(no, this has nothing to do with Montreal except that they are the "welcome to Montreal" flowers from my mum)
1- I really don't understand the point of the no right on red traffic rule. Can anyone tell me what the reasoning is? Bueller?
2- Too much smoking. Seriously. Not sure why people love to smoke so much here.
3- Breakfast! They love breakfast and brunch here. This is a good thing, because I too love breakfast and brunch.
4- Probably the most passionate hockey fans around- even about pre-season.
5- It rains just as much in the fall here as it does in Ottawa.
6- The metro is quite efficient. Too bad it isn't air conditioned (and it won't be any time soon), but a least it goes places.
7- IGA! There are IGA stores all over the place. I'm sure they are really just Sobey's stores, but since I worked at IGA in university, I like seeing the logo. Although their uniforms are STILL terrible.
8- Did I mention there's too much smoking? Yes? Well, it deserves a second mention.
9- The traffic sucks, but at least the drivers are assertive.
10- So far, no one has laughed at my French. And that is a good thing.
