Who’s leaving the island?

Analysis apparently shows that people choosing to leave the city for the suburbs were mostly already living around its periphery. Central city dwellers are more likely to stay entrenched. There will, of course, be plenty of exceptions – and I don’t agree with the writer of this piece that Villeray, St-Michel or Park Ex are peripheral.

In any case, the pandemic has hastened an exodus from the island as people go further afield seeking their dream house.
