    Montreal is a city in the Canadian province of Quebec. It is the largest city in the province, the second-largest in the country and the fifteenth-largest in North America. Originally called Ville-Marie, or "City of Mary", it is named after Mount Royal, the triple-peaked hill located in the heart of the city, or Mont Réal as it was spelled in Middle French. The city is located on the Island of Montreal, which took its name from the same source as the city, and a few much smaller peripheral islands, the largest of which is Île Bizard. As of 2011, the city of Montreal had a population of 1,649,519. Montreal's metropolitan area had a population of 3,824,221 and a population of 1,886,481 in the urban agglomeration of Montreal, all of the municipalities on the Island of Montreal included. French is the city's official language and is also the language spoken at home by 56.9% of the population in the city of Montreal proper, followed by English at 18.6% and 19.8% other languages. In the larger Montreal Census Metropolitan Area, 67.9% of the population speaks French at home, compared to 16.5% who speak English. 56% of the population are able to speak both English and French. Montreal is the second largest primarily French-speaking city in the world, after Paris.

Examples of Montreal in a Sentence

  1. Karen Khachanov:

    I cannot deny that I got a little bit crazy, but Im really a bit disappointed ... with the crowd as well. I dont have anything against when they cheer for Felix. Its normal. Hes the home favorite, especially from Montreal. I wish they could cheer the same way in Russia for me. But still, not when I miss or not wishing me to miss, screaming during the points. Its disrespectful.

  2. Roger Federer:

    I am disappointed that I won't be playing in Montreal because it's a tournament and a city that I really enjoy and has incredible fans, my family and I have always received first-class treatment from tournament director, Eugene Lapierre, and his team and I hope to be back in the future.

  3. David Howman:

    You mold your style according the presidential requirements, i was a lawyer, a barrister who went to court every day. Every judge is different and you adapt your argument according to the judge so it sort of comes naturally. Howman, who often represented athletes in New Zealand who could not afford his services and paid in cricket bats and All-Blacks rugby jerseys, has been there through all the highs and lows. When WADA opened in 2003, drugs in sport had already become a worldwide epidemic and fair play was merely a quaint idea. Doping was firmly entrenched in the sporting culture, largely tolerated, if not tacitly accepted, by those who competed in everything from cycling's Tour de France to baseball's World Series. With no meaningful out-of-competition testing, a mish-mash of sanctions and banned substance lists, entrepreneurs such as BALCO mastermind Victor Conte operated in near impunity, pushing out designer steroids faster than tests could be developed to detect them. From a small headquarters in Montreal, WADA has grown into a global agency with four regional offices and 35 laboratories, although four are currently under suspension.

  4. Chief Executive Steve Williams:

    Rail into Montreal is marginal and rail to the Gulf Coast is not economic at this time so we are currently not railing to the Gulf Coast.

  5. Craig Sauve:

    The pit bull-style dog will no longer be considered a dangerous breed in Montreal.
