Hellospank, you certainly get around. Yellowknife, Calgary, and now Montreal. You've seen more regions of Canada than most Canadians.

Montréal is beautiful.

It's the only french-speaking city where nobody has ever spoken to me in French!

And right now I could have some snow, got some sunburn and now it's hot even in the air conditioner!

Yeah, I know that 1/3 of the city's pop. speaks English, but you know, French is still majority, so I expected most of the people to speak French with me heh. Well, but in Quebec City I had enough French for my Canadian trip.

It's a lovely town, and the temperatures must have been about perfect for you!

well I can understand why Canadians would visit Montreal just for the weekend, even during wintertime, but I myself would never travel there in the midst of winter!! only NYC and that's on Xmas

I'd love to come in fall or spring

Maybe because i love winter and despise spring and summer?

Hellospank25 probably took some of these pics the morning after Xmas or New Year's Eve plus the fact that it surely was damned cold.
I like these pics except that they remind me how cold it is outside !! Today is the coolest it has been in a week and the temp is around -10celsius !!
