You might have noticed that the height of buildings in Montreal is shorter than those in other North American cities. That's by design. And now, Mayor Valérie Plante's party, Projet Montréal, is committing to keep it that way.
"Since 1992, a consensus has existed in Montreal regarding the maximum height of buildings," the party wrote on Facebook. "According to this agreement, Montreal's constructions must not obscure the views of Mount Royal — and therefore must not peak higher than the mountain's highest level, which is more than 232 metres above sea level."
The party criticized former mayor Denis Coderre's claim that taller buildings could help to increase the housing offer in the city.
"Mr. Coderre seems to believe that Montreal's highest peaks should belong to the owners of downtown penthouses [...] Let's be honest. Who will really benefit from taller skyscrapers? A handful of wealthy people and a few real estate developers... And so would begin the privatization of the views of our Mount Royal," Projet Montréal warned.
You could earn $22.21 an hour without a degree or experience (but you do need a high school diploma). Plus, the plant promises a 15% raise each year for three years, so you'd be making $30 an hour in just a few years — and there's the possibility of getting an annual performance bonus.
While no specific degree or experience is necessary, you are expected to be fluent in both oral and written French.
The job listing says you should have an "interest in developing in a major manufacturing company," interest in working on mechanical equipment, familiarity with computers and data entry and you should be a team player.
You'd also have to pass health and safety tests before you start.
Here are some of the duties you'd be performing as a production operator, according to the job listing:
Support the plant's different production lines
Operate equipment and/or computerized systems
Process, file or package different products
Wash equipment and maintain the work environment
The gig also comes with benefits: basic group insurance covered 100% by the employer and a pension plan with up to 8% employer contribution. There's medical staff on-site, a store where you can get employee discounts, free parking, a cafeteria where you can purchase food and social activities, like food trucks.
