This afternoon, Montreal Mayor, Valérie Plante, advised Montrealers to postpone their trick or treating to Friday, due to weather conditions.
Today, Environment Canada issued the following warning for Montreal: ” Total rainfall amounts of 40 to 70 millimetres are expected … to begin this evening and will last until Saturday morning … winds of up to 80 kilometres per hour are possible Thursday night and Friday morning.”
Pierrefonds-Roxboro and L’Île-Bizard-Sainte-Genevière, which are also part of the city of Montreal, have decided to postpone Halloween until Friday, along with other nearby municipalities such as Longueuil, Saint-Lambert and Sainte-Julie.
Dorval has informed us that they are analyzing the situation and will post their decision on their Facebook page tomorrow, while Sainte-Anne-de-Bellevue posted that all municipal activities will be held on Halloween Day, except for the Haunted Street (organized by residents, on St-Hyacinthe Street) is postponed to Saturday, from 4 pm to 8 pm.
We’re still waiting for updates from other West Island municipalities and will keep you posted as information becomes available.
