Over the last few decades, Montrealers have become used to companies moving west along the 401 to Toronto, but on Tuesday, Canada's largest publicly traded drug company announced it would be moving from Mississauga to Laval. Multinational pharmaceutical company Valeant will be moving to new offices in Laval, creating 50 new jobs and maintaining another 300 already in place. "We just found the environment, the people, the talent that is here in Quebec in terms of life sciences and pharmaceuticals to be a terrific place, because we intend to grow our company and I think there is a stronger base of talent here than is in Toronto," said company president Michael Pearson.
