Montreal history repeats itself, again and again

A major project to translate Montreal's Charter of Rights and Responsibilities has found significant parallels between Montreal in the late 16th and early 17th centuries and the Montreal of today. Dr James Archibald of McGill University's Department of Translation and Written Communication tells Marc Montgomery how the city is still grappling with some of the same intercultural and linguistic issues as it did in colonial times.( Photo: Istockphoto )
