Rooftop motorized winch used to elevate work scaffold containing these two workers riding it flat against this Montreal skyscraper side to do their job.
Montreal is booming with many tall office and condominium structures being erected all over the place downtown funded by mostly overseas investors money.
After Vancouver and Toronto, Montreal seems to be attracting a substantial amount of this money perhaps, because land is still cheap compared to the other two cities coupled with a growing population of thousands of new arrivals including the recent immigration cue jumpers from the USA.
Few know the reasons why foreigners invest in any particular area however, Canada is probably one of the best places on the globe to do so because it is big, relatively secure, and still inexpensive with a mostly civilized, growing, middle-class, high-percentage literate, population.
