[Today's location: Montréal, Québec]

Montréal, Québec (45, -73). Nicely centered on the island of Montreal, but also includes suburbs of Laval and the South Shore. Extends north into the Laurentians, includes half of St-Jérôme and almost Joliette. Almost ends exactly at the Canada/US border with only a slight bit of Vermont included. The western boundary clips the edge of Ile-Perrot. The eastern boundary falls in the Eastern Townships/Centre of Québec, with Bedford, Farnham and Ste-Hyacinthe located just outside the graticule.


Montréal, Québec (45, -73). L'île de Montréal est située au centre du "graticule". Comprend l'île au complet, y compris les banlieues de Laval et une bonne section de la rive-sud. S'étend au nord dans les Laurentides, jusqu'au centre de Saint-Jérôme. Se rend presqu'à Joliette. S'arrête presque précisément à la bordure Canada/États-Unis, avec une très petite parcelle du Vermont incluse. La bordure ouest frôle l'île Perrot. La bordure est tombe dans les Cantons de l'Est / Centre du Québec; Bedford, Farnham et Ste-Hyacinthe sont situées tout juste à l'extérieur du "graticule".
