No ‘normal’ before September

Dr Mylène Drouin says there’s not going to be a return to normal in Montreal before September, ruling out crowded festivals this summer.

A headline in the Journal saying that Montreal is at risk of becoming ordinary caught my eye. But then I thought, hmm, this is the Journal. Can I hazard a bet on what “ordinary” means? Yes. Ordinary means some people speaking English. By that argument, if language makes a place interesting, we should all be speaking Mohawk or Anishinaabe.
