The Best Photos, Videos, & Stories Shared By Montrealers This Week
It's been a long week so take advantage of Labour Day, folks!

But don't worry - you'll soon be mad at us for posting about the snow and ice and sleet every morning. We won't disappoint you, Montreal!
Enough winter talk, though! We're on the eve of the last long weekend of summer and everyone is preparing for that last trip to the chalet.

Pride claimed that they were notified of the threats from police authorities.
We discovered that. So, what's really going on?
We'll update this story as we get more details.
Some commuters witnessed a dramatic event a few days ago after a truck caught fire and billowed huge clouds of black smoke over the Decarie Expressway.
Speaking of things on fire...
