The Interzip Rogers experience starts at its 120-foot launch tower located on the site of the Zibi, a waterfront development that spans both Gatineau and Ottawa, along the two sides of the Portage Bridge.
The course is over 1,400 feet long, offering "360-degree" views of Ottawa's Parliament Buildings, Chaudière Falls and Old Hull.
Zipliners can travel at speeds of up to 40 kilometres per hour, and the company says the experience takes between 45 and 90 minutes.
The online book system shows very few spots available on July 23, but there are plenty of openings through the rest of the summer up until October 1.
The Interzip also offers night hours so zipliners can fly above the water under the moonlight.
Price: $39.99 for adults, $29.99 for children aged 14 years old and under
When: Open every day, but hours vary based on weather conditions and days
Address: 40, rue Jos-Montferrand, Gatineau (Zibi), QC
Why You Need To Go: Experience the world's first-ever interprovincial zipline in the morning or under the stars.
Montreal Mayor Valérie Plante, accompanied by the mayors of Quebec's other four major cities, put out a statement on Tuesday imploring the Federal government to make a "firm commitment" to fight gun violence and gun trafficking.
"What we want is a clear plan [...] either we head towards an American-style society where the use of guns becomes banal and tragedies happen daily or the federal [government] takes responsibility" and acts on the issue, Plante said at a press conference.
"Cities are taking responsibility and continuing to do everything in their power to prevent violence, fight organized crime and keep our communities safe," the mayors said in a joint statement shared with MTL Blog.
"But we cannot do it all alone. We need a concerted, comprehensive, pan-Canadian effort."
The mayors cited the need to give more resources and funding to policing efforts like the border services or local law enforcement to fight against a surge of gun violence and gun trafficking.
Anyone who knows French would laugh out loud at this because what Ottawa Public Health was suggesting with this unfortunate grammatical gaffe was that they are "working hard so we can touch each other, eat on a terrance," not a terrasse, "and meet again." The tweet was deleted and replaced by a more G-rated suggestion of "hugging each other."
Now, that's either a quite steamy proposition from Ottawa Public Health or it's that we just all have dirty minds in Quebec and appreciate a silly error when we see one.
Either way, I think the lesson here is that any translation software might give you the right words, but context is key!
What does Ottawa Public Health have to say about the tweet?
In a statement shared with MTL Blog, Ottawa Public Health said that its "social media team strives to provide clear, current and trustworthy information in an engaging way across our communication channels."
The agency said that it uses humour to boost its messages on social media.
As for the naughty tweet in French, public health said it was simply a matter of "human error."
"Ottawa Public Health does not rely on automatic translators, and does not exclusively translate public health messaging from English to French, but rather takes great effort in adapting the content, messaging and cultural references to our francophone audiences."
"In this particular instance, a francophone member of our team wrote the tweet while being quite tired during a particularly hectic week and made a wording error that was not caught prior to being published."
