The Best Photos, Videos & Stories Shared By Montrealers This Week
Because the best reporter is YOU!
We here at MTL Blog can only travel so far and do so much in one day to chase down that perfect story. We're a busy bunch of writers and sometimes, we might not get it all!
That's why we're so grateful for readers like YOU because you make our jobs so much easier by sending us incredible local stories that matter.
Each week, we get tons of user-submitted tips and even though we don't showcase them all — we appreciate every single one.
These submissions provide a snapshot of life in Montreal and we feel privileged to be able to share these precious stories and images with the world.
From the hilarious to the heartbreaking, here are the best photos, videos, and stories submitted or shared with MTL Blog this week.
Reader Tran Jbui sent us a video of Canada's Prime Minister aimlessly wandering the streets of Villeray! We don't know why this video is so entertaining, but it is.

An anonymous reader sent us a video of an out-of-control car fire that happened in the Gay Village last weekend.
No one was injured in the blaze. Police don't suspect criminal activity.

Maybe I'll be taking a Lime scooter to get around from now on...
Ah, Montreal...you never fail to amaze me.
Thanks for all your amazing answers, folks!

See what I mean? Sometimes, even our most careful writers miss an amazing new restaurant opening.
