Une chance que ce power ranking est basé sur la fiche des équipes de la ville. Ils ont placé Montréal devant San Francisco! C'est sur, nous n'Avons qu'une seule équipe des ligues majeurs, au moins il en ont trois(Les 49ers, les Giants et la Warriors)

Quan Detroit remporte un classement, en général il ne faut pas s'inquiéter d'être trop bas dans leur rankings...

Montreal Is Where It Should Be Considering It's An Event Laden City; However, Surprised At Toronto's Standing...thought It Would Be Much Higher In The Standings. All In All, When It Comes To Sports, The Americans Are Numero Uno.

Toronto is not enough of a football hub despite hosting a few Bills games and having the Argos. Americans believe that Football is 5x more important than any other sport.

 

In order of popularity to Americans:

1. NFL Football

2. NASCAR

3. NBA Basketball

4. College Football

5. MLB Baseball

6. College Basketball

7. PGA Golf

8. Indy Racing League

9. NHL Hockey

10. MLS Soccer

I don't entirely agree with your ranking...here's how I would place them.

 

1. NFL Football

2. NASCAR

3. MLB Baseball

4. College Football

5. NBA Basketball

6. College Basketball

7. PGA Golf

8. IRL

9. Figure Skating

.

.

17. Professional Bull Riding

.

.

20. Professional Bowling

21. Poker

.

24. NHL Hockey

.

.

28. MLS Soccer

 

You might thikn that I'm joking with the Bowling and the bull Riding, but I'm very serious. Both thoses "sports" are more popular than Hockey. So is poker!

      Hello all!
      Im back with another poll, this time about potential new sports teams in Montreal. 
      A little backstory, I've often been in many discussions with my friends about which sports team Montreal should push for next and our discussions always come down to 3 main points supporting a team for each of the big three leagues in North America.
      1) Montreal should get an NBA team, look at the Raptors and their recent success, Montreal is an international city with many of its citizens immigrating from or coming to study here from African and Asian countries where basketball is popular (Angola, China, Taiwan, Philippines, Cameroon, Nigeria, Congo) for example. A basketball arena already exists in the Bell Center (1996) and the team could play there. Montreal's NBA basketball team would naturally rival the Raptors and would make for exciting match-ups. Link - https://www.cbc.ca/sports/basketball/nba/nba-montreal-1.4857187
      2) Montreal should get an MLB team, we used to have the Expos. Already there is talk about the Tampa Bay Rays splitting games between their home arena in Tampa Bay and playing in Montreal. Stephen Bronfman (son of former Expos owner Charles Bronfman) has already expressed interest in owning the Expos should they ever come back to Montreal. Arena talks are underway near the griffintown / peel basin area and would greatly aid Montreal in getting a team back. Link - https://montrealgazette.com/sports/todd-stephen-bronfman-embraces-plan-to-bring-baseball-back-to-montreal
      3) Montreal should get an NFL team, the NFL is looking to expand already to places like London or Mexico City. If the NFL realizes that those two cities are too logistically challenging and they wont pursue them, then the NFL could look at a closer to home option in Montreal as realistically it is the only viable city in Canada that could support an NFL team. The NFL can't expand to Toronto because the Buffalo Bills would veto it. They can't expand to Vancouver because the Seattle Seahawks would veto it. Toronto already holds the title as "Canada's NBA team", and maybe the NFL would like to try and have the Montreal NFL team marketed as "Canada's NFL team". Link - https://www.si.com/nfl/2019/06/07/expansion-cities-san-diego-portland-montreal-oklahoma-city-bismarck-anchorage
      I am curious to what you guys think is the best argument below. Please feel free to add anything that i may have forgotten. This discussion is purely hypothetical and aims at being a fun place to build on / argue against differentiating points.
      Thank you for reading!

      Photo: Martha Wainwright by Cindy Boyce   As Montréal was getting ready to celebrate its 375th anniversary, we wanted to reflect on its past, its present, and its future.
      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.

      Nouveau Projet is a general-interest biannual publication launched in Montréal in 2012. It aims to offer Quebecers a high-quality magazine that showcases the best writers, thinkers, and visual artists. It supports progressive forces at the social and cultural levels, and seeks to contribute to a dynamic and creative society. It has received many awards over the years, including the Canadian Magazine of the Year title at the National Magazine Awards in 2015.
      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.

      Bizarrement j'ai pas trouvé de fil pour ce méga projet au croisement de la 640 et de la 15. Un projet très important avec 1400 unités d'habitations.
       
      Voici une description de la compagnie Cherokee
       
      Redevelopment Plan
      The mixed-use lifestyle development, known as Faubourg Boisbriand, features a communityfocused design that includes the Boisbriand Town Center, 1,400 residential units, a new community center, recreational facilities and an urban square — all within walking distance of the future regional commuter rail line that connects the site to downtown Montreal. More than 15 percent of the development is dedicated to open spaces, including parks, several miles of walking and biking trails and other public amenities. In addition, 2,400 trees are being planted on site, and roughly 140,000 tons of concrete and 2.5 million square feet of asphalt are being reused. The project’s significant achievements were recently recognized by the Canadian Urban Institute’s (CUI) prestigious 2007 “Brownie” Award for best large-scale redevelopment project. Additional information can be found on our project Web site, www. faubourgboisbriand.com.
       
      Project Background
      Cherokee’s project in Boisbriand, Quebec, located just 15 miles north of Montreal, is a former General Motors automobile manufacturing plant encompassing 232 acres. Industrial activity at the site resulted in soil contamination, including petroleum from leaking underground storage tanks and an oil spill.
       
      The Cherokee Solution
      Cherokee acquired the property in 2004, upgraded the remediation to residential standards and secured the necessary entitlements to facilitate redevelopment of an integrated lifestyle community that combines shopping facilities with residential and office space, while providing urban infrastructures and respecting the natural environment. The project was designated as a pilot for USGBC’s new Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design for Neighborhood Development (LEED-ND) program, which integrates principles of smart growth, neighborhood design and green building.
