Montreal's Entire STM Blue Metro Line Has Been Shut Down, Here's Why
According to the STM service updates website, service on the Blue line will be down until 8:15 AM, which is when the service is "expected" to resume.
A person who has been hurt or is sick is the apparent cause, but there are few other details.
As of now, the entirety of the Blue Line is down, from Snowdown to Saint Michel.

The STM has been super on point as of late. In fact, before today they had gone a record number of days without a shutdown!
And even today, they expected service would be back by 8:15, and it totally was. I don't know what they're doing differently lately but clearly, it's working and there are no complaints from us!
