It being St. Patrick’s Day and all, I thought it fitting to celebrate with a little story set in my hometown of Montreal, a city with a great history of Irish immigrants. Ste.

Ice hockey was invented in Montreal, and the greatest arena of them all, the Montreal Forum, was located on that street as well.
