Please help to prune[edit]

This article appears to have swelled into a list of Montreal trivia and kruft, where every organization-founding and Montreal related factoid is granted historical significance. Recentism and crystal balling (in the 2010s section, which I removed) is a particular problem. Please help to prune. Shawn in Montreal (talk) 01:52, 28 February 2010 (UTC)

One deletion I'm not sure about is some of the media and arts festival foundings, but this sort of thing is pretty subjective. What represents a truly lasting significance and what is just laundry listing? Shawn in Montreal (talk) 02:11, 28 February 2010 (UTC)

Montreal deluge 2012[edit]

This should be updated to account for the new deluge, but I can't find an article to link to. (29 May 2012 Tuesday flooding) 70.24.251.208 (talk) 08:39, 2 June 2012 (UTC)

Company Foundations[edit]

Do we really need to list the foundation dates of companies that merely happen to be based in Montreal? I can't really see the point of this information. What do other people think? RomanSpa (talk) 04:52, 12 May 2014 (UTC)
