"The Scots, many of them of humble origin, were successful in Montreal. they were in the right place at the right time with the right combination of education, religious morals, a strict work ethic, personal ambition, and not least, the vision to see Montreal as the future Canadian metropolis. Looking beyond the stern official portraits and preconceptions we discover how deeply the Scottish thistle is rooted in Montreal's soil."
