Welcome back to the CH Show!!! ๐Ÿ“บ - This is the weekly update to keep you abreast of whatโ€™s good in Montreal, the city we love โค๏ธ, as well as updates from your beloved student residence community ๐Ÿก (and another benefit is this keeps parents back home jealous at all times & updated enough not to blow up your phones lolโค๏ธ๐Ÿ™ ).
