It was quite a week, eh Montreal?

Our weather was quite nice despite some rainy days, there was a shark in the Saint Lawrence Gulf, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau gave us $50 million for a park, the STM made some changes, Papa John's opened its first location in the area for a very long time, we found out why your flight to Vancouver is so expensive, and a beloved La Ronde roller coaster is shutting down soon

There was way more that happened in the news this week! So, if you missed anything, check out our Facebook, Instagram, or Twitter pages.

Widely-circulated news is fun and all, but here at MTL Blog, we love getting submissions and story tips from you — the reader! We received some pretty fantastic local stories this week. Some funny and some were simply classic Montreal but all were from you!

Montreal construction workers got creative with traffic line painting

Montreal is known as an artistic place as I'm sure you've all seen many "found art" vernissages (here's looking at you Concordia Fine Arts majors). But I mean, this one takes the cake.

This is truly a prize-winning work of art that needs to be hung in the MBAM. Classic Montreal!

A parking ticket was issued to a parked Montreal municipal car and nothing makes sense anymore

Is this the nexus of the universe? One reader spotted this Ville de Montréal municipal car with a parking ticket on the window. Hmm. Ironic.

Does anyone know this hairdresser? 

We received messages from a few women asking us to find this apparently amazing hairdresser who used to work in Granby. Apparently, he works in Verdun now:

"Hi there, I am looking for a hairstylist by the name of Jean-Francois who worked at Smart Style on Granby street for over 4 years. He left his stylist job there and is now working in a hair salon somewhere in Verdun. He was my stylist for years and won't trust anyone else with my hair. Jean-Francois in quite tall, reddish hair, in his early 30's. Maybe someone can help me! Thank you".

Send us a DM if you think you know "Jean-Francois"!

And finally...


Winner of the most Montreal picture of the week is...

Pure comedy.

Have a great weekend, Montreal!
