  4. Vive Montreal! It may not be Paris, but city is awash with Old World charm, warmth for Christmas By Mary Milz Special to The Courier-Journal Some say if you can't afford Paris, try Montreal, the most European city in North America. Not quite. Montreal is no Paris. And thanks to the strong Canadian dollar, it's not the bargain it once was, either. But it's still well worth the trip even on those nippy December days when temperatures hover in the 20s. With its strong French Catholic heritage, Montreal dresses in its Christmas finest and lights up for the holidays, encouraging visitors to join in the revelry. Montreal transported this Midwesterner worlds away without jumping time zones, without confusion over currency and without need of a pocket translator. It's just a two-hour fight from Chicago, Canadian coins pretty much mirror American, and while French is the primary language, everyone we encountered spoke English too. Montreal is Canada's second-largest city. More than 3.6 million people call the greater metropolitan area home. At first glance, Montreal stands out as a modern city with its gleaming skyscrapers, upscale shopping and internationally known restaurants. But bundle up and stroll its vibrant and varied neighborhoods and you find Montreal oozes Old World warmth and charm. Montreal provides the perfect three- to five-day getaway for travelers wanting big-city excitement without big-city hassles. Culturally diverse and rich in history, Montreal offers everything from top-notch museums and centuries-old churches to fabulous food and lively night life. Travelers intent on holiday shopping may feel giddy at the options. Saint Catherine Street, one of the longest streets in North America, is home to scores of trendy boutiques as well as the city's most prominent retailers, including Ogilvy. The landmark department store is famous for its bagpipers, who announce the noon hour each day; and its legendary Christmas windows, which come alive with animated toy animals. Shoppers wanting edgier, funkier gifts will enjoy browsing Saint Laurent Street. And if it's too frigid outdoors, shoppers can escape to the underground city. Twenty-two miles of subterranean walkways link shopping centers, boutiques, restaurants, cinemas, hotels and the subway. No need for a rental car. The Metro is fast, cheap and easy to navigate. Underground trains make stops every five to 10 minutes, taking passengers to 68 stations across the city. A single fair is $2.75; a three-day pass, $17, is also good for buses. Several police officers assured us it was safe at all hours. Montreal also enjoys a reputation for being well-kept. A recent survey by Mercer Human Resources Consulting rated it the 10th cleanest city in the world. Beware; this city takes its clean image seriously. As of last spring, anyone caught flinging trash on the ground faced a fine of up to $1,000! In addition to its cleanliness, Montreal prides itself on diversity, reflected in its assorted ethnic neighborhoods ranging from Chinatown to the Latin Quarter (also great areas for finding fun and unusual gifts). One afternoon, we wandered into the Mile-End neighborhood and stopped in the Fairmount Bagel Bakery where it's nothing but bagels and matzahs. It has been in business since 1919. Employees roll the bagels by hand, boil them and then bake them in wood-burning ovens. Scrumptious! No wonder they turn out more than 1,500 a day. We walked across the street to a small market selling imported cheeses, marinades, olive oil and specialty chocolates, striking up a conversation with owner Luigi DiVito. When we asked what he thought distinguished Montreal from other Canadian cities, such as Toronto, he said, "People are very open, very friendly, very welcoming. There's more life here. We like to live. The food and restaurants are amazing." Our stomachs agreed. Montreal is known for its fine cuisine, and with close to 6,000 restaurants, the choices are daunting. While French-style restaurants and bistros were once the mainstay, diners now find a hearty selection of Middle Eastern, North African, Asian and Latin-American eateries, to name a few. Our hotel's concierge proved especially helpful in narrowing the choices. While we found prices comparable with large metropolitan cities, many Montreal restaurants offer table d'hote or fixed-price meals. You can get a three- or four-course meal for slightly more than the price of an a la carte main course. After a week of experiencing Montreal and its popular attractions, we left enamored and singing a decidedly different tune: Even if you can afford Paris, try Montreal.

  6. La chaîne Pharmaprix prévoit poursuivre sa croissance au Québec Il y a 1 jour TORONTO — La plus importante chaîne de pharmacies au Canada, Shoppers Drug Mart (TSX:SC), estime être en mesure de prendre encore plus de place au Québec - où elle exploite la bannière Pharmaprix -, ainsi que dans l'Ouest et en Ontario, a déclaré jeudi le chef de la direction de l'entreprise, Jurgen Schreiber, lors de l'assemblée générale annuelle des actionnaires. Il y a un an, l'entreprise torontoise venait d'inaugurer son 1000e établissement. Elle en compte maintenant 1095, dont 551 en Ontario, mais l'essentiel de cette croissance a été générée au Québec. "A la fin de 2006, nous avions 102 magasins au Québec. Nous en avons maintenant 140. C'est un changement important", a dit Jurgen Schreiber. Le Québec est un marché en pleine croissance pour Shoppers, mais la compagnie doit composer avec la concurrence féroce du Groupe Jean Coutu (TSX:PJC), qui compte 330 établissements au Québec, en Ontario et au Nouveau-Brunswick, et qui contrôle près du tiers de l'importante chaîne américaine Rite Aid. Ailleurs au pays, Shoppers lutte contre le groupe Katz, qui détient 1800 pharmacies au Canada et aux Etats-Unis. Si Katz compte plus d'établissements que Shoppers, il embauche trois fois moins d'employés (15 000 contre 47 000) et génère environ 1 milliard $ de moins en revenus annuels. M. Schreiber a ajouté que le Québec représente un marché de plus en plus lucratif pour Shoppers Drug Mart, puisqu'il s'agit "de la deuxième province en importance (au chapitre de la population) et que les marchés de la santé et des prescriptions y sont très développés". C'est pour cela, dit-il, que son entreprise accorde autant d'importance à la Belle Province. En Ontario, la province la plus peuplée du pays, on retrouve un établissement de Shoppers par 25 000 habitants. M. Schreiber croit que sa compagnie peut faire encore mieux et augmenter sa pénétration grâce à la popularité de son nom. Au Québec, le ratio est d'environ un établissement par 60 000 personnes, contre un par 35 000 personnes dans l'Ouest. "Nous avons encore devant nous au moins cinq années d'ouvertures de nouveaux magasins, de rénovations de magasins et d'agrandissements de magasins", a-t-il lancé aux actionnaires. La semaine dernière, Shoppers Drug Mart a dévoilé un bénéfice de 101 millions $ au premier trimestre, en progression de 19 pour cent par rapport aux 85 millions $ engrangés un an plus tôt. Ses ventes pendant cette période ont été de 2 milliards $, contre 1,8 milliard $ l'année précédente. Jeudi après-midi, le titre de Shoppers valait 54,46 $, en hausse de 13 cents, à la Bourse de Toronto.
