That's right. It's honestly not like Canada has some of the most beautiful natural views in the world, awesome things to be incredibly proud of, fantastic world rankings, or an incredibly diverse country and population - we're just not like that. And if you're thinking of visiting anyway, well, I've got a few more reasons why you absolutely won't have the time of your life here.
Montreal Pride organizers are busy preparing for the first Edition of Canada Pride. Unlike Montréal annual Pride’s festival, which only lasts seven days, the Canada Pride Montréal 2017 takes place over ten days, including two full weekends of activities.
And now to gear up for Canada Pride, a crosswalk in the village has been replaced with a giant rainbow!
Plus it leads up to the bank which is technically a pot of gold!
The rainbow is located on the corner of St. Catherine and St. Hubert Street.
Speaking as a gay man, Montreal is pretty much the mecca for all-things queer in Canada. Montreal's LGBTQ+ scene is just a little more alive (and far more unique) than other cities, so it only makes sense that Montreal is going to play host to the nation's first-ever "Canada Pride."
To coincide with Montreal's 375th birthday celebrations, the LGBTQ+ festival that's going to take over the city in summer 2017 will last a full ten days.
Concerts, sporting events, conferences on LGBTQ+ rights, and a gigantic Pride Parade are already on the festival's set-list, reports the Montreal Gazette. More is definitely to come.
Montreal will only host Canada Pride for its inaugural year. A new city will be chosen to host the festival four years later, when Canada Pride is held again.
Colour us rainbow for already-excited, mostly because we simply know Justin Trudeau is going to be in the parade.
