Oh dear, tourism writing again

A piece from Lehigh Valley Live is amusing me at the moment. The Lehigh Valley is in Pennsylvania, bleeding across the border into New Jersey. It’s a fairly typical Europe on the cheap piece – Notre Dame was “built in the 1600′s” (actually the main construction was done between 1824 and 1829 but the interior we know now was worked on throughout the 19th century).

“Montrealers have a rich history of not only combining, but peacefully collaborating, with indigenous Native American tribes.” I see. Let’s just leave that one there. Likewise “While most everyone in Montreal speaks English, it is infused with a charming French accent.”

Also today, the Boston Globe has a piece on Montreal restaurants – but it also has a paywall.
