I couldn't better express the issue with the Mtl scene, so you beat me to it.

In short... it is a "scene". Nothing more. People get on it once in a while, put off a show, then disappear back in the audience. That's all there is. There hasn't been known squats or similar infrastructural projects in two decades (that last more than a few hours of spectacular bragging, I mean), and the gatherings when they happen leave much to be desired, especially on the side of having quality conversation and building ties.

"But but but the Mtl bookfair!". Nope. You know it's shit, and run by activists, commies and academics. Furthermore, it's been an online thing last year and pretty sure it'll remain like this for a while. Double plus ungood.
