We have a new magazine in town: Montreal Centre-Ville. Produced by Quebecor (and we all know how much respect they have for the art of journalism), it’s a bilingual magazine about downtown.
Its inaugural issue has some pieces by well-known Montrealers like Dennis Trudeau and Melissa Auf der Maur. But what they say isn’t really interesting. There’s no new insight into the city (certainly not for anyone who lives here already).
I’m all for having new original media in this town, but I’ve seen better stuff out of a Transcontinental-owned community weekly.
