Mapping out crime in a city can be pretty useful, not that criminal acts can't happen everywhere, but it does point out which areas are more "dangerous," and, more importantly, which areas have at-risk citizens who are likelier to become involved with criminal activity. La Presse created a map more useful to the latter task, telling you which borough of Montreal detained criminals in Quebec hail from.
Taking numbers from Bordeaux Prison, Rivière-des-Prairie Institution, and Centre de Detention Tanguay, the map breaks up the city by borough, colouring each section of the city based on how many detained criminals used to call the 'hood home. Not solely focused on the Island of Montreal, the map also extends beyond the city's official borders.
A handy tool to learn about the grittier side if your neighborhood, you can punch in your postal code to find the criminal-figures of your borough, or just click on the map to find out. Each borough designation tells you the total number of detained criminals, and which prison they now reside within. Note that Tanguay is a women's correctional facility.
Three Montreal boroughs stand out from the rest, and not in a good way, being red (meaning more detained criminals) as opposed to the green and yellow littered around the rest of the island. According to La Presse, these are the three Montreal boroughs with the highest amount of detained criminals:
Montreal's iconic Greenspot Restaurant is selling hot dogs for 74 cents this weekend, September 18 and 19, to celebrate its 74th anniversary.
On Facebook, the Saint-Henri eatery says it's converting its small parking lot on avenue Greene into a picnic area for the event.
And the wiener fun doesn't stop there. Greenspot is having a contest on its Instagram page where followers have the chance to win 74 hot dogs — a prize they can redeem at their discretion.
The restaurant invites followers to share the Instagram post and tag three friends to enter the contest.
Daily two-for-one deals have also been part of the 74th-anniversary celebrations.
Dating back to 1947, Greenspot serves American and Quebec diner classics (including a long list of hearty poutines) amid retro decor (including individual table jukeboxes — they don't work but they're super charming!).
Get the details on the 74th-anniversary hot dog deal below.
