City to distribute masks

The Journal says the city will distribute masks but not how or where.

Mayor Plante has been hinting she has plans to make summer fun despite the loss of festivals. To be honest, I think to many Montrealers the festivals are mostly tourist bait, and since there won’t be tourism this summer the city will save money on the intensive policing and cleaning up of the Quartier des spectacles, downtown and the islands that must have to be done normally.

One of Plante’s intentions is to open community gardens with certain safeguards in place. Since most planting isn’t done till May, the season should be pretty much as usual for gardeners.

For myself, I’ll miss the street fairs, which I always used to enjoy, but which I doubt can take place this year.
