Should Montreal have more pedestrian-only streets?

If you're a true Montrealer, you know that one of the best things the city has to offer in the summer is its pedestrian-only streets. From Sainte-Catherine to Mont-Royal and all the way to Wellington street, many roads in the city offer a pedestrian experience, allowing Montrealers to enjoy certain activities by foot (think shopping, terraces and ice cream shops). 

Despite these already-existing options, Montrealers have taken to Reddit to express how more streets in Montreal should block off cars, especially in the summer. 

In the comments, the most popular (and most realistic) options seemed to be the Saint-Laurent Boulevard, Saint-Hubert street, Montreal's entire Old Port, the Mont-Royal Avenue from Mont-Royal all the way to Fullum, and Wellington street in Verdun. 

Among the comments, some suggestions seem to be a bit too far off from what Montreal might actually be able to offer, such as highways 20, 25, and 15...

We wouldn't go as far as to say that Montreal's highways should be transformed, but some of the previous options seem realistic enough!

Do you think Montreal should have more pedestrian-only streets?
