I'll have to take your word for it because I only spent one winter there but I was really surprised at how gray Chicago was that winter. I imagined it was going to be like the Rockies are in winter cold but sunny but the winter I spent there was really dark. Maybe that is not the norm. It is true that Vancouver is very gray in winter, and if you are not from there it could be depressing, however I found the fact I could hardly go outside in winter without putting on a ski parka and hat in Chicago to not be so uplifting either.

Anyone who is afraid of Ste-Catherine in Montreal should probably not be travelling to any big city anywhere and would be best advised to stay home (wherever that is)...

Montreal is a little more obvious with irritated pandhandlers than any other major cities. I feel safer in NY and Chicago than in Dt. Montreal, especially at night. Downtown LA is safer than Downtown Montreal that the thugs, pandhandlers and other elements don't hassle you as much, if not ever. They're very aggressive and aggitated in Dt. Montreal. Let's face it! Montreal's downtown is not safe unless you just stay in the St. Catherine + Peel and the De Masenuerve St. areas.
