Montreal Terrasses Are Finally Going To Reopen

Following an outcry from restaurants and bars, Premier François Legault finally announced that Montreal terrasses will reopen. They'll open on May 28 for restaurants and June 11 for bars.

The news came with the announcement of Quebec's three-stage reopening plan, which is slated to be completed by the end of June.

But Legault said mask-wearing and other public health measures will remain in place until the end of August when the province expects to vaccinate (with two doses) 75% of Quebecers 12 and older.

Some restaurant owners have voiced disappointment that the government isn't going further.

In a joint statement, the Corporation des Propriétaires de Bars, Brasseries et Tavernes du Québec and the Union des Tenanciers de Bars du Québec called the measure discriminatory for establishments that don't have terrasses.

The statement also said restaurants and bars would still "not be able to make a profit since they will not be able to operate their business on a continuous basis due to the obvious impossibility of serving customers on rainy, windy or cold days, etc."
