  3. I just received an automatic lease renewal notice from my building. They said they renewed it because they did not receive any notice of cancelation from me. However, they never sent me any notice asking me to decide whether or not to renew my lease. I know about the 3-month rule but I forgot and they did not remind me. I haven't talked to them about this yet (I plan to do it tomorrow) but I was wondering if there is any way I will be able to cancel the new lease term. Is there any law that protects me in this case? Most buildings I have lived in before send a letter asking whether I would like to renew the lease. I believe this building takes advantage of students who don't know the 3-month rule, because they have a $100 fee for lease transfer, so even if I find someone to take the lease, I will have to pay.
  4. http://www.tableaudebordmontreal.ca/alire/alire02/default1.en.html Montréal: a gift to the regions Picher, Claude These days, as soon as you travel a few miles outside Montréal, it’s all the rage to complain bitterly about the “sins and failings” of the metropolis. Here, I’m using the expression that appeared yesterday on the front page of La Presse to introduce the extensive report by my colleague Caroline Touzin on the perception of Montréal in the regions. On this subject, it appears that the regions are ruthless: “Montréal and its inhabitants are guilty of arrogance, blindness, selfishness, and ignorance,” no less! Yet, the reality is this: the regions can howl as much as they want, they’re lucky to have Montréal – and its money. On average, Montrealers are richer than other Quebecers. Because of our progressive tax system, they also pay more taxes. From Gaspé to Rouyn-Noranda and from Baie-Comeau to Huntingdon, the tax dollars of Montrealers pay to build roads, schools, and hospitals; they help finance welfare and unemployment benefits, old age pensions, and other social assistance programs. Without those dollars, the regions could simply not afford to build and maintain infrastructures or provide the same services. By a conservative estimate, we can affirm that at least $4 billion taken from the pockets of Montrealers are redistributed in the regions. Notwithstanding the disputes between city and suburban dwellers, from an economic perspective, Montréal and its suburbs complement each other perfectly. Metropolitan Montréal – or the Island of Montréal and its immediate surroundings (Laval, the South shore from Châteauguay to Boucherville and the northern rim from Deux-Montagnes to Repentigny) – has 3.2 million inhabitants, or 42% of the Quebec population. In 2004, the latest year for which complete tax data is available, the Quebec Government collected a total of $19.6 billion in taxes on personal income. Greater Montréal alone accounted for 48% of this amount, or $9.4 billion. If Montrealers carried a tax burden equal to their demographic weight, therefore, they would pay $1.2 billion less in taxes. But, as we have just observed, they are wealthier, and it is thus only fair that they contribute more to tax revenues. These figures are based on statistics provided by Revenu Québec, which calculates the taxes paid by each administrative region, each municipalité régionale de comté (MRC), and each municipality with 20,000 residents or more. We are just talking about provincial taxes, here. The federal government does not publish such detailed statistics, but because of the similarity of the two tax systems, we can reasonably estimate that Montrealers also send Ottawa $1.2 billion more than called for by their demographic weight. So that brings us to $2.4 billion. The federal government’s three major program expenditures are for old age pensions, transfers to the provinces, and unemployment benefits. Because of the exodus of young people, most regions are aging more quickly than is Montréal. Unemployment hits the regions harder than it does Montréal. And, on a per capita basis, the provincial government’s expenditures are higher in the regions. Put all that together and you don’t need a Ph.D. in math to figure out where the $1.2 billion in federal money is spent. And that’s not all. So far, we’ve only been talking about personal income taxes. This year, Quebec companies will send almost $10 billion in taxes to Ottawa and Quebec City. Given the concentration of businesses in Greater Montréal, we can again make a conservative estimate that 55% of that amount will come from Montréal. Given the demographic weight of our region, that’s $1.3 billion too much. Which brings our total to $3.7 billion. Since, on average, Montrealers earn more than other Quebec residents, they also spend more and pay higher provincial and federal sales taxes. There are no regional statistics on this subject, but Montréal consumers easily send $500 million too much to the two levels of government – based, once again, on their demographic weight. Montréal therefore makes a net transfer of more than $4 billion to the regions, year after year. Of course, this is exactly how it should be. By definition, a rich region has a larger revenue-raising capacity than a poor one, and the system is specifically designed to ensure the redistribution of wealth. But still: before calling Montrealers a bunch of selfish pigs, the whiners in the regions might at least remember that Montréal is the real economic engine of Quebec and that, without the tax money of Montrealers, many of them would have a lot more to complain about.

    Road rage

    Worst thing on the planet. That is one of the main reasons why I do not drive in this city. I swear, if it happens again. I am going to register for a handgun. If anyone see's a black Madza 3 on the left side backdoor (window) with Zoo York on it. Also it has an Albi Mazda sticker on the back of the car, can't remember which side though. Please take down the license plate and send it to me. Thanks. I'd probably feel safer in Israel then here.

  8. I couldn't find a thread about this subject so I'm making it. What are some bands/singers/soloists from Montreal (and Quebec in general) that you like? French, English or any other language is ok. Send even the obvious ones! If there is already a thread about this subject then just point to it and remove this one if necessary Thanks a lot!

    Virtual #

    What program do you guys use? I am right now using Google Voice. Costing me a pretty penny but it works. I can't wait for it to work in Canada. True it probably cheaper to use Skype. The way I have it setup. I'm using a proxy from the US so I can access Google Voice. After paying $7/month for a US#. Having it forward to my phone and Google Voice. Its pretty cool. Its nice being able to have sms being sent to my email now Lets see how well I can get this to work (steps) 1. Virtual # forwards calls to my Montreal #. 2. Google Voice access my Virtual # and substitutes it with its own. So I can call and send sms from my laptop. I just found out I get 60 minutes a month for $7 Guess I will have to have DND on. I guess $7/month is pretty good for unlimited SMS to/from the US. I just wish it would work with Mexico and South America Now thats going to cost me an arm and a leg.
