I was walking home the other day when I noticed a fire hydrant with a green top. I didn't think much of it at first but as I walked passed it i also noticed some white letters on the side. I went in for a closer look and was pleasantly surprised, some mysterious artist had turned the fire hydrant into a giant bottle of Sriracha sauce.
It's so simple yet so genius. 2 cans of spray paint, a pre-cut stencil and 5 minutes is all you need. If you'd like to see it for yourself, this one stands at the corner of Sainte-Famille and Prince Arthur in the Plateau. At first I thought it was the only one but as I kept walking towards Saint-Laurent I noticed a few more. I'm not quite sure how many of these there are out there but I say, keep 'em coming.
A factory fire in Beauceville, Quebec sent a column of black smoke into the sky Monday morning. The municipality took to social media to ask residents in the area of the fire to close their windows and vents as a result.
Photos shared with Narcity Québec show the size of the smoke cloud and part of the emergency response.
Sûreté du Québec spokesperson Hélène Saint-Pierre told Narcity that the provincial police force received a call about the fire at 7:30 a.m.
"We have eight people who were injured and were transported to hospitals or who went there by their own means," Saint-Pierre said.
Investigators are at the scene to determine the cause of the fire, Narcity reports.
"We know that the building was being renovated, so is there a link to the incident? That's what the investigation will determine, but for now, it's too early to say what the cause is," Saint-Pierre explained.
Founder Corinne Asseraf "imagined the Gallery 203 as a place of discovery, of meeting and exchange between artists and art enthusiasts" and you can feel exactly that the second you walk through the doors.
The mastermind behind all of this, Asseraf, has such a warming, kind presence, which is reason enough to take a visit to Galerie 203 whenever you're strolling through Old Montreal. She let MTL Blog know that anyone and everyone is welcome in her gallery.
When asked what's so special about Billy K's special sauce, Bountis stated: "It's a top-secret sauce! All I can say is that it is mayo-based with some garlic. You'll have to try it out. It's truly delicious and one-of-a-kind, perfect in a burger or to dip your fries."
