It’s no surprise that the Divas are opinionated and we’re not afraid to let it be known. The New York Times came out with “36 Hours in Montreal,” it advised their readers on how best to spend 36 hours in our beautiful city. Everyone was talking about it and posting it on their social media; Montreal was getting some love from a big time newspaper.
Unfortunately, after reading it, the Divas weren’t impressed. In fact, some suggestions made by the article, which you can read HERE, kept us up at night. We wrote our own version of how we think you should spend 36 hours in Montreal, “36 Hours in Montreal: a Response to the NY Times.” It got so much love that Global Montreal invited us on live television for Foodie Friday with Camille Ross, they agree with our opinion and wanted to chat about it.
