Following the example of the Champlain Bridge, the Cartier Bridge has lit up with the colours of the rainbow.\nAn accelerated gif of the display shows that the bridge lights are actually changing colour over time.\nVisit MTLBlog for more headlines.\nQuebec residents are displaying rainbows in their windows as a way to add some colour to their neighbourhoods and keep their communities together during these dark times. Recently, however, the trend reached a new scale. Even the Champlain Bridge is displaying rainbow lights to send a message of hope to the city it serves. And now its sister, the Cartier Bridge has followed with its own rainbow light display.\nThe Jacques Cartier Bridge, which connects Montreal and the South Shore by way of Île Sainte-Hélène, "is an emblem of the Greater Montreal area because of its history and architecture," its website states.\nThe "iconic feature of Montreal’s urban landscape" and the "[subtly] flickering" lights that adorn it are supposed to represent the "vitality of Montrealers."\nThe lights usually only change colour every month, but the increasingly popular rainbow trend apparently had residents clamouring for the Cartier Bridge to take part.\n"Many of you asked for it," Mayor Plante wrote on Twitter alongside an accelerated gif of the rainbow display, which shows the lights change colour over time\nShe called the colours a demonstration of the "hope, resilience, and solidarity of Montrealers."\nLa distanciation sociale indispensable nous fait réaliser à quel point ça nous manque d’être rassemblés dans la vie !
