100 Things I Love About Montreal: Environmentally Friendly Pt 3

IMG_2017Over the years, I have read about our Canadian neighbor’s concern about global warming..It is a thang…Mr. Twitter... overuse of natural resources, free health care, food markets not food deserts, people first…Vive la difference!

The pictures that follow depict a society where All Lives truly Do Matter. It is evident in the laser focused Street Cleaners who keep Downtown Montreal spotless, the recycling receptacles on every corner,( including one for your old electronic devices), the familiar BELL telephone sign above the strategically placed Clean telephone booths…No, Virginia everyone does not have a iPhone… The 10 cents charge for a bag in a store, the no straws policy, the no smoking in front of a building , the Clean, Clean air and Happy, Friendly People (more on them in the Next Post).

The Free cell phone charger machines are a godsend for those who have cell phones…. like my trusty iPhone that suffered a relapse and needed a constant battery charge upon crossing the Border, and even had the audacity to die en route to the Dr. Lonnie Liston Smith set ( I had drank the kool aid and not printed out my $50 ticket, trusting my phone would do what it was supposed to do).  This resulted  in a good old fashioned American begging  session with a young clerk in a nearby Bookstore who graciously offered his personal charger to solve my problem…Mais oui, Madame..(spell check keeps changing my French words!(

These free chargers (various space age designs) can be found at many public places, colleges, and of course the Jazz Festival tent- manned by a smiling, vivacious newly arrived Brussels native and her co-worker from Eritrea who upon finding that the “charger”machine was full, offered her Own  personal charger (another Personne sympathique) to give my iPhone a boost. Thus ensuring that I could communicate with Someone, Anyone that night while at the Venue.

I could go on and on…but I will let the photos do the talking. Bon Soir!

PS…have you booked your ticket yet? I understand the foliage in the Fall is breathtakingly awesome!

  1. Hello lady, looks like a fantastic place. I’m really keen to visit Victoria, B.C. and go whale-hugging..
    Anyways, I think different cities have different considerations, I love recycling (I’m about 2% OCD about it 🙂 – in London, for instance, there are no bins or receptacles on the streets or on the underground because throughout the seventies the IRA used to put bombs in them.
    There are some in the major train stations though and I have to say the streets are very decent, we have a lot of street sweepers. Not sure if they’ve decided to gradually put them back, but London is unfortunately ‘a target’.
    Looks super there though! xxx
