We have so many almost-empty, architecturally-significant churches that even the most progressive city council would be hard-pressed to turn them all into libraries and community centres.
There is a beautiful public library in the Mile-End district (northwestern Plateau-Mont-Royal) that is a conversion of the local Anglican church. Not to many Anglicans left around there. The Anglican parish used the funds from the sale to buy a nearby triplex; it is a centre for hard-pressed people who (still) live in that gentrifying area.
The Library, formerly Church of the Ascension:http://www.imtl.org/edifices/Bibliotheque-du-Mile-end.php
The parish wanted their church sold either to another place of worship or something socially and culturally useful. The library has kept the Edwardian stained-glass windows and the wooden ceiling, which make the reading rooms very pleasant indeed.
By the way, my score is 92: Walker's paradise. Daily errands do not require a car.
That is true, but as others have said, it seems to focus on more upscale establishments, is out of date, and seems not to understand French. The closest Restaurant or Bar is "Service aux toilettes"... What???? Alas I don't have a Chinese Food grocery within 90m, unless they mean my corner dépanneur, run by a Chinese family. They have a few Asian staples, but no fresh tofu, bean sprouts, or any kind of fruit or vegetable except for a few lemons, limes and bananas. There is a very nice new corner store, run by a youngish Tunisian guy, that has a modest but fresh assortment of fruit, veg (including salads), cheeses (including Greek feta) and other real food. But it is probably too new to register on the site.
The public transport score is 100% (I'm about ten minutes' walk from two different métro line and there are buses even closer) and 95% for cycling (flat as a pancake, excellent lanes). I find that score too high as we still don't have our cycle lane on my street or any nearby north-south street. We are getting there, but the city is dragging its heels.
I think the score should also include accessibility for disabled, elderly or stroller-pushing people. Above all, it is a shame that Jean-Talon métro is NOT among those slated for retrofitting a lift to allow easy access to that important métro station,with two lines, for those groups of people.
