It'll be just another Monday for most Montrealers.
Justin Trudeau may have announced a federal holiday on the date of Queen Elizabeth II's funeral, but François Legault is not interested. In a video taken by Journal de Quebec journalist Marc-André Gagnon, the premier stated that the funeral "will be a day of commemoration, but there won't be a holiday."

It seems that only federal workers will get a day off in honour of the queen's death. In Trudeau's public statement on Tuesday, he clarified that there were still ongoing conversations to determine how each province would commemorate the late queen.
