For some reason, I'm there super often... Mainly because, like, 80% of my fam lives there.

But also to go to Fairview, which just might be my alltime favourite mall. (Other than Carrefour Laval, but whatever, they're equally awesome in my book).

And very soon, the West Island is about to unveil yet another awesome shopping spot.

Called Les Avenues Vaudreuil, this ginormous outdoor shopping mall will be located in Vaudreuil-Dorion, near Highway 40, Highway 30, and Highway 20.

As you might have guessed, it's going to be huge. 1.4 million square feet kind of huge.

It'll feature retailers like Quebec's very first Forever 21 RED, Winners, DavidsTEA, and basically all the fantastic stores and restaurants you can expect a project like this to have.

To make things even cooler, Les Avenues Vaudreuil will be divided into four parts: Mode, Marche, Loisirs, and Avenir, each with their own themes.

When all is said and done, the mall will have over 220 stores, restaurants, and other spots available for you guys to enjoy. Which means it'll be one of the biggest projects in the area.

No concrete dates are set yet, but the project is aiming to be finished by summer 2018.

The SPCA West Says It Was 'Devastated' By A Flood & Needs Help

The animals were transferred to another shelter where they can be adopted.

A no-kill animal shelter in Vaudreuil-Dorion, SPCA West, says it needs help recovering from a "disaster" after a flood caused major damage to more than 70% of its walls and floors.

"Last thing we expected when coming to work yesterday morning, is to open the doors to 2 inches of water running through and flooding the SPCA. A water pipe burst over night, and [a] huge amount of water made its way through the entire shelter," SPCA West wrote in an email dated August 13.
