That and like previously mentioned, Calgary's not competing with other international airports, and Calgary's not anywhere close to any other major hub airport. Also, most of the tourism in Montreal comes from the USA and Ontario, and most americans and Ontarians simply drive here.
That being said, Montreal nevertheless doesn't get the tourism it should get. And now that the Grand Prix is gone, and the recession, things won't be much better anytime soon.
