Canadian Destinations Where You Can Find Summer Weather In Fall

Canada has become famous for its cold weather. Contrary to what many foreigners believe, the Great White North isn't bitterly cold all of the time. In fact, hot and sunny summers often stretch into fall, making beach days, outdoor dining and pleasant hikes more common than cozying up by a fire. The following five Canadian destinations are ones that often experience summer temperatures well into fall.

Is The Gig Economy Hurting Public Transit?

To some, it's the shared economy disrupting the old business models. To others, it's the gig economy that denies workers full-time hours and a living wage. Regardless of its name, the new economy is disrupting more than the established business norms. It is forcing grown-ups to live with their parents and is likely causing the decline in public transit ridership.
Montreal is Quebec's largest city and the second largest municipality in Canada. It is one of two large islands in the St. Lawrence River and takes its name from Mount Royal, a large hill in the centre of the city. It was the site of a bustling Mohawk town when first visited by French explorer Jacques Cartier in 1535. In the century that followed, missionaries settled the area and the town became a key link in Canada's fur trade. Today, Montreal is a cultural hub of film festivals, comedy clubs and city-wide bilingualism. It's home to the Just For Laughs international comedy festival, Osheaga, and Cirque du Soleil. It's also home of the Montreal Canadiens and the Montreal Alouettes.
