of a casino in this very poor district.

Yesterday, Le Cirque du Soleil said that 18 month is too long and they retired of the project.

30 minutes after, LotoQuébec confirm that the project is cancelled, because this type of casino (casino-circus) can't stay alive without Le Cirque du Soleil.

LotoQuébec will search a new place and a new concept for the new casino that they really want to build.

There is no just bad news, there is also good!!!

-----------------------

Saputo Stadium
Approved
New Stadium of the Montreal's soccer team L'Impact
15000 seats
Situate close to the New Casino who was cancelled yesterday





----------------------

A big entertaining centre
We don't know many things about this project, just that will have a big indoor fair
The project would have connected the Saputo Stadium to the New casino, but ...

The 6 first floor will be the private hospital, for the 29 others, I think it's gonna be condo or office space.

There's more to wealth than booms or money, and this city's definitely the liveliest canadian one and is faring much better than the other cities here.

The proposed projects scare me. I cringe whenever I see a proposal in excess of a dozen floors. This city would probably look even better had it stuck to its 1910s Washington-DC-like central plan with shorter buildings fully occupying their respective lots. I'm glad this city's the type that ended up turning down three proposals of the CN Tower before the rail giant got the message and ended up taking their sky-high project somewhere else for good.

That highrise health complex looks too much like the IBM building at Réné-Lévesque W and Stanley. I wish this city would snap out of its mimicking airport termini, far too many recent buildings here try to take after airports.

Cheers,
Chris

Mixed feelings on this -- the building and its potential for helping tourism on the one hand, but the reality that most visitors are locals and it's a regressive tax on the poor on the other hand. It is a questionable practice -- grabbing the welfare money back with loto machines in taverns and a casino in a poor neighborhood.

The Mackay tower and the cultural complex OSM are charming buildings, although the Casino don´'t like me, i see it a bit kitsch.

mektwist the tower is approved and the construction will start in august and will finish in 2008.

The tower will be on corner of La Montagne and René Levesque, next to the Crystal de la Montagne.
