Montreal Monday: Sunken train, Chinatown developing, first budding bush

Each Monday, we bring you some of the popular posts from our sister blog, Spacing Montréal. We’ll keep an eye open for topics and discussions that are pertinent to current public space issues in Toronto.

• Andrew E has written a couple of urban-exploration posts about the now-buried rivers of Riviere St-Pierre in Montreal Ouest and Cote St. Luc.

• Cédric Sam is hoping Montreal’s Chinatown will include the same variety found in Toronto and Vancouver. Read how it’s beginning to take shape with the construction of Swatow Plaza.

• Although she was told that the silver maple is the first to flower in spring, Bronwyn Chester found out the pussy willow makes an appearance much sooner.
