Now that the weather is starting to cool off and tourist season is winding down, the topic of caleches in Montreal's Old Port seems to have disappeared from most people's minds. But this incident is the perfect example of why it's still an issue.
The Anti-Caleche Defense Coalition posted a video the other day of a caleche driver, who they claim "seems drunk as usual," driving his carriage onto the square and then hanging a left onto Rue Calliere, which is a one-way street...going the opposite way. Apparently this happens daily and is a serious problem that the cops aren't addressing. Luckily there weren't any cars coming or else this could have caused some serious problems.

Founder Corinne Asseraf "imagined the Gallery 203 as a place of discovery, of meeting and exchange between artists and art enthusiasts" and you can feel exactly that the second you walk through the doors.
The mastermind behind all of this, Asseraf, has such a warming, kind presence, which is reason enough to take a visit to Galerie 203 whenever you're strolling through Old Montreal. She let MTL Blog know that anyone and everyone is welcome in her gallery.
