Montréal Anglos: The Other White Meat


There's a great issue of Urbania out right now, focussing on Montreal's Anglos (aka "the world's best treated minority" aka "the conquerors" aka "les autres" aka "les blokes" aka "the dirty nasty saleslady at Eaton's department store who wouldn't speak French to my grandmother.").

There are plenty of great pieces online, and the print edition is supposedly even better, although for some reason they don't carry it at the Palmdale Barnes & Noble.

The articles are all over the place, alternately humourous, sympathetic, rude and angry (Oh, those comments!).

Could someone please read it to me?

If you need me to translate I will. What I can read from the online version anyway.

Merci. But it was mostly a joke. Between my evaporating French (which was always a little shaky) and Google, I can suss most of it out. My early French education was strikingly similar to Josh Freed's.

Hell, I didn't even know I was Jewish!

My bad. I wish I had bought the magazine, what is online is fascinating.
