As much as stereotypes are generalizations, we all know that if you say you live in a certain neighbourhood of Montreal (or a surrounding area), you're going to be associated with a particular vibe because certain types of people seem to be clustered in the same places.
In a new — and hilariously accurate — TikTok video, Fred Duke captures this perfectly by doing impressions of people from different parts of the Montreal area reacting to ever-changing COVID-19 restrictions.
He covers the Plateau, Saint-Henri, Laval, the West Island, and Outremont and the impressions are focused on the 8 p.m. curfew that Premier François Legault recently reinstated in Montreal.
Watching someone poke fun at Montreal-area stereotypes in such a timely way provides a much-needed laugh. It's funny because it's true.
