Montreal is the largest city in Quebec, one of the largest in Canada.
Great destination for enjoying tons of festivals (Jazz, Just for Laugh) the Grand Prix and much more!

You can bring your climbing shoes to Allez-Up! where Marc d'Hostie will pick them every tuesday and return them the next week. Great job, call him up if you want anything special (514) 257-7628.
