Hi refer to the Import list to be more precise.
For the translation, my contact at city of Montreal is telling me that they are preparing an english translation but this is not yet available.
Below is my own translation of 4.1 and 4.2
4.0 Source Indication
4.1 You must include and maintain the following notice on your copies, modifications, translations and distributions of data:
Contains data reproduced, modified, translated or distributed "as is" with permission of the City of Montreal.
4.2 If a product contains value-added data, you must include the following opinion on this product:
This product contains licensed data given "as is" in accordance with the license agreement for the use of data from the City of Montreal. The granting of the license is not an endorsement of the product by the City of Montreal.

>It’s good to see more municipalities opening up their data and open data catching on. Seeing more municipalities writing their own licenses isn’t so good.
>Now, on to the more practical questions needed to use the data.
>Could you provide a translation of 4.1 and 4.2 of their license? Are these identical to CC BY?
>One of the problems with CC BY is the vagueness of the attribution. Some cities regard our attribution as not meeting the CC BY attribution requirements, although I guess that isn’t an issue here because they’ve explicitly said it’s compatible with ODbL, so I have to assume that meeting the ODbL attribution requirements (met by listing on http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Contributors) is sufficient for them.
>What’s the Import Workgroup you refer to?
>Lastly, cadastral data is probably the least exciting type of data for OSM. Other data like roads, addresses and even buildings is more useful.

>After consultation with thecommunity, the city of Montreal changed its OpenData license the28 February 2013. It is clearly stated on the page of the license:
>It is similar to a Creative Commons license CC-BY. For example, it is compatible with the more restrictive type ODbL licenses such as OpenStreetMap.
>On the Open Data day,Saturday, February 23, representatives of the city have also offered to provide cadastre data. This would greatly contribute to enrich the map of Montreal. If people are interested in contributing to this issue, please contact me.
>This is a good news for the community of free data, developers and all those who believe in a greater participation of citizens. The city of Montreal, by amending its license, contributes to develop an eco-system where OpenDatacreators OpenSource developpers, governments and citizens collectively contribute to enrich the information and dialogue.
>We should of course assure with the Import Workgroup that this license is compatible with OSM.
>We hope that this example will be followed by others, including the Government of Quebec and Quebec City.
