Even If You Hate Fall In Montreal, Seeing This Will Make Your Day 100% Better

Drones have become such a buzz word almost always used in tandem with something negative, like war drones or bomb drones, or (less awful) Amazon delivery drones. Flying robots don't need to be used solely for evil, as the high-flying technology can also capture moments of beauty, like Mount Royal in the height of fall's vibrant foliage.

K. Bayquoi, a retired computer engineer and one-time classical musician, found a passion for aerial drone photography during retirement, and has since created several videos showcasing Montreal's many landscapes. The latest of Bayquoi's drone videos is "A Fall Morning at Mount Royal Park," which shows off the wonderful colours of the season like no place in Montreal can.

Taking a full tour of the mountain. going through trees, trails, and structures, the video is nothing short of epic. The music definitely adds to the epic-effect, making the video seem like an intro to a Zelda game, in the best way. See if you agree in the video below.

Montreal's old Royal Victoria Hospital sits largely abandoned between the downtown and Mount Royal park.

As officials figure out what to do with much of the former hospital campus (some buildings will become part of McGill University), non-profit groups Héritage Montréal and Les amis de la montagne say the site presents an opportunity to reconnect the downtown core with the mountain and expand the public realm.

Mayor Plante's Party Says Montreal Buildings Should Stay Shorter Than The Mountain

Ever wonder why Montreal is shorter than other North American cities?

You might have noticed that the height of buildings in Montreal is shorter than those in other North American cities. That's by design. And now, Mayor Valérie Plante's party, Projet Montréal, is committing to keep it that way.

"Since 1992, a consensus has existed in Montreal regarding the maximum height of buildings," the party wrote on Facebook. "According to this agreement, Montreal's constructions must not obscure the views of Mount Royal — and therefore must not peak higher than the mountain's highest level, which is more than 232 metres above sea level."
