We Montrealers love hockey, food, art and spending time with friends and family over coffee or wine, preferably outdoors. Ninety percent of us move every year, we have our own English words and our own French words not used anywhere else and it is not uncommon for us to use old Yiddish, Greek and Italian words inbetween.
