Montreal: A City of Trailblazers and Legends

To say that Montreal native Rick Andreoli is incredibly proud of his hometown’s history is a huge understatement.  He believes that there is so much to learn about Montreal, the greatest city in Canada, from its history to its monuments and its people.

Yes, Montreal has seen some the greatest trailblazers and legends in its 800-year history.  From the first settlers, the St. Lawrence Iroquoians, and the first European to have reached the area, the immortal Jacques Cartier, to the people who established the North West Company and ushered in the golden era of fur trading, to everyone who followed, Montreal truly has been home to some of the most fascinating figures in history.
