Why Canada’s biggest city is the least connected on the planet
With its busy, fast-paced life and high unemployment, Montreal is one of the least-connected cities on the globe.
CBC News has compiled a list of the top 10 cities with the fewest people connected.
“It’s a pretty good representation of where Montreal sits right now,” said Chris Beaulieu, the executive director of the Montreal Area Network of Cities.
Beaulie was born in Montreal and raised in Montreal.
“The fact that we are in the top ten is really indicative of the fact that our people are in this city and they’re doing really well,” he said.
“We’re not at the top, we’re in the middle.”
Here are the 10 cities where the average Canadian lives in: Montreal, Que.
— 9,564 people connect through email and social media, the most in the country, with the second most connected through the Internet.

In the GTA, Montreal ranks in the bottom 10 for average numbers of people connected via social and email.
In Toronto, Toronto, Quebec City and Ottawa, Montreal ranked in the 10th, 12th and 17th.
“There’s not much difference in our data,” said Rob Hickey, CEO of Montreal Area Networks.
“What we see is that our cities are still connected.
That’s why the numbers are so high.”
A quick tour of some of Montreal’s more connected cities: Montreal’s network of about 300 public transit systems.
— A network of 6,000 kilometres of bus routes.
— More than 5,000 public transit buses and more than 2,500 bus routes throughout the city.
— About 1,400 parks, green spaces and public spaces.
— The city has over 60,000 parks and about 3,000 green spaces.
Montreal is also home to more than 1,000 churches, churches, and religious groups.
— An international research centre at McGill University that studies the social and economic impact of technology and communication.
— Montreal has more than 25,000 residents with some form of employment and about 2,400 full-time students in the city’s public schools.
— Some 2,000 people have jobs in the food industry.
— There are more than 4,000 food processing plants, some of which are operated by a network of companies.
— As a result of the financial crisis of 2008, many businesses have shut down.
— Since 2009, Montreal has lost more than $200 million in economic activity.
— While there have been some changes to the city in recent years, some aspects of the city have remained the same.
Montreal’s metro area has seen an overall population decline since 2008, with about a million people moving out of the area.
Many of the people leaving Montreal are millennials.
“When you look at the numbers, the cities are all over the map.
They’re all not necessarily the same places.
There are different demographics, different ethnicities,” said Hickey.
“I think it’s important to understand that these numbers reflect a city that is in transition.
It’s a big city with lots of different communities.”
Some cities in Quebec are even more connected than Montreal, but with different population trends.
“A lot of these big cities are a bit of a magnet,” said Beaulien.
“They’re attracting younger people who are more engaged in the social media landscape.
It may be a bit more social media savvy.
That can lead to a bit lower participation.”
In some areas, like St.-Jérôme in the Quebec city of Montréal, the average number of people who have internet access is nearly half of Montreal, and the average is only 1,250 people.
In Montreal, the city is also one of Canada’s most connected cities.
According to Statistics Canada, Montreal had the second-highest average number (behind Toronto) of people using social media in the Greater Toronto Area.
As a consequence, Montreal was ranked third for people with access to social media via email, followed by Vancouver and Edmonton.
Montreal also has a reputation as a place where young people go to find a place to socialize.
The number of youth attending school in the City of Montreal has doubled in the last decade.
The majority of the young people in Montreal are from the Lower Mainland, but a growing number of those people are also from Quebec.
While Montreal’s urban population is growing, it’s still a city with a lot of diversity.
According the 2011 census, Montreal saw an average population of about 4,800 people.
As more people move into the city, Montreal
