picture[edit]

Someone should be sure to get a picture of the purple lights on the cross, since it looks like they'll be used quite soon. —Charles P. (Mirv) 21:10, 1 Apr 2005 (UTC)

I'm on it. - Montrealais

Purple lights[edit]

Yes, they should be lit right now. However, the article has an error: the lights were purple 26 years ago last time the Pope changed (the article indicates that this is only possible since 1992 when the fibre optics were put in). I'm not that old, but a friend of mine saw them first-hand, last time. (-:

Does anyone know about Wallace & Van Warren from Mount Royal? I'm wondering if they are a legit company because they are supposedly doing a sweepstakes.

Article Clean-up[edit]

I tidied up the photos -- they were placed somewhat haphazardly throughout the article, and were starting to actually crowd out the text. I only removed one photo (one of the "tam-tam" shots -- I don't think two are necessary, and it wasn't obvious from the one that I removed that it was showing the Sunday Tam-Tams). I'm not wedded to the way I laid out the photos, but I do think that the photos should illustrate the text, but shouldn't be made front and centre to the detriment of the article. I also cleaned-up the Tam-Tam section -- once I removed the POV, unverifiable observations and links to after-hours clubs, it became a lot shorter. Skeezix1000 22:00, 5 January 2006 (UTC)

Fletchers Field[edit]

My father used to refer to Parc Jeanne-Mance as "Fletchers Field". Aparently the area which now comprises the Parc Jeanne-Mance was once part of a farm belonging to someone named "Fletcher" or so the story goes. Does anyone have the straight dope on this?

Editdroid 14:24, 30 November 2006 (UTC)

Here's a newspaper article that calls it "Fletcher's Field"... [1] 76.66.192.73 (talk) 10:24, 31 March 2010 (UTC)

Volcano[edit]

I have removed Category:Volcanoes of Canada and Category:Hotspot volcanoes as categories from this article. As stated in the article, Mount Royal is not a volcano. - Montréalais (talk) 18:36, 19 April 2008 (UTC)

Mount Royal is still notable as being a fictional volcano. Therefor I think Category:Volcanoes of Canada is appropiate. The volcano project above should stay also because the mountain has volcanic dikes and was formed by a volcanic hotspot. Note: none of the other Monteregian Hills arn't in the volcano category because they're arn't as notable for being fictional volcanoes. Black Tusk 21:10, 5 May 2008 (UTC)


Time Capsule[edit]

There is (or was) a time capsule near The Cross. Could some one add info about it? I haven't seen it years, so I wouldn't know what to write. I think its supposed to be opened in 2100-something, though.Bob bobato (talk) 15:41, 30 July 2008 (UTC)

Image in gallery[edit]

"Downtown Montreal seen from the mountain" looks real nice but its HDR edited, not actual photo.. more art than actual photo. Could we get a photo from the same location that is of what you'd actually see?Cs302b (talk) 05:24, 31 December 2008 (UTC)

The Mount Royal article was moved around via cut-and-paste moving, and then it was corrrected via histmerging, so now we've ended up with the original Mount Royal article situated at Mount Royal, Montreal, and the Mount Royal (disambiguation) article sitting at Mount Royal. 76.66.198.171 (talk) 20:45, 16 January 2009 (UTC)

This is being discussed at Talk:Mount Royal as it has appeared at WP:RM ; note virtually no articles link to Mount Royal, Montreal, and virtually everything linking to Mount Royal mean the one in Montreal. 76.66.198.171 (talk) 06:48, 17 January 2009 (UTC)

hill or mountain[edit]

User:Poyt448 changed the lead sentence from;

Mount Royal is a mountain on the Island of Montreal to
Mount Royal is a hill on the Island of Montreal

While its description of being a hill or a mountain is entirely subjective, the rest of the article describes it as a mountain. --kelapstick (talk) 23:07, 1 April 2009 (UTC)
