I've been to Montreal a couple times. Would like to take my motorcycle there in the spring and do some shooting. I agree -for a very artistic community, very little going on in the way of photography it seems. For the exception of Amanda Tetrault and her project "Phil and Me", I haven't seen anything film related come out of that city in a long time. However, I'm also not really combing through the Montreal photography scene very much. And the landscape and architecture is very unique and something you would never see out west.
