You've definitely noticed that buses have been showing up late, the metros are constantly breaking down, schedules aren't very accurate, and the only way to guarantee you'll catch your bus is to follow it live on the bus tracking map.
Why is this happening now?
Buses regularly have to be taken off the reads formaintenance. But since the maintenance workers were on strike, those buses were not put back on the roads as quickly as they normally would.
This resulted in a smaller fleet of buses to fulfill the same demand, which means that each bus reached their 20,000-km maintenance mark sooner.
So basically every week there are fewer and fewer buses on the roads and the problem keeps getting worse.
While there are a million and one spots to enjoy a 5 à 7 in the city, not everywhere does happy hour quite like this Montreal restaurant in the Village.
Resto Keela serves $6 drinks from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m., including house draft beer, house red or white wine, and speed rail mixed drinks, which is a choice of vodka, rye, rum, or gin — a pretty hard drink deal to beat.
As for food, you can go every week and try a different $6 dish at happy hour. "The $6 bites change from week to week but we always offer 3-5 options," owners Kristin Murphy and Johnny Hamilton told MTL Blog.
I went on September 10 and got to try green beans with a cashew romesco sauce and feta crumble, chorizo sausage, chicken Kaarage with kimchi cucumbers, and organic cherry tomato salad with blue cheese. And I kid you not when I say these dishes all take your taste buds on a culinary trip to heaven.
Keela's full menu is also filled with tons of unique dishes for you to try. The celery root carpaccio is hands down my favourite.
Every Friday night, you can hear the sweet voice of Bud Rice sing live at the restaurant.
