#Montreal somewhat prides itself in its Underground City, but the opening times of some tunnels (especially those connecting office buildings, not malls) are inconsistent, and some are not physically indicated, not to mention almost no information is available online (other than a map indicating the supposed full network)...

(eg. The tunnel between 680 Sherbrooke and 2075 Robert-Bourassa is shut, and the one between the latter and 2001 Robert-Bourassa is only open till 4pm-ish?)

The film Tautuktavuk (What We See) has won the Amplify Voices Award at #TIFF.

The film is co-directed by Carol Kunnuk and Lucy Tulugarjuk, who also play the leads.

It’s about domestic violence in Igloolik, #Nunavut, healing in #Montreal, and being far away from #family by necessity.

The jury said the directors “powerfully capture truth in its most unadorned form” and reflected “a rare purity” in their #filmmaking approach.

I tend to think most “holidays” are weird old traditions that don’t make sense to keep around; vestigial relics of a dead era.

But today is September 16.

On this day in ‘87, politicians and rulers from 46 countries gathered in #Montreal to negotiate and sign a treaty called the Montreal Protocol. This agreement, if ratified, would establish an international ban on producing substances that damaged the #ozone layer.

It was ratified by 197 independent states – every UN member – ignoring the complaints of the #CFC industry.

CFCs were banned, and the ozone layer hole has been gradually healing every year. The Montreal Protocol has been called “perhaps the single most successful international agreement”.

For me, that’s worthy of celebration.

Happy #MontrealProtocol day.

Wow, can't believe this is happening!

" #Montreal is closing its famous road over Mount Royal"

(The project won't be complete until 2028, but still...)

Heard many good things from classmates about this place (notably their #rice is cheap and delicious), so today I tried some. Needless to say I wasn't disappointed. The line is quite long though... (By the way, I ordered in Japanese...)

今天到访了同学间口口相传的名店(只做日式盖饭,价美物廉),果然不负所望。不过门前大排长队……(顺提,用了日语点餐……)

I dug into some numbers for this segment, and the data on #Montreal's pedestrian streets is astounding. 5.3 million pedestrians in two months on Mont-Royal Ave - that's over 85,000 per day! For context, the King streetcar carries about 84,000 people per day and the Don Valley Parkway was originally built to carry 60,000 vehicles per day, though it averages more like 135,000 vehicles per day now. An ordinary city street with near-highway capacity for moving people.

In Europe, many cities are introducing "school streets," closed to cars.

We're trying to do the same at our kids' school in #Montreal (and meeting lots of resistance).

#Sodalite is one of over 400 mineral type found in a quarry at Mont Saint-Hilaire, east of #Montreal, where an alkali-rich mafic magma intruded carbonates.

The Mineralogical Association of Canada has published a beautiful book on this locality (2nd ed. out later this year):
