  1. Eat like a local in ... Montreal Poutine may still be a student staple but Kevin Gould finds fresh, inventive dishes in the city's bistros, delis and micro-breweries Kevin Gould The Guardian, Saturday June 7 2008 Slow food ... find friendly service and fresh food as part of Montreal's creative food scene. Photograph: Rudy Sulgan/Corbis I start my search for the fresh local tastes of Montreal at Marché Jean-Talon (7075 Casgrain Ave between De Castelnau and Jean-Talon metro). This is not some bourgeois foodie faux-farmers' market. Held indoors in winter, the market spills outside at this time of year, with countless eat-ins, takeaways, wine shops and stalls, busy with people expecting (and getting) high-quality, well-priced, local, seasonal produce. As with the rest of Montreal's food and drink culture, someone has done a marvellous job of inculcating the virtues of the Slow Food movement, without the pretentious nonsense we're often served up in Europe. Montrealers are disarmingly friendly. A cheerful tubby bloke munching a pickled cucumber on a stick invites me to his restaurant, a minute away from the market. Jean-Philippe's Kitchen Galerie (60 rue Jean-Talon Est,+514 315 8994, no website) has no waiters: you're served by one of the three chefs who cook your dinner. He pours me a glass of excellent red from L'Orpailleur in the eastern townships, which has the grace of a French pinot noir, and the energy of a Californian one. "We're not sommeliers," he smiles, "but we know how to drink!" They sure know how to cook, too. Minestrone with chorizo and calves' sweetbreads with soft-shell crab give a flavour of Jean-Philippe's full-on stance on food. The standout main course is a massive côte de boeuf with tarragon sauce and roast veg. You can "super-size" it with truffles and foie gras. Gloriously, ridiculously rich. Strawberry salad with basil syrup and 7-Up jelly completes the feast. The most creative, interesting food scenes in town are mostly in Le Plateau and Mile End, where you find a mixture of ethnic communities, students and sophisticates. I loved Maison Cakao (5090 rue Farbre, corner of rue Laurier, +514 598 2462) for its cupcakes and brownies, and Le Fromentier (1375 rue Laurier Est), where the bread and charcuterie are at least as good as anything you'll find in Paris. Fairmount Bagel (74 rue Fairmount Ouest, fairmountbagel.com, open 24 hours, 365 days) is a tiny local institution that hand-makes 18 varieties and bakes them in wood ovens. Another institution worth its reputation is Schwartz's (3895 blvd St Laurent, +514 842 4813, schwartzsdeli.com, all you can eat $15. No reservations, expect to stand in line), whose smoked meat - think salt beef with deeper flavour - is sensational and worth queuing for. Order your meat "lean" unless you're in with a cardiologist, and eat too much of it with gorgeous dark brown fries, crunchy pickles and a soda. Around the corner, Le Reservoir (9 rue Duluth Est, +514 849 7779) is a micro-brewery with a kitchen. It is the most happening place in the area for Sunday brunch - expect fresh cranberry scones with yoghurt; cod cheeks and chips with home-made ketchup; fried eggs and smoked bacon over sublime Yorkshire pudding. Poutine is a Quebecois speciality, consisting of oily french fries strewn with curd cheese and smothered in salty gravy. Oddly comforting, and excellent for mopping up alcohol, together with every last drop of saliva in your mouth. The Montreal Pool Room (1200 blvd St Laurent), an appealingly grungy, noisy and popular diner, is a good place to try it. If poutine is old-school Montreal cuisine, the Cluny ArtBar (257 rue Prince, +514 866 1213, cluny.info) is its new wave. Cluny is in the centre of town, only a short walk from the touristy joints of the old town. It's near the riverside, attached to a gallery in an ex-foundry. Come here for generous, innovative salads and grills. A few steps away, Le Cartet (106 rue McGill, +514 871 8887) is everything you'd ever want for a buzzy, Scandinavian-smart take on the communal canteen. Great for lunch, Le Cartet has a deli attached and also offers a blowout Sunday brunch buffet, where you can nurse the hangover you nurtured the night before at Pullman (3424 du Parc ave, +514 288 7779, pullman-mtl.com), the gastro bar du choix for Montreal's beautiful people. They're serious about their wine at Pullman, but also mix a mean cosmopolitan. Try tapas like venison tartare with chips, tuna sashimi with pickled cucumber salad, mini bison burgers and roasted marrow bones with veal cheeks. Were Pullman in London, it would be double the price and snooty. Here, it is honest, exciting and fun. As Montreal reinvents itself as a multicultural, modern city, so its young chefs have thrown off the shackles of classical French cuisine. My favourite example of this pared-down, matter-of-fact excellence was in the 10-table neighbourhood Bistro Bienville (4650 rue de Mentana, +512 509 1269, bistrobienville.com). There are no starters or mains, just whatever's good today. They'll fix you a stunning seafood platter, grill you a beautiful piece of fish, and roast you a perfect fat joint of beef. I also ate excellent local cheeses, drank fantastic wine, and thought that if I lived in Montreal, I'd be in here every day. Instead of parading a love of good food and drink as accessories to an ostentatious life, Montrealers celebrate the joys of the table with the matter-of-fact verve born of living half the year in the teeth of an Arctic gale. · Canadian Affair (020-7616 9184, canadianaffair.com) flies Gatwick-Montreal from £99 one way inc tax. The stylish La Place d'Armes (+512 842 1887, hotelplacedarmes.com) has rooms for around £125 including breakfast, cheese and wine and hammam.

  2. http://www.newswire.ca/news-releases/montreal-now-a-member-of-the-world-tourism-cities-federation-575257221.html MONTRÉAL, April 11, 2016 /CNW Telbec/ - Montréal is now officially a member of the World Tourism Cities Federation (WTCF). This non-profit organization is a select club made up of the world's leading tourism cities, such as Los Angeles, Paris, Berlin and Barcelona. Initiated in 2012 by Beijing, its primary objective is to promote exchanges between top international destinations and share tourism development experience. With its headquarters in China, the organization is committed to improving the attractiveness of tourism cities and promoting harmonious economic and social development in these centres. "We are delighted to see that Montréal has a seat at the table with the world's biggest tourism superpowers. This is an excellent opportunity to position our city among the very best urban destinations on the planet," said Denis Coderre, Mayor of Montréal. "Montréal will have the chance to draw inspiration from these reputed destinations to enhance its tourism potential. In addition to participating in discussions, we will seize the opportunity to forge closer ties with various Chinese institutions. China is an important market for Montréal, with very promising tourism and economic opportunities," added Yves Lalumière, President and CEO of Tourisme Montréal. With new direct flights to China and increased economic missions to the country, Montréal is now in an excellent position to attract more tourists from this rapidly developing country. Moreover, tourist traffic from China is expected to increase 15% annually for the next three years. About Tourisme Montréal Tourisme Montréal is responsible for providing leadership in the concerted efforts of hospitality and promotion in order to position the "Montréal" destination on leisure and business travel markets. It is also responsible for developing Montréal's tourism product in accordance with the ever-changing conditions of the market.

  7. Bonjour à tous, Mon nom est François. Je suis moi aussi passionné de projets immobiliers, mais plus pour le point de vue investissement. D'ici 10 ans, j'aimerais avoir 5 condos que je louerais Mais je ne fais que commencer. Je suis présentement à la recherche de mon premier condo. J'ai 21 ans. Suis-je trop jeune? Pourrais-je avoir quand même une bonne hypothèque? J'ai visité lelowney.ca and le loft imperial. J'ai failli acheté LE condo qui restait au lelowney (en deçà du chiffre magique de 180,000$, pour le rabais). J'ai finalement décidé de consulter un agent immobilier. Était-ce une bonne idée? Mon agent a une excellent réputation, surtout pour la région de montréal. Il est très compréhensif. Malgré tout je crains de payer plus cher que si j'achète directement du fabriquant. Tout judicieux conseil est grandement apprécié! Merci beaucoup! François
  8. Une note que je viens de recevoir en tant que fournisseur du Hilton Montréal Aéroport. Nous désirons vous informer que la gestion du Hilton Montréal Aéroport menée par Hilton Hotels Corporation sera officiellement terminée le 22 octobre 2008. Cet hôtel n’aura donc plus d’affiliation avec la marque Hilton. Northstar Hospitality, les propriétaires actuels de cette propriété, géreront cet hôtel eux-mêmes. Nous apprécions grandement notre relation avec vous et nous anticipons le plaisir de continuer à vous offrir un excellent service. Ça ne dit rien d'autre comme une nouvelle affiliation ou bien un nouveau nom la seule chose que je peux voir c'est le nouveau courriel de mon contact qui est au whg.com C'est quand même bizarre de recevoir ça le 2 jours avant la date de fin d'affiliation.

  14. Etes-vous aller au Mondial de la bière cette année? C'était excellent, mais malheureusement le concept est victime de son succès: l'espace n'était pas assez grand pour accueillir tout le monde. Je ne sais pas si les organisateurs peuvent avoir plus grand pour l'année prochaine.

  17. L’indice Jobboom pour le Québec crève le plafond. 10:29 | Anne Robert, LesAffaires.com Jamais pendant les dix dernières années, la situation de l’emploi n’a été aussi favorable au Québec. L’indice Jobboom a atteint le seuil de 96,9%, lui valant la mention « excellent ». Malgré une perte nette de 2 200 emplois en mai, l’indice continue à monter sous l’influence du poids saisonnier. Depuis 12 mois l’emploi a augmenté de 2,0% au Québec, portée en avant par Montréal qui atteint la mention « excellent » avec 93,0%. Dans le secteur des services, l’hébergement, la restauration, l’information, la culture et les loisirs ont le vent en poupe. Mais le secteur du commerce élimine des emplois. Le secteur de la fabrication continue de progresser. Même le secteur manufacturier n’a perdu que 1 000 emplois contre 9 600 au cours de la période précédente. Avec 5 300 emplois de plus, la construction repart, ainsi que les services publics (+5 000). En Ontario, l’indice reste « favorable » à 85,7%. C’est surtout la région de Toronto qui ralentit. Après une période dynamique pour l’emploi de novembre 2006 à février 2007, la métropole s’essouffle et a perdu 13 700 postes depuis trois mois.
