Anglophone Montrealers open and close lights, fall pregnant, get a coffee, go to vernissages, eat on the terrasse, and get cash at the guichet. Francophone Montreals, if they are lucky, have un chum or une blonde who is not only smooth but also le fun. Basically English (and its three main 'ethnolects' here, British, Jewish, and Italian) and French get all interestingly mixed up
The Montreal Gazette
is the only daily English language newspaper in Montreal. It has a venerable history, only sometimes has typos and proofreading errors everywhere, and is arguably an important part of Montreal anglophone culture.
More exciting and serious news from Montreal today:
Old Montrealers fall in love and have super sweet stories
and even older priests.
Montrealers remember the story of Harold Greasley
, a Brit who escaped from his Nazi POW camp, and snuck back in, 200 times to rendezvous with his secretly Jewish German girlfriend.
