Montreal is in decline. It is the poorest of North America’s large cities.

Clearly, the challenge is economic. Montreal does have a growth sector, that of intellectual property in the arts, culture, engineering, technology and life sciences. Still we must double current performance of all the rest to turn things around.

Entrepreneurship will be the driver of this turnaround.

We have to create the most attractive environment for Canadian and foreign entrepreneurs.

This calls for a reinvented governance.

As a major city in North America, Montreal must be able to compete on an equal footing with the others. Future development requires that our elected leaders be free of the parochial policy constraints of the Government of Quebec.
