We hope that after [January] 11, we will be able to open them.
Premier François Legault
Quebec's financial assistance program for businesses in red zones has also been extended until January 11, Legault said.
Restaurant dining rooms, bars, gyms, theatres, and museums are among the businesses that will remain closed.
The premier said he hopes to be able to open these businesses after January 11, but made clear that that depends on the number of cases decreasing before then.
"When we look at the situation throughout the world," he said, "we can say two things. One, there are places that are really worrying. Two, these measures — [for] restaurants, gyms, theatres — these are measures that are in place [...] all over the world."
At a press conference on Thursday, Premier François Legault, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and several other government representatives announced huge new investments into Canada's aerospace industry. These investments are set to create "more than 1,000" high-paying jobs in Quebec and the rest of Canada.
"The projects announced today are tangible platforms for creating exciting jobs," Aéro Montréal explained in a press release.
While his wife, Julie Petry, had posted that the bloodshot eyes were due to an "upper-body injury," she didn't tell curious Habs fans much more — other than saying it wasn't allergies, wasn't because he wasn't tired and wasn't the result of "a couple nights in Vegas."
He called it a "freak accident" that occurred when he put his hand on the arena's glass barrier to brace himself after skating over holes on the ice. He said his pinky finger went into the glass and his momentum pushed the rest of his body forward, breaking his finger.
"The eyes were all because when they were setting my finger back into place to put the cast on, I basically passed out and popped all the blood vessels in my eyes," Petry said.
By Friday's press conference, Petry's eyes were clear, appearing to have healed. But the haunting memory will live on — at least until the Canadiens' official store runs out of Petry "Red Eye" T-shirts.
