  1.

  2. I'm starting this thread to inquire more about the relationship between the city of Montreal and the province of Quebec. Let me start with some of my observations. Having lived almost 6 years in this city it seems to me that people from Montreal are pretty much split into two categories: Those who consider themselves Quebeckers (mostly francophones) and those who consider themselves Montrealers (mostly anglophones). The former seem to know a lot about the history of Quebec, while the latter know that there used to be a famous restaurant where the Hotel St-Martin now stands, and are informed of at least one major urban development on the island. I find this division to be a bit dangerous, and very similar to the relationship between Quebec and the ROC, though in a smaller scale. During my time here I have come to understand a bit more the need for Quebec to separate from the ROC (almost every person from outside of Canada has been explained this conflict as a complete joke before coming here). However I feel that if Quebec were to leave Canada, the "Montrealers" I described above would not be very happy. Not because they consider themselves to be Canadian, but because they feel Quebec has never really cared about the problems of this city as much as a province is supposed to care about its largest and most important urban centre. Do my observations make sense to you guys?
  3. So we lose another head office. Medtronic buying CryoCath 9/25/2008 9:25:48 AM Comments (0) Post-Bulletin and news service reports Medtronic Inc. is paying about $400 million to buy a Canadian medical device company that has worked with Mayo Clinic. This morning, Minneapolis-based medical device maker Medtronic announced that it is buying Montreal-based CryoCath Technologies Inc. CryoCath has accepted the offer of $8.75 per share, about $380 million total. CyroCath makes a heart catheter used to treat atrial fibulation. Mayo Clinic participated in a clinical study, along with Massachusetts General Hospital in Boston, of CryoCath's Arctic Front catheter. Dr. Douglas Packer of Mayo Clinic presented the results of the study at the Annual International Boston Atrial Fibrillation Symposium in 2006. In today's announcement, Medtronic explained why it is interested in CyroCath. "Medtronic estimates that up to five million patients worldwide are impacted by atrial fibrillation," said Pat Mackin of Medtronic. "Medtronic and physicians are interested in procedures that are safer, faster and less complex so that more patients can benefit from treatment."
