Well we got nervous there for a moment, but the Habs are advancing to the next round. So now all we have to worry about is whether we'll be playing the Lightning or the Redwings in round 2. Thanks to Carey Price, the Canadiens managed to hold onto a 1-0 lead for most of the game which finally ended in a 2-0 empty net victory. Price's teammates showed their love for their goalie by teasing him a little after the game.
They got into the locker-room first and decided that no one should talk to Price and just wait and see what happens. Price was obviously confused for a moment, but he quickly realizes what was going on. No one on the team could contain their enthusiasms for very long, though, but can you blame them? Go Habs Go!
A sit-in protest will be taking place Wednesday, August 4, calling for justice for Jean René Junior Olivier, a Black man killed by police in Quebec on August 1, 2021.
It will take place in Repentigny, where officers shot Olivier after responding to a 9-1-1 call. His mother, Marie-Mireille Bence, said her son was in distress and in need of help. Quebec's Bureau des Enquêtes independantes (BEI) has launched an investigation into the circumstances surrounding Olivier's death.
Bence spoke out against police action in a press conference, explaining she had called the police because believed her son was "in danger." She then went on to express her loss of faith in the police, referring to them as "criminals."
"I called for help and I found my son on the ground," she said.
Information about the upcoming sit-in demanding justice for Olivier was shared on the @defundthespvm Instagram account, with the caption: "Justice for Jean René Junior, a Black man who was killed by police this weekend while he was in need of mental health support. We are absolutely devastated for his family and friends. Lakay Media has organized a sit-in outside city hall in Repentigny to demand justice for Jean-René and am victims of racial profiling."
"Enough is enough."
The sit-in protest is scheduled for 6 p.m.
