"For the postseason, we're gonna add a sign in the right-field foul territory with a very simple Tampa Bay-Montreal graphic," Silverman said.
"With the eyes of baseball on us this October, we want that visible symbol of our plan and our excitement for it."
Plans for a sister-city project with the Tampa Bay Rays have been in the works for quite some time. In 2019, the MLB reportedly granted permission to the Rays to possibly play some of their games in Montreal.
The sister-city plan will allow the team to play some games in Montreal while exploring the possibility of a new stadium, ESPN reported.
"We are making progress both here and in Montreal," Silverman added.
"I'm very encouraged by the conversations we're having. It's about a connection with Montreal. Montreal, to us, is the best city to partner with."
Federal government services like Service Canada and federally regulated businesses like post offices and banks will be observing the holiday, which means they will be closed. Revenu Québec notes that it is "is extending deadlines that would normally fall on September 30 to the next business day" as a result.
Provincially regulated government buildings and services will be open and operating, as will Quebec grocery stores, pharmacies, restaurants, retail stores, museums, sporting events, family activities and the like.
However, individual institutions or businesses may choose to observe the holiday. You can check operating hours or call ahead if you're unsure.
In June, Quebec Premier François Legault said he was "not in favour" of instituting a statutory holiday dedicated to Indigenous people, but committed to "[coordinate] with the federal government to do the necessary research into the residential schools that are here in Quebec."
Event spaces and other venues, meanwhile, will get to see their attendance multiply.
Events with designated seating (which the government says includes "amateur sports and leisure events with bleachers or stands, [...] assemblies, meetings, conventions or ceremonies, including in places of worship") during which attendees remain seated can now accommodate a maximum of 500 people if they're outside and 250 people if they're inside.
In stadiums and on festival grounds, 15,000 people can attend outdoor events.
Inside, these settings can welcome as many as 7,500 people split up into sections of 500.
The government has made clear that social distancing is still required, as is mask-wearing in interior settings.
"With opening day today, excited to announce we’re bringing the Expos back to the MLB in 2022. Excited to be the first player/coach/owner in MLB history," reads his tweet.
"What!!!!!is this real life??? Oh man I'm a huge pats fan and thank you for the past 20 years and I was forced to become a Jays fan after the expos left...this is fkn awesome LFG!!!!" one person responded on Twitter.
What makes the joke less mean is that Brady almost pursued a career in baseball and was selected by the Expos in the 18th round of the 1995 MLB draft.
