I agree. That is why Montreal should be at the top of the list. What other cities have the character MTL does?? Griffin town, Point st charles, verdun, the plateau, mile end etc etc.....they have a lot of gritt and Character. MTL is also the most bombed (graffiti covered) city in Canada. Graffiti always adds a bit of character.

Character is subjective though. I'd say Montreal has more unique or native character than most other cities in Canada. In terms of multicultural character than i'd give that to Toronto. Point being character is subjective.

LOL absolutely though you probably won't be very impressed with Winnipeg. Though I have to say it certainly is not what stroke it said it was. That was just rude. It has its nice areas.

Yes, I'm always interested in what the Big B has to say - even about Winnipeg (j/k UrbanLuis)

My pleasure regarding the Portugal tips and if you go anywhere else I've been before you - always happy to share that info with you! I usually make it public in the forums where i'm going - mostly because i'm excited!
