The Impact lose on the road to LAFC 4-2, will be back in Montreal this Wednesday to take on Real Salt Lake.
Two people are in critical condition after a small ultralight plane crashed Friday in St-Cuthbert, about 75 kilometres northeast of Montreal.
Drake had the CN Tower. France’s PNL had the Eiffel Tower. For Montreal’s Loud, when it came time to perch himself high above the mortals for a showboating flex to galvanize his city in the way only a blustery rapper can, there was only one obvious choice: to ride around the Bell Centre ice on a Zamboni for the Fallait y aller/Salles Combles video. What better way for Quebec’s biggest hip-hop star to announce with gusto a new album, Tout ça pour ça, that intends to take Loud into a stratosphere of popularity in this province never before reached by a rapper. “I think it’s bigger than Olympic Stadium,” the 31-year-old said, omitting the inherent danger of perching oneself atop the Big O’s ragged roof. “For Montrealers, hockey’s bigger than any landmark. It felt special doing it.”
What will humanity make of a Canadiens hockey puck in 125 years, or an old bridge token? Ottawa has just revealed they’re hiding a time capsule in our federally-funded new Champlain Bridge — containing 22 Montreal objects meant to be found only when the bridge is demolished. These include everything from a Bixi key to a bridge token, maple syrup, squash and green beans — but shockingly no bagel and cream cheese. The bridge should last 125 years, which means the time capsule won’t be opened till the year 2144, so even my young readers of 14 will miss the ceremony — unless you get robo-part enhancements and live till 139.
Steer clear of these road closures if you want to have a relaxing weekend.
