I agree that Montreal being mobbed up makes weekend driving a nightmare if you're not on the island. But it still has nothing to do with the CFL. Every city has its challenges. Montreal has a lot to recommend it and if free agents are spurning us over traffic, they're idiots and we're better off without them.


Absolutely. There isn't another city in Canada where you can get a clean two bedroom appartment for less than 600.00
Great mass transit system
Great nightlife
Great entertainment all summer
Best value in fine dinning maybe in the Western world.
Still great fashion retail, no longer world class but still better than you'll find anywhere in Canada.

Negative is terrible infrastructures, below veterinarian health care, Dirty corrupt cops, socialist government.

Yeah, socialism is fine with me. I like having social safety nets and my taxes going toward the community, rather than into the pockets of billionaires. Corruption is the issue, not socialism.

The COuillard government is not socialist! They have cut just about every service, and have put the axe to many pension funds.

How is any of that not just unfettered capitalism? Relentless self-enrichment at the expense of the poor, that's your free market in a nutshell.

With rapid transit, miles of bike lanes, car co-ops everywhere, separate lanes for more than one occupant cars, I can tell you Vancouver is a breeze compared to TO and especially Montreal. When I go to Montreal now...its old town..and I don't even think of driving. But it's still a GREAT city.

Love Billy Parker. He's not a vocal type either, so when he talks it's because he has something to say.

Herb is sitting behind a bulletproof union contract. Would cost them more to fire him than it would pay him till retirement.

Oh yeah, no way Herb gets fired. But it's nice to see a player unload on and call out this BS he passes off as "journalism."

Personally I don't think players should individually engage in public pissing contests with local reporters, especially before a game.
If it needs to be done then I think the GM or president should take the heat off the players and make their own statement on behalf of.
