Talk:History of Montreal

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Somebody added this: three towns (Pointe-aux-Trembles, Rivière des Prairies and Saint-Michel) were annexed to Montreal in 1978. I know for a fact that Pointe-aux-Trembles merged with Montreal in 1982, not 1978. I think Saint-Michel merged in 1968 but I am not sure. Maybe someone who knows more about the history of Montreal can fix this. Paul99 21:38, 2 Oct 2004 (UTC)

removed this[edit]

removed this line

"The first permanent European settlement was established in 1639 " because it is FALSE...the first permanent European settlement in Quebec was Quebec city in 1608.

This article is redundant[edit]

Should be deleted. If you search for Montreal you get the main article on the city (including its history) that, unlike this article, is well written. Xtrump 03:41, 3 October 2007 (UTC)

No, this article should be improved and the main article edited down, and they have been. See: Wikipedia:Main article fixation. Shawn in Montreal (talk) 15:42, 25 April 2008 (UTC)


I would think that Montreal would have a higher importance than "low" for Quebec or Canada... (talk) 09:11, 15 September 2008 (UTC)

1689 event[edit]

An event of 1689 is in the Montreal article in the section referencing this article, but is not in this "history" article ? (talk) 08:58, 26 July 2014 (UTC)

Louise Dechêne Source[edit]

The "Louise Dechêne, Habitants and Merchants in Seventeenth-Century Montreal" source is invoked over 35 times. There has to be a better way to go about this-- perhaps more diverse sources? (talk) 02:09, 20 May 2017 (UTC)
