The best Canadian cities

Posted by MP / July 28, 2010

Best canadian citiesThe best Canadian cities have been battling it out all month on our Facebook Group. The contest comes to a close at midnight tonight but it's not too late to vote or score a prize like an Xbox or a new Nokia N97 Mini.

If the current standings hold up Montreal will shockingly come in second place. At least we're ahead of Vancouver. But with just over 12 hours to go in the contest, there's still a chance to impact the voting. There are a number of close categories where Montreal has a very real chance of overcoming the current front-runners in Toronto and Vancouver. Here's a look at some of them as well as highlights of the results so far.


  • Architecture Monstrosity - The Orange Julep
  • Bakery - Cheskie's
  • Bar - Le Pistol
  • Bookstore - Drawn and Quarterly
  • Boutique Hotel - Le Germain
  • Brunch - L'Avenue
  • Comic - Jon Lajoie
  • Diner - Beauty's It Neighbourhood - Mile End
  • Live Music Venue - La Sala Rossa
  • Music Festival - Pop Montreal
  • Neighbourhood - Plateau
  • Patron Saint - Leonard Cohen
  • Superstar - Celine Dion
  • Video Store - La Boite Noire


Barring a huge comeback in the last day of voting it looks certain that Montral will win these categories:

  • Arts Festival - Just for Laughs
  • Bagel - St. Viateur
  • Band - Arcade Fire
  • BBQ Chicken - Romados
  • Bike Organization - Bixi
  • Billionaire - Guy LaLiberté
  • Car Race - Grand Prix
  • Deli - Schwartz's
  • DJ - Kid Koala
  • French Restaurant - L'Express

Montreal is best at being freeloaders.

So now that the contest has come to an end and that Montreal has finished second, I see that I am supposed to have win a Nokia N97 Mini (I'm the one with the more points in MTL). But still, I didn't receive any notifications confirming that I was the winner, and the contest ended on July 28 !! I tried to call Nokia but they said I had to contact Midnight Poutine...What do I have to do now to claim my prize?? I want it!

It's great to come across a blog every once in a while that isn't
the same unwanted rehashed material. Wonderful read!

I think what you posted made a bunch of sense.
But, what about this? suppose you were to create a killer headline?
I mean, I don't want to tell you how to run your website, however suppose you
added a headline to maybe grab people's attention? I mean The best
Canadian cities is a little plain. You might peek at Yahoo's home page and see
how they create post headlines to grab viewers to click.
You might add a related video or a picture or two to get people interested about what you've got to say.
Just my opinion, it could bring your posts a little bit more interesting.

An interesting discussion is worth comment.
There's no doubt that that you need to write more on this subject matter,
it might not be a taboo matter but usually folks
don't discuss such issues. To the next! All the

First off I want to say wonderful blog! I had a quick question which
I'd like to ask if you don't mind. I was curious to know how you center yourself and clear your thoughts prior
to writing. I have had a hard time clearing my mind
in getting my ideas out there. I do take pleasure
in writing however it just seems like the first 10 to 15
minutes tend to be lost just trying to figure out how to begin. Any
ideas or tips? Appreciate it!

My programmer is trying to convince me to move to .net from PHP.
I have always disliked the idea because of the costs. But he's tryiong
none the less. I've been using Movable-type on numerous websites for about a year and am concerned about switching to another platform.

I have heard great things about
Is there a way I can transfer all my wordpress content into it?
Any help would be really appreciated!
