Hi Greg. There are a lot of things that are wrong about Montreal and I agree with you that the city does not live up to its potential in the startup world. However, blaming languages laws and the shortcomings of the education system as the main culprits makes no sense to me. I would blame way before high personal income taxes, the poor work ethic of Montrealers (everyone is out of the office at 5pm), and a clueless government which focus on creating manufacturing jobs… or high tech jobs at foreign companies. That said, I believe Montreal is indeed the Berlin of North America. We just need people who stand up and build here with like minded, hard working Montrealers, instead of going abroad and complain about how Montreal is not English enough. That said, I know you’ll come back at some point and do just that.
