The expert is vouching for a link that runs from Hôpital Maisonneuve-Rosemont in the east end through Rosemont and Plateau that connects with the orange line at Sherbrooke and the green line at Saint-Laurent before ending at Gare Centrale.

I stand by my gigadollar. We had this debate years ago.
If you want to guarantee that no one understands you, rather than just some, why not switch to Kenyan Shillings?

The decimal comma doesn't help either - few know what that is, outside Quebec. Especially since Canada's switched back to officially using a comma as a thousands separator!

It certainly isn't the local usage - and this is a local forum.

You can standby your 1,5G$ all you want, but 99.9999% of the population and 100% of this board will not... Wait make that 99.9999% since you do and maybe someone else does

Speed limits signs in Mexico use the RED circle around the number. Canada should as well.

St-Pierre & Miquelon is a French territory.
In these islands, road signs are the same as in France, even if we are
in North America, about 30 kilometers from Newfoundland !​

At least there are no roads on the Hans Island shared between Canada and Denmark.
