Maybe it is time that a Commission for the Integrity of the "Montreal Bagel" is established. With associated rules like geographical restrictions (I.e. a two km radius from the intersection of St. Viateur and St. Laurent). etc... Suggestions for other criteria are welcome.
On a recent trip to Hamilton, Ontario (the donut capital and home of Tim Horton's). I took the following photo in a supermarket bakery. Click on the thumbnail below, it speaks volumes.
