Various places around town
Toronto media are at it again, talking about Montreal as if it’s a million miles away in a strange country. I suppose maybe it is. Three locals give favourite addresses in “exotic Quebec” although Kathleen Winter’s “funky Milton on St. Viateur” must be a messed-up reference to S.W. Welch’s bookshop and their editors can’t spell “terrasse” either. Meanwhile Canoe samples various restaurants then informs us in a footnote “Google the name of any of the spots mentioned to find phone numbers and locations. Most also show the nearest stop for the Metro (subway), which so many Montrealers use to zip around.” How exotic. No more buttered scones for me, mater. I’m off to play the grand piano.
