Vast caves discovered under city

MONTREAL—Only 10 metres below the streets and parks of a residential Montreal neighbourhood there lies a network of ice age caverns that no human had ever seen until a few weeks ago.

The 15,000-year-old caves were discovered in October by a pair of amateur explorers who drilled and hammered through the ancient limestone walls of an existing cave to reveal the vast chamber beyond.
