We all know by now that UberEats in Montreal has our back whenever we're feeling too lazy to make our own meal or to go get our own groceries.
The app just even got better for anyone with no desire to leave their house — Montrealers can now order from stores in the city on UberEats too. So you can get all your must-haves brought to your doorstep faster than even Amazon can deliver.
Uber media representative Jonathan Hamel confirmed the full list of retail options available in Montreal throughout the Uber Eats app as follows:
Chora Design Floral
Epicerie du Bazaar
Marché Aux Fleurs MTL
Pellatt Cornucopia Gifts
Pépinière Notre Dame
As you can see, there's a variety of flower shops on the list, which can save you if ever you don't have time to go get someone a gift before an event because you can have a bouquet of flowers delivered to you while you're getting ready for it!
Or, if you're in desperate need of some face wash before starting your day, you can also have that brought to your doorstep.
Looking for a new book to cozy up in bed with on a cold day? You've got Indigo as a delivery option for that.
And of course, you can have a much-needed snack brought to you as well. Why do we even bother leaving our homes at this point, eh?
Note that depending on where you are in Montreal, all the retail stores listed above may not have options for delivery or pickup.
The government is in the process of filling a Service Canada job bank and it's advertising salaries of between $61,152 and $65,887.
On an online recruitment page, the Employment and Social Development Canada (ESDC) office says it needs to fill 45 benefits officer and program officer positions in Quebec and encourages qualified individuals to apply.
The only education requirement is a high school diploma.
While benefits officers review and process employment insurance applications, the government describes a wide range of duties for program officers, including coordination with local stakeholders regarding services from the ESDC.
Service Canada says it has EI processing centres and "program branches" in Montreal, Laval, Boucherville, Drummondville, Thetford Mines, Shawinigan, Quebec City and Saguenay, but that it may assign alternative workplaces to applicants who don't live in these areas.
In addition to a high school diploma, Service Canada is looking for applicants who have experience totalling six months "in delivering services or programs to the general public" or "interpreting and applying legislation or policies."
The language requirement is either French-only or French and English, depending on the position, according to the recruitment page.
Complete details about the positions available and the application process are online.
Tennis Canada asked Fernandez what motivates her and her answers shed light on the source of her work ethic and character.
In one interview, Fernandez says, "Through the years, my dad and my mom [...] taught me to work hard and to fight for what you want. Nothing will come easy. Same thing with life. I've seen them going through hardship and I like to take that as motivation for a tennis match."
What motivates @leylahfernandez? The success of her compatriots, of course.
Love this answer from the #USOpen fina… https://t.co/PnUouSmii1
In another interview, Fernandez names fellow Canadian tennis players as sources of inspiration.
"Felix [Auger Aliassime], Denis [Shapovalov], Bianca [Andreescu], Milos [Raonic] — everybody doing great things on the tour. It's another great motivation. They're progressing, they're also winning, they're also attacking so watching them succeed [...] give[s] me motivation during practices and matches to be the best I can," she says.
Montreal Mayor Valérie Plante, accompanied by the mayors of Quebec's other four major cities, put out a statement on Tuesday imploring the Federal government to make a "firm commitment" to fight gun violence and gun trafficking.
"What we want is a clear plan [...] either we head towards an American-style society where the use of guns becomes banal and tragedies happen daily or the federal [government] takes responsibility" and acts on the issue, Plante said at a press conference.
"Cities are taking responsibility and continuing to do everything in their power to prevent violence, fight organized crime and keep our communities safe," the mayors said in a joint statement shared with MTL Blog.
"But we cannot do it all alone. We need a concerted, comprehensive, pan-Canadian effort."
The mayors cited the need to give more resources and funding to policing efforts like the border services or local law enforcement to fight against a surge of gun violence and gun trafficking.
