Montreal is one of the most important urban centres
in Canada and especially in the St. Lawrence Lowland. This is the official
Web site of Old Montreal, the most historic part of the city. There are
ongoing efforts to preserve Old Montreal as a tourist attraction and important
business centre. The site provides a good map and 150 photographs in the
Grand Tour link. This site can help students understand the importance
of preserving the past as part of a plan for future prosperity.
