Everyone loves churros — what could be bad about fried choux pastry dough covered in cinnamon sugar and sometimes stuffed with caramel or chocolate? If you're getting hungry just thinking about the popular Latin American treat, then mark your calendar because you now officially have plans at Churros Montreal on Saturday.
To celebrate its 22nd anniversary of operation, Churros Montreal will be selling churros for $1 on June 19.
If you're looking to get one of the few tickets that are left for the Montreal Canadiens game on Saturday, May 29, you better hope you've saved some of your CERB money. Ticket prices on the team's official resale site, Ticketmaster, are definitely not cheap.
With prices ranging from, at the time of writing, $1,448 to $8,068, many are wondering why ticket prices are so incredibly high.
Another 586 products will remain at the same price.
Several factors are responsible for the price increases including higher duties on alcohol and higher freight charges on maritime transport, the company said.
"We’re committed to offering fair and competitive prices to our customers," said Catherine Dagenais, President and Chief Executive Officer of the SAQ.
"Our Category Management teams [...] [are] in touch with producers, suppliers and agents both here and abroad and they drive a hard bargain so we can offer our customers prices that are among the lowest in Canada, year in, year out."
The study looked at the difference in price between tap water and bottled water as well as the variations in water scarcity in each region. Compared to other Canadian cities, Vancouver has the most expensive overall water prices and Toronto has the least expensive overall prices.
The study found that Montreal has an abundance of water, with "water stress" under 10%. The median monthly cost of tap water is €0.99 Euros (~$1.46 CAD).
For affordable bottled water, the study found that the median price in Montreal was €0.38 Euros (~$0.55 CAD). Branded water from Evian and Nestle was slightly more expensive in Montreal, at €1.27 Euros (~$1.86 CAD) and €1.11 Euros (~$1.63 CAD) respectively.
In Toronto, for example, the monthly cost of tap water is much higher than Montreal at €3.78 Euros (~$5.56 CAD) but the median price of brand-name bottled water is much lower, at €0.93 Euros (~$1.36 CAD) for Evian.
