Weird Quebec stories are in abundance, and MTL Blog is here to remind you of some recent ones.\nFrom Trudeau getting egged to a loose gator on the street, La Belle Province has had its fair share of strange times in the past little while.\nTake a trip down memory lane below!\nVisit MTLBlog for more headlines.\nThere is no shortage of weird stories here in Quebec. Whether they are reported on or not, our province is unique in the sense that we can get bizarre and absurd stories in two languages. The people here can also be a strange and wonderful bunch if sometimes bordering the problematic but hey - at least no one will accuse Quebecers of being boring.\nIn the last six months, elections, social movements, and vast policy changes have dominated the headlines. In between the political drama and upheaval, we've seen everything from an egg being thrown at the Prime Minister to a "unicorn" poutine.\nWith all strange stories come reactions and those are perhaps my favourite part of a weird story. Think about it - the smallest thing can set off the population of Quebec. We have no patience for disrespecting recycling or our kids getting addicted to Fortnite.\nOf course, some of the weirdest stories probably weren't even reported on and for that, we apologize. We promise to do our very best to provide only the silliest content from now on.\nWithout further ado, here are eight of the weirdest Quebec stories to have been reported in the last six months!\nA Gator Was On The Loose In Montreal\nJust an alligator crossing Jarry, no big deal 🐊 #montreal #shook #mtlmoments pic.twitter.com/EEMch6aGK1— mayssam samaha (@mayssamaha) December 15, 2019\nIn mid-December, an alligator was spotted casually walking across rue Jarry in the Villeray neighbourhood. The wayward gator escaped from its pen and was quickly scooped up by its owner but not before becoming a local legend.\nThis is perhaps the most chill gator in the world and of course, it lives in Montreal and jaywalks. In terms of random events, you can't get any better than this.\nThis Cute Town Wants Weed & Festivals To Grow Its Economy\nView this post on Instagram Les petits villages du #quebec figés dans le temps 🌱🌳🌿 A post shared by Pierre-Luc Perron (@pl_perron) on Jul 1, 2019 at 7:48pm PDT\nIn July 2019, a story that is as feel-good as it is odd came out of rural Quebec. The small town of Desbiens, experiencing an economic downturn, decided to declare itself open for business to cannabis and music festivals.\nA resurgence in tourism to the area inspired the town's mayor to petition the government to build a cannabis production factory to rejuvenate the town's economy and bring it back to its former glory.\nToronto's "Unicorn Poutine" Sparks Outrage\nView this post on Instagram THE UNICORN 🦄: When people think of unicorns they think of a special, mythical creatures that symbolize magic, miracles and enchantment.

The song is as catchy as it is educational and people across the province absolutely loved it.\nAlaclair asks you to remember just remember one simple rule: "Métal - Verre - Plastique/Carton - Papier - that’s it."\nLegault Says Malala Can Only Teach in Quebec if She Removes Her Religious Symbol\n"She can teach in Quebec if she accepts to remove a religious sign." @SebBovetSRC presses François Legault on the Malala Yousafzai photo controversy. Read the background: https://t.co/h6yzhvOOHx #qcpoli pic.twitter.com/EdWINusF4h— CBC Montreal (@CBCMontreal) July 8, 2019\nThe strangest minor Bill 21 scandal came in its nascent days when Quebec Premier François Legault was questioned about a photo posted on his Education Minister's Twitter page. In the photo, Education Minister, Jean-François Roberge posed with activist Malala Yousafzai.\nA secularist education minister and education activist who wears a headscarf? Impossible!\nWhen questioned about the photo and whether or not Malala would be forced to remove her religious symbols if she taught in Quebec, Legault responded that "she can teach in Quebec if she accepts to remove her religious sign."\nTrudeau Gets Egged At Climate March\nA man attempted to attack Liberal Leader Justin Trudeau at the #climatestrikemontreal. Watch as our cameras caught the RCMP Protective Detail taking him down. #cdnpoli #elxn43 pic.twitter.com/EdrS10M4p5— Michel Boyer (@BoyerMichel) September 27, 2019\nThere were mixed feelings about Prime Minister Justin Trudeau's attendance at Montreal's Climate March in September 2019. Though most of the march was without issue, one man decided that throwing eggs at the Prime Minister was a good way to protest climate change.\nThe man was arrested and no one was injured in the incident, but it certainly was one of the strangest things to happen to the Prime Minister.\nMontreal Lawyers Fight Against Fornite Addiction\nHere in Quebec, Canada, a class action lawsuit is in the works against @EpicGames and @FortniteGame because it is believed to create an addiction similar to like smoking...Parents blaming developers for their children's addiction... How ridiculous is this?!#Fortnite #Epic— BoonSlevin (@BoonSlevin) October 4, 2019\nIn October 2019, Montreal law firm Calex Légal launched a class action lawsuit against Fortnite creators Epic Games for getting people addicted to the hit online multiplayer game. Lawyers likened the game to cocaine and even said that the game was designed to make the game addictive to children.\nWhile litigation is pending as Epic Games' terms of service stipulate that users can't sue the company, the lawyers are confident that the case will stand up in Quebec courts. Good luck!\nA Mystery Pink House Appears & No One Knows How Or Why\n@mtlblog @mtlgazette @CTVMontreal The old Canada Malting Plant at the Lachine Canal. Photos were taken on Sept. 12, 18 and today the 27th 2019. Who is painting those structures at the top of the Plant? Last week the shed was painted on one side, now at least 2 & the other cabin? pic.twitter.com/fExE2wCLP7— ClearChannel (@channel_clear) September 27, 2019\nSomehow, someway, a person climbed an abandoned factory tower in St-Henri in October and painted a small cabin bright pink. It quickly caught the attention of locals and has been the biggest mystery in town.\nIf that wasn't weird enough, the same mystery artist scaled the tower once again to decorate his masterpiece for Christmas in late-December. We still don't know who this person is!\nWe're only less than a month into 2020, so expect plenty more weird and wild stories to be making headlines in the coming year!\nThere are stories everywhere.
