In April, a man named Manuel Delisle was charged with a road rage after threatening a Family with a chainsaw. He was recorded with a cell phone camera and the video showing part of incident went viral.
For those of you who don't remember, here's a little reminder of what happened on that fateful day.
Delisle was given an absolute discharge after he plead guilty to a charge of assault with a weapon according to CBC, even though everyone knows the only time a chainsaw can be considered a weapon is when it's used against zombies. If you're surprised as to why this 'chainsaw wielding maniac' was released, perhaps its because the video you see is conveniently cropped. What you don't see is the fact that the family was following Delisle for awhile because they were trying to get his license number after he supposedly cut them off.
Once they reached a dead end, Delilse had had enough and pulled out his chainsaw as any calm, collected individual would and started threatening the family. The judged therefore ruled that the family was also to blame and that since no one was injured, the accused would be discharged.
The barbershop posted on Instagram that they want to identify the couple, the stars of a viral video, to help "end their love story [properly]" by gifting them a one-night hotel stay. But co-owner Mikey Rose told MTL Blog no one has come forward yet.
A Savvy Barbershop employee told MTL Blog that the shop's alarm went off at 6 a.m. on July 19 when the shop is usually closed.
He said the security camera sent the barbershop's owners a notification about a break-in while police contacted them. When they arrived on the scene and reviewed the security footage, they saw what had really happened.
"We were like, 'Oh my God, that's what happened," he said.
"There was nothing stolen or taken, and then we saw them just run away."
Barbershop offers to treat the couple to a hotel stay
Rose told MTL Blog that he offered to treat the couple to a one-night hotel stay "to make sure everyone is fine" but neither of the pair has reached out to him since the incident.
"We've kind of made our peace with it," Rose said.
"I think it's kind of cool to never know who they are, in a way [...] they stay this mystery couple that are just part of the history of our shop."
However, Rose said that if the couple comes forward, the offer for a one-night hotel stay still stands.
"Of course, hands down," he said. "We're men of our word," he laughed, calling the occurrence a "funny accident."
"We laughed it off, it was hilarious. At first, we think we got robbed, and then we find out it was a couple that crashed through the window. It was a relief," he said. "We laughed, the cops laughed, our wives laughed, and now everybody's laughing."
Ca Lem's owner, Stephanie Le, told MTL Blog that clients just need to download the TikTok app and show their account to the cashier in order to receive free pancake cereal sundaes — which are, of course, topped with maple syrup.
"We encourage users to take video and pictures of their visit to Ca Lem and post on Instagram, Facebook & TikTok platforms," she said.
There are limited quantities each day but the offer is valid at two of Ca Lem's locations — in NDG and the Plateau — so you can double your chances of getting a free sundae.

You can reserve seats on Ticketmaster 24 hours ahead of the game, with a maximum of four tickets per person. Tickets are only available digitally and printed tickets won't be accepted, so you'll have to show your ticket on your phone.
The whole site accommodates people with restricted mobility, but only Zone C has accessible bathrooms, reserved parking and private access from Rue Saint-Catherine O.
You won't be able to join people in other zones and you must remain in your ticketed zone at all times, so make sure you book the same zone as your friends.
Here's how you can use public transportation to reach your zone:
Zone A can be reached via Place des Arts metro station, at the de Bleury exit. Once outside, go south on Rue de Bleury until you reach Rue Sainte-Catherine O.

Zone C can also be accessed via the Saint-Laurent metro station. Once outside, go west on Boul. de Maisonneuve until Rue Saint-Urbain, then go south to 1444, rue Saint-Urbain.
The surrounding streets will be closed to traffic, save for Rue Saint-Urbain, which grants entry to the Complexe Desjardins, Place des Arts and Indigo parking lots.
Four screens will broadcast the match. The screening site opens at 5 p.m. and the hockey game starts at 8 p.m.
