I have to disagree with you. Yes, we have lost many, many beautiful buildings, but the massacre was in the 1950's through the 1970's. In the 70's and 80's, Montreal was at its most ugly: full of surface parking lots everywhere it looked like a bombed city, very depressing. Today, the city is much improved compare to 30 years ago and it never stops to beautify itself (quartier International, restoration of Old Montreal, Quartier des spectacles, échangeur des Pins, DeMaisonneuve, Saint-Laurent, square Dorchester, Amherst, Old Port, Griffintown, Canal Lachine, Place d'Armes, Square Victoria, Place Jean-Paul Riopelle, Quartier Concordia, etc. It goes on and on.
