Montrealers will always tell you that we have the best bagels in the world. One of the things that give them their unique flavour and texture is the fact that they're cooked in wood-burning ovens. But those ovens violate a new anti-pollution by-law in the city. A fix for the problem will cost bagel shops more than $100,000. We ask if there's a compromise available, or if we may be seeing the end of the Montreal bagel.
