Montreal - Post Report Question and Answers
Pollution index (Good, Moderate, Unhealthy, or Very Unhealthy)?
Good; same as any North American city. Not the cleanest city I've ever visited - lots of trash in the center of town. For two weeks in the spring, when the snow melts and all the garbage that's been thrown on it for months melts, too, the city smells like the third world. - Dec 2009
The pollution seems light, however if you hate the smell of smoke this is not the place for you. It's everywhere. - Sep 2009
One of the least polluted cities I've ever been in. Sometimes the snow gets a bit brown on the streets, but inevitably a few more feet fall and cover it. - Jan 2009
