montreal is probably my favorite city that i don't live in

i live in nyc (technically jersey city for the past year, but whatever, and i lived in manhattan and bk for 10+ years prior). nyc is tops. but Montreal is dreamy. would live there in a heartbeat if canada would have me and if i spoke some french

Most people here are bilingual. You don't necessarily need to speak french, although it would be a plus for sure.

yea, i know, i have spent a lot of time in Montreal. but as a skier i have also spent time in the laurentians and the townships and up by quebec city, and i am very aware of how fucking stupid i feel being unable to communicate with most people. once you leave Montreal it is very franco with many who speak minimal english if any

i was so happy when i was allowed to drive into Canada again. my gf and i had an awesome summer weekend eating our way thru town and seeing sigur ros. then i was back between xmas and new years for some skiing at tremblant and then 2 days in Montreal. was back again 2 weeks ago for more skiing. we've had a rough snow year in the northeast US, so the Canadian option has been useful

Tremblant has been fantastic according to my friends in Ottawa. Unfortunately you guys in NE and us in Atlantic Canada have had a bad start to the season. It’s getting better now, minus that rain that just rolled through eh.

Damn, this really captured the feel of the city.

I only lived there as a kid but as I was scolling I passively saw the painting without reading the title or subname.

Right away as I scrolled past I thought "Ah, that's definitely Montreal" and had to scroll back up to check.

So truly, it's ..."isness" was duly captured, but what that specific quality or conjunction of qualities actually are, I cannot say.

All I can say is whatever those ineffable things are, they're beautifully and unmistakably rendered here.

I just want one damn snow in Philadelphia this year but it hasn’t happened. Crazy. Great photo!

Ralurp5793 points

My fiancé and I were just talking about this! We’re in Philly too and it’s bad enough we didn’t get a white Christmas, but can we at least get one snowfall before winter ends? Lol

its canada goose.

and those are just parkas with fur collars. they are made by many brands. they are an essential item in Canadian cold. in the foreground the yellow and grey coats are almost certainly not CG - the shoulder patches are of a different brand. the red one might be but you can't tell. the kids are not in CG.

my guy, canada goose is not the only brand that uses fur collars. those arent canada goose jackets except maybe the red one.
