Street Chronicles: Impressions of Montreal

Along a crowded sidewalk in downtown Montreal panels of mounted photographs overlook McGill College Avenue. At first glance, the photographs offer a simple glimpse into the past, but on closer look, they are mementos of individual lives that have been touched by the city.

Out on the town: Montreal’s best eggs Benedict

The eggs Benedict is a staple of any brunch menu.

Wall Art and Tan Lines

Summer in Montreal is the best time to catch up on our cultural quotas for the year: Time stretches out, schoolwork melts away, cash (hopefully) starts flowing in from summer jobs, and there seems to be a music festival for every weekend of July and August. Outdoor concerts and film screenings are given but no… Keep Reading
