Montreal is experiencing a bit of a renewal lately.
Growing up in Montreal, whenever I heard the name of a big company in the news, it was because that company was closing shop and moving away from the city due to language law issues or the high tax rates.
But lately, we've been hearing the opposite. Montreal was officially named the #1 Smart city in the world earlier this year and it seems like businesses are taking notice.
We have several reputable academic institutions, we produce more university/higher education graduates than any other city in Canada, we have a thriving startup scene, and we have a ton of "accelerator programs" that are set up for small businesses.
The most recent company to choose Montreal is none other than Amazon. The internet retailer has opened up several data centers in Montreal. And their main reason for choosing our city was because of the cost and availability of hydro-electric power.

Although Black Friday and Cyber Monday are just around the corner, plenty of shops are offering up deals and discounts right now.
From fashion and beauty to electronics and home decor, you can save a good chunk of money — especially if you're planning on taking advantage of these sales during your holiday shopping.
Best Buy is one of the most popular stores that Canadians shop at during Black Friday and you can already find great deals on electronics. What's great about their early deals is that they'll refund you the difference if the items you buy go lower in price later on.
The massive furniture and home goods store is having a month-long event that's all about sustainability including a sell-back program, donations, workshops and an additional 25% off as-is products from November 26 to 29 for members.
Pre-Black Friday deals are on now until November 24 and you can save up to 70% on bedding, home decor and more. The discount is already applied and no promo code is required. You can browse their 2021 holiday gift guide if you need some inspiration.

"No description can equal this," said an amazed Shatner, looking at the Earth from space.
Seemingly speechless, Shatner was only able to say "oh wow" or "oh my God" as he was floating weightless in the vast beyond.
And really, can you blame him?
In a Twitter post apparently scheduled to go live during his flight, Shatner wrote, "I do not know what I may appear to the world, but to myself I seem to have been only like a boy playing on the seashore, diverting myself in now & then finding a smoother pebble or a prettier shell than ordinary, whilst the great ocean of truth lay all undiscovered before me."
On October 1, Amazon Prime is coming out with its latest All Or Nothing sports documentary series which will chronicle the 2020-2021 Toronto Maple Leafs season.
And while that's all fine and dandy for the Maple Leafs, some hockey fans have absolutely roasted the Leafs about their new documentary because they've rightfully pointed out that the Leafs end up with, well, nothing.
The memory of the Canadiens' glorious win against their arch-rivals is still fresh in the minds of Habs supporters in Canada and, like some fans have pointed out, it's kind of silly that the Leafs are touting this documentary series when we all know how it ends already.
