The first of many AZUR prototypes, the STM's new métro car model, have arrived in Montreal. The STM couldn't hold back their excitement and let the city know through the tweets and photos below.
Montreal's new metro cars aren't planned to hit the tracks until fall, so don't get too excited to ride the AZUR cars just yet. The AZUR train's early arrival is to allow time to test the brand new trains on the much older Montreal underground network.
Some scares made it seem like the new cars were simply too big for the STM's train tracks, largely in part to a JdeM article, but a representative from the STM made us aware the cars simply need to be slightly modified and the fall 2014-timeline is still intact.
That's exactly what Quebecois cyclist Hugo Houle did. In a genius move, Houle packed his favourite Quebecois maple syrup for the Olympics and we honestly love his decision.
In a story posted on Houle's Instagram page, you can see an iconic can of pure maple syrup made in Quebec that he says will be shared with his teammates, and it's probably going to be a hit at the breakfast table.
Considering the contents of the Olympic breakfast spread, the athletes are going to need a whole lot of maple syrup to make Tokyo feel like home for the next weeks.
This October, a festival with life-sized animatronic dinosaurs is coming to the Montreal area — and if you've always wanted to feel like you were in Jurassic Park then this is your chance.
Jurassic Fest Montreal promises to bring 19 "moving, breathing, blinking and roaring" creatures to Quartier DIX30 in Brossard from October 22 to 30, taking us back in time to the era when dinosaurs roamed the Earth.
