As if that wasn't enough, we're now also known for that pretty funny pile-up involving cars, two buses, and a cop car.
At least it was funny, until the whole world started talking about it. Accidents happen, sure, and we seem to have at least a semi-legit reason why that steep hill wasn't salted, but come on. We're Montreal. We're better than this.
Montreal is an amazing place; I love it. The city is beautiful, we host tons of incredibly fun events all the time, there are amazing places to eat and drink at, Montrealers are a great group of people... the list goes on.
But I just wish the good was being put at the forefront right now; because everyone else is laughing at the things we used to laugh at together, and when the whole world is laughing at your inside jokes, they stop being funny.
Walk Walk Danceis a "brand new project imagined for the cities of the world hoping to quickly revive public spaces after the vacuum created by the pandemic," according to a press release. You can walk, jump, roll, or dance on carpet to trigger beautiful music.
"The pandemic and lockdown isolated people inside their homes, cities and public spaces were deserted, sad and lifeless. We wanted to create an opportunity to meet each other and reclaim our cities, no matter where we live, " said Mouna Andraos, co-founder of Daily tous les jours.
Walk Walk Dance premiered in Toronto in June 2021.
"The purpose of this project is to surprise people by creating spontaneous moments of joy, safely, " added Melissa Mongiat, co-founder of Daily tous les jours.
The installation will be in Quartier des Spectacles until September 6, 2021.

This spot is mostly known for its incredibly delicious all-natural unicorn lemonades and super cool terrarium-esque desserts... but tbh, you need to get yourself there and try every. Single. Thing.
The food here is fresh and delicious. I tried their chicken kimchi bao bun, and let me tell you, it was a life-changing experience. The bao bun was soft and steamed to perfection; the chicken was juicy and moist; the kimchi worked perfectly with all the accoutrements in the bun.
Appropriately namedHarry Potter And The Chamber Of Secrets In Concert, this event will feature a showing of the second Harry Potter film... while a live orchestra plays along to the score. There will be French subtitles for the film.
Honestly, if that doesn't sound magical, I don't know what does.
