An Ode to Montreal: Preface

If you had to describe Montreal to a friend, what would you say? Between its perpetual construction sites, vibrant cultural scene and diverse community, it is hard to choose the right words to do it justice. With the city’s 375th anniversary still fresh in collective memory, we could not pass the opportunity to try.

Graphite would like to dedicate this week to Montreal, “la ville aux cent clochers,” without which it wouldn’t exist. We would like to pay our respects to the unique metropolis that brought us together and changed our lives forever. Whether you just arrived in town or were there all along, we hope that you will enjoy reading our ode to its greatness and that our words will inspire you to go out and experience all that it has to offer.

Montréal, mon amour. Montréal, pour toujours.
