It seems as though everyone is finding creative ways of staying busy, and many of them include using social media platforms to do so. From Instagram lives and at-home workouts to TikToks and binge-watching television, we have all been doing what we can to stay safe and sane during this isolation period — including Montreal Mayor Valérie Plante.
Many Montreal influencers have been doing their part in keeping us entertained, including Vanessa Grimaldi, who became known around the city after winning The Bachelor a few years ago.
She has been hosting live dance parties, taking us on journeys to bring onions to her grandparents, but her latest live video is what really blew me away.
Grimaldi hosted an Instagram live with Mayor Plante on April 7 and it was by far one of the best things I have seen in a while.
Although Grimaldi's Bachelor engagement didn't work out, she now uses her fame for good, including reaching many Montreal locals about things she's passionate about.
Vanessa still lives in Montreal, and her connection and love for our awesome city are undeniable.
For those of you who missed the Instagram live, she and the mayor discussed a slew of topics.
Not only did the pair discuss these important issues that relate to our city, but Grimaldi even got the Mayor of Montreal to do a TikTok with her, which you can watch above.
Let's say that they... can really dance!
Grimaldi told her Instagram followers that Plante's "warm energy was what we all needed last night."
During the live video, the Mayor of Montreal discussed BIXI bikes, which will be available again as of April 15. According to Grimadi's post, "the bikes will be cleaned every day."
