  1. The Argos moved to BMO Field in order to be in a smaller, more intimate and more personal stadium. They now play in the same stadium as TFC. Lots of money was spent on the stadium to make it football ready - and to add capacity for soccer games. I don't see how moving from Molson Stadium, an intimate venue that can't sellout anymore, would benefit the Als. http://bmofield.com/event/montreal-alouettes-vs-toronto-argonauts-2/

  4. L'Économie du Québec

    Most economists consider 4.0% to be "full unemployment." As you've stated, there will always be structural and frictional unemployment in any economy. The true "full unemployment" figure depends on many factors and thus 4.0% is simply a best guess. Suffice to say that getting close to "full unemployment" is a sign that the economy is booming. Falling below can lead to high inflation and other economic stresses. It's been a long time since my macroeconomic classes but I'm sure Google has a lot more information on it. Oh, and if there aren't enough people for the available jobs then companies turn to robots. Japan and SK have very high levels of automation. When the cost of automation is less than the cost of employees it's the natural decision for profit seeking companies. See the whole 15$ minimum wage debate and McDonald's response.
  5. L'Économie du Québec

    A chacun ses propres points de vue politiques. Selon les sondages courants le PQ n’as aucun espoir de gagné une majorité dans les prochains élections. Néanmoins, on ne sait jamais comment les élections vont dérouler. On disait la même chose à propos de Brexit et de Trump. (Je ne compare pas le PQ à Brexit ou à Trump – je dis simplement que même s’il parait impossible en août 2017 les déroulements politiques ne cessent pas de nous surprendre.)

  8. SNC-Lavalin completes the sale-leaseback of its headquarters in Montreal with GWL Realty Advisors for approximately $170 million Montreal June 22, 2017 SNC-Lavalin announced today that it has completed the sale of its Montreal head office building and the adjacent empty lot of land located on René-Lévesque Boulevard West for approximately $170 million to GWL Realty Advisors on behalf of institutional clients. SNC-Lavalin leases back the building for 20 years. SNC-Lavalin plans an extensive renovation project that aims to provide employees with modern workspaces designed according to best practices in efficiency, flexibility, innovation and teamwork. Consultation and planning for this project have already started. “We continue to move forward with our strategy of unlocking value from our assets in order to reinvest in our business. This sale brings several benefits, notably the opportunity to create a work environment that enhances collaboration for our Montreal-based employees, most of whom will be brought together in one main location,” said Neil Bruce, President and CEO. The decision to sell the property was made as part of SNC-Lavalin’s Operational Excellence program where we conducted a review of the company’s owned real estate portfolio that was announced during the third quarter 2016 financial results. SNC-Lavalin explored real estate opportunities that included putting the Montreal head office property on the market. This initiative led to the sale-leaseback of the head office, which will further contribute to SNC-Lavalin’s efficiency and performance as a company. By undertaking significant renovations to modernize the current workspace, the company will also strengthen its core objective to build a performance-driven culture that inspires employees to be more collaborative and enhances overall efficiency and productivity. “SNC-Lavalin is here to stay. Our long-term lease demonstrates our commitment to Montreal and to Quebec,” continued Mr. Bruce. “We have been an integral part of Montreal’s fabric for over a century, and will continue our growth from our downtown Montreal headquarters for years to come.” ABOUT SNC-LAVALIN Founded in 1911, SNC-Lavalin is one of the leading engineering and construction groups in the world and a major player in the ownership of infrastructure. From offices in over 50 countries, SNC-Lavalin's employees are proud to build what matters.

  9. 975 Lucien-L'Allier - 50 étages

    I would think that there are 2 companies: One who owns the real-estate (which was recently built) and the McDo franchisee who operates the restaurant. This is plausible - a quick consultation of the role foncier shows that the property is owned by Morton Katz, that the building was constructed in 2014 for specific restaurant purposes and has a municipal valuation of 4 851 600$. If the property owner is different from the McDo franchisee, it is also highly likely that a long-term lease was signed. Otherwise, why build a new building specifically for a fast food chain? This building comes down only if: - Same owner of both companies and the developers of 975 offer up an incredible offer that they can't refuse (also, where do you put the McDo and it's employees while 975 is going up?) - Different owners of each company and the developers of 975 offer up an incredible deal that (i) pays for the damages of the breaking of the long term lease (ii) compensates for the recent construction costs (iii) yields a better return than the long term cash flows of the rent from McDo. Personally, it's tough to see happening. Look at the small shops in front of the QDS tower and how they don't want to sell. And those are OLD building.
  10. Je voudrais simplement souligner le fait que parfois, quand des gens expriment des points de vue qui sont différente de la tienne, ce n’est pas de la mauvaise foi. Ils expriment ce qu’ils pensent est bon pour Montréal. C’est leur droit et t’as pas besoin d’être en accord. Je n’ai jamais dit que c’est à cause que je suis anglophone que je pourrai facilement déménager ailleurs. Je pourrai facilement me déplacer à cause que je suis jeune, j’œuvre dans une profession en demande et j’ai des relations à travers les États-Unis, l’Europe, l’Asie et l’Australie. Le fait que je parle l’anglais et le français me donne plus de choix. C’est toi qui as interprété mes paroles d’une autre façon. Et bien sur les francophones pourront déménager n’importe où. Et ils le font – en masse. Et c’est une perte nette pour notre métropole. Je connais beaucoup d'anciens collègues francophones et des amis universitaires francophones qui n’habitent plus à Montréal. Ils ont déménagé pour des opportunités qui n’existaient pas ici. Je ne suis pas pessimiste. Je reste ici. Je pense que nous avons pris des pas importants depuis plusieurs années et il faut continuer d’en prendre. Et je ne critique pas le fait français. Encore une fois, c’est ton façon d’interpréter mes paroles. STP, dis-moi ou est-ce que je critique le fait français? Le but de mes paroles n’était pas de critiquer la révolution tranquille, l’évolution des « maitres chez nous » ou n’importe qu’elle manifestation de la nation québécoise. J’exprimai simplement que les membres du forum veulent que Montréal soit un succès. Même si leur définition de succès et différente de la vôtre… Je suis jeune (peut-être pas jeune, mais pas vieux). J’ai grandi dans un environnement ou ta langue maternelle était et reste moins importante que tes talents et ton éthique de travail. Je sais qu’il a eu des injustices historiques. Mais ces injustices ne devraient pas infiltrés et affectés chaque poste. Je me sentais simplement frustré. Je voulais bâtir des ponts en disant que j’habite ici, que notre ville à des forces sur lesquelles nous devrions capitaliser, que chacun à son voix et apporte une dynamique et façon différente mais légitime de penser, et que nous devrions arrêter les stéréotypes. Je pense que c’est la dernière fois que je me mêlerai dans n’importe quoi quasi-politique ou sociale.
  11. As an "older millennial" bilingual anglophone who chooses to live, work and raise a family in Montreal, this topic touches a nerve. I can't stand the "angryphone this - francophone that" rhetoric because it introduces emotions into what should be a discussion based on facts. It can also get peoples' back up against the wall - which doesn't lead to a productive outcome. Here is my point of view, a point of view from someone who could easily move away (especially to Toronto, where a lot of my childhood friends now reside): - Just like any city, Montréal has it's pros and cons - Montréal competes on a national and international stage for everything from talent to HQs to new investment. We need to be better than the competition to win - Montréal is unique in North America: It is the crossroads of Europe and North America. This is our heritage and we should embrace it - The ability of most people to communicate or understand 2 of the world's major languages is a tool that I believe should be harnessed I think that everyone posting on this forum wants the best for our city. Whether someone is singing the virtues of a development or finding fault with our tax code the end goal is the same. I would ask that we stop the name calling and the angry responses that serve nothing more than to perpetuate stale stereotypes. Everyone has an opinion on what is best for Montréal and each is legitimate. I for one, am proud to live and work here. Je suis un fier montéalais. Je suis convaincu qu'en travaillant ensemble nous pourrons faire rayonner notre ville.
  12. The change since 1999 is even more dramatic. Starting with the ACC and looking north and west, there were no tall buildings west of Bay Street and south of Front. Not to mention the towers going north. I can't find any good pictures online right now but when I'll post something when I can. The viewpoint of this time reinforces the spectacular growth of the city over the last 18 years. Hopefully, Montreal's construction mini-boom continues for a long time. And building outside of the current core can help revitalize areas in their proximity.
  13. How about a list of greater GMA-based companies that are private but large enough to go public? It's much harder to build such a list but would help paint a better picture than solely one composed of public companies. There are very few non-resource Canadian (and Quebec) IPOs. The market loves non-resource growth companies: Look no further than Stingray and Canada Goose. (NB. I'm referring to the initial market reaction to the IPO - not the longevity of the stock and its daily price fluctuations).
  14. I don't have specifics so please don't jump on (and feel free to add the relevant comparative facts) but I think it's more the cost that people are upset about. Only the thickest of obstructionists are against the idea of putting our architectural heritage on stage in a beautiful and striking way. The cost is where people get upset ~$40M for 10 years ($4M per year). I recall hearing that other bridge lighting projects, such at the Brooklyn Bridge and the Golden Gate, cost far less.
