  1. I made all of the generic avatars on this website. http://www.mtlurb.com/forums/profile.php?do=editavatar As my right to post in the political section has been withdrawn, I am now revoking this website's right to use the avatars I have provided. I ask that all those who are using an avatar found in the avatar gallery to stop using these avatars immediatley. They are my intellectual property.
  2. Why did you vote no? I have spoken freely. I'm on no political organization's payroll.
  3. Should Freedom of Speech be allowed on mtlurb.com?
  4. ..................................

  5. I personally really like 30 St. Mary Axe in London. Is this the building you are talking about in Barcelona? They don't look anything alike.
  6. Huge fan of the movies. I will go for sure.
  7. I always find it strange that streets in Quebec named after people usually seem to be as follows: Rue(Boul./Chemin/Av., etc) First name -(Hyphen) Lastname. Boul. René-Lévesque, Boul. Henri-Bourassa, Av. Christophe-Colomb, etc. In English-speaking places, streets usually only use the last name (occasionally the full name, but it is never hyphenated). Lévesque Blvd., Bourassa Blvd.., Columbus Ave., etc.
  8. Those are all proper names. Nobody translates proper names unless there is a very widely used variant. The Gazette does translate some other street names: -Park Avenue rather than Parc Avenue. -Mount Royal Avenue rather than Mont-Royal Avenue -Pine Avenue instead of Des Pins Avenue Of course, there were some other commonly used names until only very recently: St. James St. instead of St. Jacques St. St. Lawrence Blvd. instead of St. Laurent Blvd. etc. You'll actually still hear old anglos call those streets by those names. I prefer Dorchester Boulevard.
  9. This is the style of post-modern that I like. Wells-Fargo Building, Minneapolis

  11. He's updated his video! (warning loud classical music) There are quite a few that I have no clue what they are? -Tower next to 400 Sherbrooke Ouest -Tower near the new Marriott Courtyard -Towers near Viger Station -Low-rise Project right next to Hydro-Quebec -Building along Berri (?) -Towers where the Planetarium is now -Project on Rene-Levesque Ouest (maybe near Guy).. Probably the 1475 Rene-Levesque ? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GtV67B3ApcA?hd=1

  14. I notice that nobody has given any updates on the Casino yet this year! You can see the progress from St. Lambert. (St. Lambert's new football field in the foreground)

  17. I saw a crane there today! Website says 55% sold.
  18. How is is any different than playing for cheap political points that there will be blood on the hands of the Conservatives if they don't give in quick enough? They did not build the bridge. And they are taking steps to assure its security. All of the planning as well as the beginning of construction took place during the Liberal government's reign (the same administration that invented the equalization program). I think it would have been pretty hard for Diefenbaker to meddle with the plans while the bridge was already under construction with a minority government! The argument is
  19. The Conservative government has been spending hundreds of millions on repairing the bridge in the past few years, and will spend hundreds of millions more over the next few years to ensure that the bridge remains safe for another 10 years. The federal government's only role here should be keeping the current one as safe and useable as possible while it is in power. What people seem to be forgetting is that you can't just decide to go to Ikea to buy a bridge and assemble it. It requires a serious amount of planning. When the Liberals planned for the construction of the Champlain bridge in
  20. Not to mention that this building is fugly.. It looks like i t was pulled out of 1990s suburbia.. And I think it might have blank walls on both sides!
