Montreal, a green city
Many Quebecois are sensitive to environmental causes. Recycling is practiced in most boroughs and fees may be charged if city-dwellers throw away recyclable material. Montrealers like cleanliness. Caring for the environment is a sign of respect for the city and its inhabitants.
French is Quebec’s official language, but in Montreal, the city is for the most part, fully bilingual. In fact, 50% of Montrealers speak both languages fluently.
