Someone on Quora asked, what does Montreal need? I lost the question. So what the heck; I’ll answer it here.
It needs to be the capital of Canada, in the first place. That’s a no-brainer. Everybody loses so long as it is not.
It needs a transparent canopy over St. Catherine Street from Crescent to St. Laurent to keep out the winter snow and cold. Perhaps we can extend this to other downtown streets as well. This is obvious for Montreal: cold, snowy, and with tight little streets downtown.
In needs a zoo, along the lines of the old Garden of Wonders in LaFontaine Park, but much bigger. It should feature mythological creatures from around the world.
It needs back both the Expos and the Montreal Maroons.
It needs to lose the requirement for all newcomers’ children to be educated in French. That’s a serious head office killer. Let the parents decide.
