There's no such thing as the "wrong side" of any age. 40-year-olds want to be 30 again, 30-year-olds pine for their twenties, and some twenty-year-olds wish they were school children again. There's a million fun things to do in Montreal for people over 40. Lots of them are the same things as for people under 40 -- because people are people, people! Even though there's a million fun things for over-40's to do, it'd take too long to compile a million, so here's 40 instead.
