MONTREAL — In a very real sense, Montreal looms large in Quebec. About 23 per cent of the province’s population (and its tax base) lives within the city’s 4,258 square kilometres, along with nearly 30 per cent of its businesses, the bulk of its startups and the near-entirety of its head offices and media corporations—not to mention the economic and cultural heft that comes with them. Also: Go Habs go. We ostensibly secular Quebecers don’t have any other hockey deity worthy of our prayers.
