Montreal Geography Trivia No. 26

Here’s one I’m not 100% sure on the answer to. So any prizes granted will be conditional on someone not finding a better answer.

What are the shortest and longest complete street names in Montreal (excluding numbered streets)?

By “complete,” I mean including identifiers such as “rue” “avenue” or “boulevard”. For the purposes of this exercise, the French names only will be used.

UPDATE: So far the best guesses are:

Shortest: Rue Ann, Rue Guy, Rue Roy

Longest: Rue du Square Sir-George-Étienne-Cartier

Can anyone top that?

  1. Corinthian Rick

    That Maggy Burgess seemed like an awfully long street name, should just be called Liverpool, as it is on the other wide of W-ton.

  2. Michel K

    These aren’t verified so someone may still come up with a better answer

    For shortest, I’m going to say Rue Guy (6 letters)
    For longest, I’m going to say Boulevard de la Rivière-des-Prairies up in RDP.
    (33 letters excluding spaces, including hyphens)

  3. mare

    These are strong contenders:
    Rue Roy (7)
    Rue du Square Sir-George-Étienne-Cartier (40)
    (The city of Montreal uses that name; google maps removes the “Rue du” part.)
