There was this popular misconception amongst airliners.net users, that Montreal was the no.3 HQ city in Canada, behind TOronto and Calgary.. several posters questioning the entrepeneurial integrity of the city.

The following thread should help those who are in doubt.

Thanks for the link Mark. Montreal is a beautiful city that has gone through alot. It may not be the economic hotspot of Canada, but I'm proud to be a Montrealer.

Hey Marco.

The point of this thread was to correct certain inaccuracies that some posters on this forum, have used as evidence to substantiate their arguments.. Alas, they have been disproven.

True Mark. Montreal and Calgary are just very different. Some friends who came to visit from Calgary last weekend were surprised at the amount of stores our downtown has (and how they all offer different products and remain profitable). Montreal is still a city with almost 4 million people. On a per-capita basis I would say Calgary is richer, but overall we still have a much larger and diverse population.

Several large companies were preparing themselves to move out of Montreal if Quebec separated. I would suggest the whole separation issue may be the reason for some favouring Calgary over the last few years.

Although I really like Montreal (and don't care for Calgary much) I personally wouldn't consider Montreal as corporate headquarters in the present political environment unless I dervied the majority of my business from Quebec.

What political climate, separatism is practically dead. Of course we won't be able to write a final obituary until certain language laws are repealed or altered. Still, its quickly becoming a non-issue.

I don't think separatism is dead just yet. There's still some strong sentiments amongst the Francophones...

We'll see how Martin deals with Quebec. So far it seems he is nodding more to the west than to Quebec. Could this change things for Quebec?
