Montrealers Have Grit

“For years we kept hearing how Toronto and Vancouver, and Calgary and Edmonton were all doing so great. And every time anybody talked about Montreal, nothing really changed. It was just Montreal is Montreal. It stands still. Market is flat. And we keep forgetting there’s millions of people who lived in Montreal who lived through those times of it just being another city in Canada.

Grit is the word that comes to mind most when I think of the people in Montreal. Because through all of the political tension, the language barriers we had, those that stayed are those who have grit. Because they lived through the worst of times while being part of the best of times. You gotta have passion, you gotta have perseverance, and you gotta be able to take a couple of punches, get back up and fight for what you believe in. And those who have stayed are those who believe in Montreal.”
