    new montreal photos! february thaw, february smog (broadband)

    today was the sixth consecutive day environment canada issued a smog warning for montreal and the sixth consecutive day of nice warm temperatures. it's a trade-off i'm willing to make (of course, if i had asthma it might be a different story...).

    Thanks for the tour Christopher. And, I think you captured the Montreal Expos fan:

    Labor is prior to, and independent of, capital. Capital is only the fruit of labor, and could never have existed if labor had not first existed. Labor is the superior of capital, and deserves much the higher consideration.

    is the Expos fan looking at "Let's Go - Montreal" ??
    Indeed you can usually tell when the concepts of democracy and citizenship are weakening. There is an increase in the role of charity and in the worship of volunteerism. These represent the élite citizen's imitation of noblesse oblige; that is, of pretending to be aristocrats or oligarchs, as opposed to being citizens.

    Thanks for the pics Christopher. The 3 storey walk up flats (apartments) with stairs to the first floor (2nd level) are interesting. I can't think of seeing examples like that anywhere in Australia. Typically here we would have internal access only, via a shared foyer (lobby?). I can see some advantages in the Montreal model, given that common areas in these sorts of residential buildings are sometimes a source of aggravation for residents. I assume there are seperate flats (apartments) on the second floor (level 3) which are accessible from an internal stair?

    rem, the outdoor staircases are indeed unique to montreal. a triplex (as the three-storey buildings are known) have between one and two apartments per floor. the third-floor apartments share a common stairway that opens onto the second floor balcony.
