Walmart is known for selling pretty much anything you can think of. I mean you can go there to get nail polish, or a new tire for your car. But as it turns out, this Montreal Walmart is trying to expand their market even further and is now selling Betta fish in cups. Pet stores are already bad enough, we really don't need Walmart trying to get into that game too.
The person who spotted these fish said that they asked an employee about them, who told her they had been delivered by mail, placed on a shelf, and she was instructed not to feed them. And despite the fact that most people will say "Well Bettas can survive for a long time in those cups," sure, they can survive, but the actual minimum recommendation for a tank size for a Betta is one gallon, and they should be fed every day.
And yes, I know that Walmart also sells things like Lobsters that live in kind of crappy tanks, but those lobsters are literally there for the purpose of being eaten. These fish are supposed to be pets. Maybe Walmart should stick to selling its usual items because the word that comes to mind when I see this is "unnecessary."
Expedia also shared data on Canadians' interest in visiting Quebec destinations. After Quebec City and Mont-Tremblant, Canadians seem to want to travel to La Malbaie, Tadoussac, Montreal and Gaspésie — in that order.
The results were based on searches for trips that would take place between July 7 and September 30.
At a press conference on Thursday, Premier François Legault, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and several other government representatives announced huge new investments into Canada's aerospace industry. These investments are set to create "more than 1,000" high-paying jobs in Quebec and the rest of Canada.
"The projects announced today are tangible platforms for creating exciting jobs," Aéro Montréal explained in a press release.
Ca Lem's owner, Stephanie Le, told MTL Blog that clients just need to download the TikTok app and show their account to the cashier in order to receive free pancake cereal sundaes — which are, of course, topped with maple syrup.

Founder Corinne Asseraf "imagined the Gallery 203 as a place of discovery, of meeting and exchange between artists and art enthusiasts" and you can feel exactly that the second you walk through the doors.
The mastermind behind all of this, Asseraf, has such a warming, kind presence, which is reason enough to take a visit to Galerie 203 whenever you're strolling through Old Montreal. She let MTL Blog know that anyone and everyone is welcome in her gallery.
