  1. MONOCLE has Montreal in 19th place as most liveable place in the World to live. You need a subscription to read it online. I read it at a magazine shop. We are in good company! http://www.monocle.com/sections/affairs/Magazine-Articles/19-Montreal/
  2. Montréal parmi les 25 villes ayant la meilleure qualité de vie Agence QMI Julie Charette 23/07/2009 16h11 - Mise à jour 23/07/2009 16h24 Palmarès - Montréal parmi les 25 villes ayant la meilleure qualité de vie Une vue de Montréal Archives En dépit de l'été maussade et de tous les scandales qui l'ont éclaboussé, Montréal se hisse au 19e rang mondial des villes ayant la meilleure qualité de vie. Le magazine londonien Monocle publie dans son édition de juillet une liste des 25 meilleures villes où vivre sur la planète. Deux seules villes canadiennes font partie de ce palmarès soit Vancouver en 14e place et Montréal au 19e rang. Le magazine souligne d'ailleurs l'ouverture d'esprit et la joie de vivre des Montréalais. Zurich au premier rang Parmi le top cinq des villes où il fait bon vivre, Zurich rafle le premier rang grâce à son excellent service de transport en commun et ses sévères mesures environnementales. Suivent dans l'ordre Copenhague, Tokyo, Munich et Helsinki. La seule ville américaine qui trouve grâce aux yeux de Monocle est Honolulu, au 11e rang. L'an dernier, Minneapolis et Portland avaient aussi une place dans ce club sélect. Monocle analyse des critères comme la vie culturelle, les transports publics, l'éducation et les politiques environnementales.
  3. (Courtesy of Monocle Magazine) 1. Munich 2. Copenhagen 3. Zurich 4. Tokyo 5. Vienna 6. Helsinki 7. Sydney 8. Stockholm 9. Honolulu 10. Madrid 11. Melbourne 12. Montreal 13. Barcelona 14. Kyoto 15. Vancouver 16. Auckland 17. Singapore 18. Hamburg 19. Paris 20. Geneva --- It is an interesting list of cities. I am happy that Honolulu beat out New York. Though New York has been growing on me. One thing certain cities I did not expect to see on this list especially: Vienna.

  5. Vancouver and Montreal among 25 most livable cities JOSH WINGROVE From Monday's Globe and Mail June 9, 2008 at 9:03 AM EDT Vancouver and Montreal are the only Canadian entries in a new list of the world's 25 most livable cities. London-based Monocle magazine, a project of Canadian-born style columnist and jet-setter Tyler Brûlé, published the list this month. Vancouver placed eighth - higher than any other North American city - while Montreal finished 16th on the list. Toronto didn't make the cut; nor did Winnipeg, where Mr. Brûlé was born. Monocle lauded Vancouver for its role in fighting climate change, increasing building density and cracking down on drug use in preparation for the 2010 Olympics. Vancouver lost marks for its high crime rate, but jumped seven spots after placing 15th in 2007. The magazine called Montreal "Canada's cultural capital." The city was credited for its strong arts community, booming gaming and aerospace industries and extensive network of free wireless Internet. It lost marks for its strained health-care system, poor recycling facilities and growing income disparity. Mr. Brûlé, who once described the only mention of Canada in Monocle's first issue as "a dig about Calgary," wrote neither synopsis. Monocle named Copenhagen the most livable city, on the strength of its green space and "sense of humour" - Mr. Brûlé wrote that synopsis. Munich, Tokyo, Zurich and Helsinki rounded out the top five. Only three U.S. cities (Honolulu, Minneapolis and Portland) made the list, which also included 14 from Europe, three from Japan, two from Australia, and one, Singapore, from Southeast Asia. High-profile cities such as London, Rome and New York were not mentioned by the magazine, which looked at smaller, user-friendly cities with vibrant arts scenes, plenty of parks and a friendly face. A similar livability study published by The Economist last summer awarded Vancouver first place, while Toronto - snubbed by Monocle - placed fifth out of 123 cities worldwide. http://www.theglobeandmail.com/servlet/story/RTGAM.20080609.wxlcities09/BNStory/lifeMain/home
  6. (just seen it in the magazine,...) try and find the online version.
  7. (Courtesy of Monocle) I don't have the full article yet. I will post it, when it comes online.
  8. Video You think Montreal has it bad. Munich they can't build higher than 100 meters because of their main Cathedral.
  9. I know its not a story about Montreal or another Canadian city, but it does have an affect on us all. Video Interesting video though. James Corner does make a good point though. If you clean something up and make it better, life comes back to that part of the city and people will pay.
  10. Happy to see Montreal back in the 2016 top 25 cities ranking by Monocle, one of my favorite magazines. Montreal is back at number 25. Unfortunately the magazine is not online so you will have to pick it up at a bookstore! https://skift.com/2016/06/22/monocles-new-quality-of-life-top-25-cities-survey-tokyo-is-tops-again/ A few takeaways from the Montreal description: Pros: SLR Cons: "Lack of diversity" Other Montreal mentions in this latest issue: Alexandraplatz and Quartier Marconi
