At a press conference on Thursday, Premier François Legault, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and several other government representatives announced huge new investments into Canada's aerospace industry. These investments are set to create "more than 1,000" high-paying jobs in Quebec and the rest of Canada.
"The projects announced today are tangible platforms for creating exciting jobs," Aéro Montréal explained in a press release.
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.

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!

According to new data published by the Institut de la statistique du Québec, Quebec recorded a huge decline in marriages in 2020. It was in fact the lowest recorded number of marriages in over 100 years.
Quebecers celebrated around 11,300 marriages in 2020, a number that's "down by half (-49%) compared to 2019, an unprecedented drop in Quebec," the Institut wrote in a press release.
This is the fewest marriages in the province since 1903, according to the data.
The decline is attributed to the COVID-19 pandemic and government restrictions.
The decline was "particularly significant" in summer 2020, with a drop of "around 70% compared to the average for 2015 to 2019."
According to the figures, "the decrease was greater among couples made up of two spouses born in Canada (-60%), while it appears less marked among couples in which both spouses were born abroad (-25%) or those in which one of the spouses was born abroad (-32%)."
During the first months of 2021, the Institute reports that the number of marriages in Quebec remains "below average."
