Montreal is the Birmingham/Wolverhampton of Canada, is it not?
Same ugly architecture and buildings.
Both areas are neglected.
Both areas are polluted.
Similar racial demographics (blacks and Muslims).
Both populations are sort poor.
Both are bland.
Both have ugly people and fat trashy women.
I don't know WHY people compare Montreal to Paris or even New York. Both are thriving world class cities with economies. Montreal is an oversized dull town pretending to be a city!
