I wrote a blog a couple of months ago covering the fact that Montreal is the best city in Canada for student life ( both socially and economically). And it is not me who came up with this verdict, the conclusion is based on serious research.
And believe it or not nothing has changed since! The fact that the students have been protesting for several weeks now is just an indication that we live in a democratic society.
It does not mean that people should cancel their travel plans or think twice before coming to visit or study in Montreal.
I have spoken to many of our EC Montreal students and none of them said that the student manifestations are stopping them from enjoying their time in Montreal.
