Since everyone here loves Maclean's :rotfl:

#24 Montréal, Que. 28.54% above Canadian average

 

What the hell is going on in BC? (and secondarily, Alberta, Red Deer? Seriously?!)

 

I liked one of the comments:

 

This is an insult of the British Columbia Nation. We demand an apology and a Royal Commission! How dare Macleans make a list which paints BC in a bad light.

If Pauline Marois or Gilles Duceppe have some cash to blow and want to effectively demonstrate the complete cultural irrelevance of the rest of Canada vis-à-vis Quebec, they could sign their constituents up for Macleans subscriptions. That rag is the best pro-sovereignty argument one could wish for.

:thumbsdown: Encore du sensationnalisme de la part de ce magazine-torchon qui s'adresse à un public peu exigeant en contenu journalistique. Une preuve de plus que l'on peut dire n'importe quoi pourvu que ça vende. Cette publication nivèle l'information par le bas à l'instar de plusieurs médias américains qui confondent l'information véritable avec la perception et l'interprétation.

 

Rien finalement pour soutenir la démocratie puisque cette dernière est essentiellement basée sur une information de qualité qui garanti des choix éclairés de la part de la population. Ces médias tordus sont devenus le nouvel opium du peuple et il en redemande, une authentique exploitation des esprits faibles pour faire bassement de l'argent et qu'on ne vienne pas me dire que c'est du divertissement, il y a mieux dans la vie. Pathétique.

Possibly... for example Fort McMurray which is mentioned, was at one time a city, but is currently an "urban service area" of the Regional Municipality of Wood Buffalo...

      It's actually patently ridiculous that this facility is still being used as a hospital, that would be like using a Ford Model T as an ambulance in 2013. Converting to condo is probably out of the question too given the extraordinary cost and the terrible layouts that it would yield. My guess is that the city, the provincial government nor McGill will want to pay for refurbishment or upkeep and it will become a dilapidated eyesore because Heritage Montreal and the like will oppose anything and no one will dare touch it!!

      Ce projet va renaitre de ses cendres (en partie), via un autre promoteur
       
      Simon Property Group, Calloway REIT, and SmartCentres Announce Second Premium Outlet Center® in Canada to Serve Montreal Area
       
      INDIANAPOLIS, May 21, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Simon Property Group, Inc. (NYSE: SPG), the world's leading retail real estate company, Calloway Real Estate Investment Trust ("Calloway") (TSX: CWT-UN) and SmartCentres announced plans to develop their second Premium Outlet Center® in Canada. The center will be located in the Town of Mirabel, Quebec, approximately 20 miles north of Montreal. The project, called Montreal Premium Outlets®, is a joint venture between Simon, Calloway and SmartCentres. Simon will own 50% of the project.
       
      The Mirabel site is located on Highway 15 at Notre Dame Street. Phase 1 will be comprised of 350,000 square feet of gross leasable area and 80 stores. Construction is expected to begin in 2013. The first Simon and Calloway project, Toronto Premium Outlets, located in the Town of Halton Hills, is currently under construction and on schedule for a summer 2013 opening.
       
      "Due to the strong response to our first announced project in the Toronto area, we are excited to now bring the Premium Outlets branded concept of upscale outlet shopping to the Montreal area," remarked John R. Klein, President of Simon's Premium Outlets platform. "We are pleased to quickly expand our presence in Canada and our partnership with Calloway and SmartCentres to develop another first-class project."
       
      "Opening a new Premium Outlet Center in the Montreal area will help fulfill the merchant demand for growth in Canada while providing economic benefits in and around Mirabel," said Al Mawani, CEO of Calloway. "With more than four million residents in the area, we look forward to bringing a high-quality outlet shopping experience to the region."
       
      "We're pleased to be partnering with Simon Property Group, the world leader in the shopping and outlet center business. We are excited about bringing many new international designer brands to the Canadian consumer at affordable prices," said Mitchell Goldhar, CEO of SmartCentres.
       
       
      "I am delighted with this decision to develop a portion of the Lac Mirabel lands and welcome Premium Outlets to our city," said Hubert Meilleur, Mayor of the City of Mirabel. "They can count on the City's full cooperation in seeing this new project through to its successful completion. Being the first in Quebec to have a Premium Outlets concept is something for us to be very proud of."
      Simon Property Group's outlet portfolio comprises 70 Premium Outlet Centers® including 57 in the United States, one in Puerto Rico, eight in Japan, two in Korea and one in Malaysia and Mexico. Premium Outlet Centers in the United States are located primarily in or near major metropolitan markets such as New York, Los Angeles, Boston and Chicago and visitor markets such as Orlando, Las Vegas and Palm Springs.
