If you read The Main, you’re a proud Montrealer and have a thirst to know more about your city. You defend your city against those who don’t understand it. You smile inside when Montreal is referenced in a Hollywood film. When New Yorkers brag, you tell them that they don’t know what a real bagel tastes like. You love your city.

Take a look below. You may be shocked to see what amazing creations are Montreal inventions.
