Hey everyone! for this discussion, I want to talk about our downtown. I know and we all know that we have a unique and busy downtown compared to other cities and one that is envied by others as well. But I've been noticing a lot of people from the city and tourists saying how quickly the downtown area gets "dead" after 9 pm (in winter and summer). Personally, I disagree 110% since I find the downtown bust from 5am-3am every day no matter what season. But what do you guys think? is the downtown area getting busier or "quieter" as others have been saying, and if so, what would you do to make it livelier? I definitely want to hear others opinions on this and see others observations as well.

Bringing together a team of writers, historians, thinkers, photographers and illustrators, we asked them to give us their visions of this complex city, both international and parochial, proud of its glorious past but sometimes weighted down by it, stimulating and often infuriating, but always, from the very start, rich in stories.

Cities for people Cities for People is an initiative of the J.W. McConnell Family Foundation that aims to foster more inclusive, innovative and resilient cities across Canada. Following an experimental phase, in 2016 we have refocused our efforts on four priorities: 1) Increasing Equality, 2) Strengthening the Civic Commons, 3) Enabling City Labs, and 4) Supporting Urban Innovation Networks.
Amplifier Montréal Amplifier Montréal is a movement launched by several partners from various backgrounds in the city of Montreal to influence the city's ongoing transformation. The goal is to rethink the way we see ourselves and the way we should go about transforming Montréal into a more inclusive, resilient and innovative city. We achieve this by listening to all, particularly those who voices are unheard, in order to collect and promote the diversity of cities’ narratives, and by making a call for action through unlikely collaborations between various stakeholders.
The J.W. McConnell Family Foundation Established in 1937, the J.W. McConnell Family Foundation engages Canadians in building a more innovative, inclusive, sustainable, and resilient society. The Foundation’s purpose is to enhance Canada’s ability to address complex social, environmental and economic challenges. We accomplish this by developing, testing, and applying innovative approaches and solutions; by strengthening the community sector; and by collaborating with partners in the community, private, and public sectors. We recognize that creating enduring change takes time, and involves more than granting.
