Hmmm.. Less than you might expect. Montreal is a comparatively safe city. Now... if they were offering unsupervised trips to, say, Bridgeport... I might have an issue.

Heh, I spent a week in Montreal and went to absolutely no strip clubs. I was with the girlfriend, though.

On the bright side, I remember almost none of the trip (was high).
2004-10-20 04:19:55 PM  
I am shocked and appalled, seeing how I was never offered a sex and booze trip while in high school.

If you need drugs in Montreal head to the local burger king restroom. Easily purchased every imaginable drug at least twice a night.
2004-10-20 04:36:06 PM  
Ahhhh... to see Montreal through the eyes of a testonerone-fuelled noob (everyone under the age of 23 is a 'noob' to me).
2004-10-20 04:37:18 PM  
Of course, 'noobs' can probably spell 'testosterone' correctly...

Can't be any worse than my supervised high school trip to Mexico I spent wasted and ended up going ot the hospital for a dislocated shoulder.

Drinking age in Canada is 19. High school seniors aren't old enough to drink. Can they even gamble at 18?

/Will go to Canada some day
2004-10-20 06:34:38 PM  
Drinking age in Canada is 19

18 in Quebec. Not sure if gambling is 18 or 19 here though. I tend to avoid all those blinky, flashy places.
2004-10-20 08:16:41 PM  
drinking age in quebec is supposedly 18.

i say "supposedly", since my experience when underage in la belle province was always "if you can see over the bar and order a beer, you are allowed to drink". i got served in quebec when i was 14, and i was a very young looking 14 year old.

club super sexe is tre cul.

won tons of money at the casino.

got really drunk.

oogled transformer hookers.

montreal is much fun.
2004-10-20 11:57:37 PM  

you are indeed correct; drinking age in PQ (Quebec for the rest) is 18. Same for gambling, strip clubs, pron stores and buying smokes. aaah...spent many a night in PQ when I was too young for the rest of Canada. PQ saw me for what I really was...a drunken SOB in an underaged body.

And now I'm legal in all of Canada, so I can do my boozing wherever the hell I want.

and Montreal is a great city for night life. Lots clubs, booze and horny french chicks.

Hmmm... I had a supervised trip to Paris. Except it was post-graduation, I was 18, and I don't ever have to deal with the supervisors again.

/Paris smells like ass.
//but not because of us.
2004-10-20 11:59:14 PM  
Come to Quebec:
Lose all your money, forget what you did, get sick and come home with a weird VD.
2004-10-21 12:02:28 AM  
That's sounds about right Chenry!
2004-10-21 12:02:32 AM  
the yankees just lost it, I repeat, the yankees just lost it WHOO HOOO!
2004-10-21 12:02:58 AM  
I find it funny that they refer to Canada as a foreign country.

"Canada? Is that a country in Europe?"
2004-10-21 12:03:17 AM  
It was a frame up, I tell ya'.
2004-10-21 12:03:47 AM  
The legal drinking age in Quebec, is just a suggestion.

Oh... and touching is permitted at the peelers and rippers, however if you choose the touching, they'll keep their thongs on.

...and thanks to my brother getting married there for an awesome bachelor party! It was worth the drive from TO.

2004-10-21 12:04:22 AM  
Hmm, I might have to try Quebec after trying Germany, Austria, Italy and Mexico unsuccessfully for VD... wait, Sox win. Wasn't it classy of their fans to chant Who's your Daddy to the African American pitcher of Boston ?
2004-10-21 12:06:17 AM  
Where's the link for Yankees lose ?

2004-10-21 12:12:54 AM  
I've been to Montreal for Formula 1 so many times I forgot (because I was so wasted)


Go there. Today. Tomorrow, you will not forget it.

Oh yeah, you will forget most of it.
2004-10-21 12:13:05 AM  
Montreal is awesome. If you can't get laid there you ain't never gonna get laid.

The kids are in danger of going to Tim Horton's and not being able to fit back into the bus?

"Do you find something humorous about the word Catramboner??"
2004-10-21 12:23:59 AM  
No, no, no, wait, the kids haven't been warned not to answer any questions with "I don't know?"

These are high school seniors we're talking about. Have they ever visited friends or relatives at college? Hell, what about next year, when they get to go on equally fun trips, like <shameless plug> the Ski Club of Virginia Tech's annual trip to Mt. Tremblant.</shameless plug>
2004-10-21 12:28:54 AM  
I might have to try Quebec after trying Germany, Austria, Italy and Mexico unsuccessfully for VD

Uhmm.. shouldn't your local crack whore have plenty of VD for ya?
2004-10-21 12:29:08 AM  
lots of pornstars in and around montreal.
2004-10-21 12:31:38 AM  
Whores that a high schooler can afford....
2004-10-21 12:33:21 AM  
I for one hope they don't come -- Montreal has enough imported teens to line up outside the Peel Pub already -- if more show up they might start going to the good bars and annoying the locals.. ;)
2004-10-21 12:36:13 AM  
You wanna come and see us.
Ask Drew about it. He's been here.

/Hope he had his arteries declogged by now.

"dangerous," "unsanctioned" and "unsupervised" sex and booze trip to Canada

...where do i sign up?
2004-10-21 01:06:00 AM  
I've been on one of these. Definitely did not get the whole sex part. The booze is pretty sweet, though.
2004-10-21 01:06:45 AM  
Our school USED to offer those types of trips...I don't think they do anymore though. There was an incident where one of the guys took a piss off the balcony...

Which wouldn't have been an issue....except the balcony was over the main lobby.
2004-10-21 01:11:24 AM  
Sound like the yearly Schoolies party on the Gold Coast over here.

'sept half of the attendies are still under the age of 18 nowadays.

How else would you want to celebrate the end of high school besides getting so drunk, so high and so robbed?
2004-10-21 01:19:26 AM  
Newton's third law? For every action there is an equal and opposite reaction, how does that apply to the article. Sounds more like Murphy's Law to me.

/2 cents
2004-10-21 01:20:41 AM  
With the legal drinking age just 18 in Montreal, Catrambone said even in the tame years, kids still got drunk, threw up and got alcohol poisoning.

Didja ever notice that it's only American youths who destroy themselves with booze and end up on "Girls Gone Wild", while the Canadian and European kids who start drinking wine at age six generally grow up to be pretty reasonable about alcohol?

Maybe there's something to learn from that?
2004-10-21 01:37:23 AM  
When I was in college we all drove up to Windsor. (Age=19).

Damn, I spent the entire weekend either drunk, puking or having sex. The local girls+all the american chicks made for one great weekend. We actually had to share a shower between our two hotel rooms because we filled the bathtub with ice and bottles of booze. Oh, and water slides + completely sh** faced = bad idea.
