  1. There was another thread with an old picture of a Citroen DS parked next to the Sun Life building, circa 1971. I forget the thread though. Here's an ad with the same car driving around Montreal! The license plate looks like a 1968 Quebec plate (white on blue). It sure doesn't look like any 1970's plate, and DS/Citroen Canada stopped around 1974... Another one but less memorable city views:
  2. Montreal to triple some parking fines Last Updated: Monday, August 17, 2009 | 2:39 PM ET CBC News The price of parking illegally in Montreal could triple by the fall. The city says it's seeing more and more problems with people parking illegally, and plans to boost ticket prices starting in October. Executive committee member Sammy Forcillo says current fines simply aren't big enough to stop people from parking where they shouldn't. He says with some parking lots charging $18 to park, some drivers are choosing to take a chance on getting a $30 parking ticket. The city says it's most concerned with people parking in places that are completely illegal, such as near an intersection where a parked car might block visibility. In those cases, the city plans to hand out $100 tickets come Oct. 1. "If there's a car in front or if a person wants to stop there it's a matter of public safety, and for the handicapped I think it's common sense also. Handicapped people need to be respected in our society so that's the main idea," said Claude Dauphin, the executive committee member responsible for public security. The fine for cars parked at expired meters or in a designated handicap parking spot will also rise, to $60. Forcillo says this simply brings Montreal in line with many neighbouring cities. It's estimated the increase in fines will net the city an additional $13 or $14 million, but Forcillo denies this is a cash grab. He says it's simply about getting people to respect the rules. City council is expected to vote on the issue next week.
  3. Why doesn't this city have more multi-level community parking? At least people can stop parking on the streets and needing to move their cars on different days or shovelling or even having their cars towed. Are we such a lazy bunch of morons, that can't walk 5-15 mins to get to our car? I know in some parts of the city, it be hard to do something like that, but it would be nice if they did it. Would be less cars on the road (parked) you can have more traffic flowing. It would be nice to have Sainte Catherine St either 4-lanes or two lanes in each direction. There is even some streets that are so small, people park on both sides and it is impossible to drive down. I really hope the city does something about this in the next 20-50 years.
