Honestly, you can't go wrong with any of your options. There are high-quality people at both the schools.
I know this is hard to believe: but try and focus more on the environment there than the prestige of the schools or the individuals or whatever. It does matter who your supervisor, but it matters a lot more who you are, so that means focus on whichever subject interests you more.
And even if the Physics GRE was still offered in Montreal, the April date is full for Montreal and further dates have not been released just yet.
