    it is a crap shoot depending on what you are talking about --- therefore the population of the city proper of montreal is larger than boston, but the population of the metropolitan area of boston is larger than montreal, and montreal is almost twice the size in square miles

    boston - city proper 617,594 - metropolitan area 4,500,000 - 89.63 sq mi

    montreal - city proper 1,649,519 - metropolitan area 3,824,221 - 1,644 sq mi

    "The city proper ... (has) a population of 617,594 ... (the) metropolitan area called Greater Boston, home to 4.5 million people and the tenth-largest metropolitan area in the country."

    "(Montreal's) metropolitan area population of 3,824,221 ... The city of Montreal proper (has) a population of 1,649,519."

    Montreal metro area: 4,258 km^2

    Boston metro area: 11,683 km^2

    Looks like Boston is a lot bigger.
