Under the proposed concept, the wide but little-used street with a spectacular view of McGill University and Mount Royal will transform into "a large green corridor that will become the distinctive element of [an] imposing new public square," according to a statement from the city.
The Greenhound Canada Foundation, an ecological advocacy group, will be hosting this free-to-attend market at Leaves House Café McGill from 10:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. starting on September 18.
This series of markets is "part of Greenhound Foundation's campaign to support mental wellness and community connectedness through plants and nature," according to a press release shared with MTL Blog.
The funds raised from the market will go towards supporting community projects and the development of a "healing garden" in Montreal.
The market this weekend will host creators such as Les Filles Plantées, Ivkaforest, MTL Creation Boutique, MTLA Studio, Soft Earth Forest Therapy, and desputeaux+aubin (creators of Caillou). There will be something for everyone!
This video shows Montreal street names being changed to New York ones. MTL Blog reporter Alex Melki was able to have an individual confirm that it was allegedly part of the filming for Transformers: Rise Of The Beasts.
And from what the following photos show, it's looking like there are all kinds of different cars in whichever film is being shot at the moment, which is very on-brand for a Transformers movie.

Dorchester Square is seemingly one of the main locations for this current movie shoot.

We know Transformers: Rise Of The Beasts is for sure being filmed in Montreal, we simply cannot confirm this movie set is for the film — although it's highly likely to be. And if that's true, then that means Anthony Ramos, one of the main actors in the new movie, could be in Montreal. Keep your eyes peeled!

A McGill spokesperson told MTL Blog, "Given that the recent incident exacerbated existing damage to the sculpture, it has been removed for repair and restoration. Whether, following this work, the sculpture will return to its current site is not yet determined."
We were further told that "as part of its Action Plan to Address Anti-Black Racism, the University is committed to exploring its historic record." This action plan pledged an investment of $15 million over five years to address racism and develop better representation in both the faculty and student community.
An investigation regarding the statue's vandalism is currently ongoing, the results of which will decide whether the statue will be returned to its current site or be relocated elsewhere.
Since July 1, it has been possible for people who have had to recover from unemployment due to the pandemic and for people who have not been studying full time in the last 12 months to register for one of the training programs of the Program for the requalification and the accompaniment in information technology and communications (PRATIC).
Whether it's a college or university program, a certificate, an attestation of college studies (AEC) or a diploma of specialized graduate studies (DESS), among others, there are 142 training programs waiting for future students.
In Montreal alone, nearly sixty college programs and 20 university programs are available, and a total of 15 in the Capitale-Nationale region.
There are, for example, ACSs in programming, multimedia production, mobile application development or graphic design, to name a few.
The complete list of training courses offered by region can be found on the government website.
Thanks to a budget of some $39.6 million, financial assistance of $650 per week will be offered to 2,500 Quebecers for the duration of their full-time training. A $1,950 bursary will be awarded to graduates.
Who is eligible to enroll in PRATIC?
Two criteria will determine if a person is eligible to register for PRATIC. You must be unemployed and not have been a full-time student in the 12 months prior to applying.
The government suggests that you contact the Services Québec office in your area and an agent will determine with the future student if PRATIC corresponds to his/her needs.
