Drake? In Montreal? So many stars coming in the city lately, but we too can't believe it! Still hot from his moment with Madonna last night, Drake just announced his new "Jungle" Tour in support of his latest album "If You're Reading This It's Too Late".
Drake already surprised the city last November, doing an impromptu performance at PARTYNEXTDOOR's show and left fans drooling for some more of his Drakeness. Somebody's prayers have been answered and Aubrey will be at the Bell Center on May 31st 2015. I mean, are you as excited as we are for this?
Women will lead five of Quebec's eight largest cities following the 2021 municipal elections.
The biggest headline of the night may have been Valérie Plante's triumph over old foe Denis Coderre in Montreal, but across the province, the faces of municipal politics have become more gender-balanced.
According to the latest counts and projections, France Bélisle (Gatineau), Catherine Fournier (Longueuil), Évelyne Beaudin (Sherbrooke) and Julie Dufour (Saguenay) are all also on their way to their respective (and figurative) city hall corner offices.
In Quebec City, it seemed for a while like Marie-Josée Savard would join them. Multiple outlets had even called the election for her until the vote count for her opponent surged into the evening. Bruno Marchand ultimately claimed victory.
Mayor Plante commented on the historic nature of her second mandate in her victory speech Sunday night.
"Four years ago, Montrealers elected the first woman mayor in the history of the City of Montreal," she said.
"Tonight, they told us again, 'yes, this mayor, we're going to continue to work with her, we trust her!'"
This year, for the first time, Montrealers will have two women leading the city, as Projet Montréal's Dominique Ollivier is set to take over as president of the Executive Committee.

Jesperi Kotkaniemi is back in Montreal for the first time since his dramatic summer exodus to Carolina to face the Montreal Canadiens and this kind of feels like seeing the ex you're still in love with.
And while there probably won't be any bad blood between the players, the fans could definitely have a thing or two to say.
According to reports, Kotkaniemi is happy in his new city and new team. Joining another three Finnish compatriots in North Carolina, KK is apparently feeling right at home away from the bright lights of Montreal.
There's no doubt that living in Raleigh is definitely a change from living in hockey-mad Montreal. In a state where NCAA basketball is (apparently) bigger than the NHL, it must be nice for a professional hockey player to be able to live in relative anonymity and focus on just playing the game.
