22. Montreal's Empty Storefronts

DISPONIBLE SUR LE WEB POUR :  4 semaines et 3 jours  4 sem. et 3 j
DIFFUSION TÉLÉ :
Mardi à 3h, 6h30 et 19h

Montreal is enjoying a bit of an economic boom, with low unemployment and a steadily growing local economy. But that hasn't always translated to street-level success. There are a lot of empty storefronts in once popular shopping areas. Some stores are the victim of increased online competition, others the victim of increased rents. Some say that rent control for businesses may solve the problem. But is it really the answer? We ask the experts.

Invité(es) : Jimmy Zoubris, Special Advisor to the Mayor Toula Drimonis, Journalist Egbert Gaye, Editor, Community Contact Martin Messier, President, Quebec Landlords Association
