Congrats, MTL Blog readers. You are getting exactly the content and quality you deserve. 

Though, to be fair, this is about as compelling (and grammatically correct) as their recent piece on the Top 29 Best Clam Chowder Places in Montreal.

(Here’s the Do Not Link, if you CRAVE quality condo-related content but still despise these garbage people.)

I’m bright and early today, ready to work on some “French” phonetics ( or more exactly on the differences between the pronunciations in Quebec, Belgium and France)
