THE INSIDER'S REPORT: MONTREAL NEWS YOU NEED TO KNOW
Making the Commute Easier!!! 💯
Montreal's STM is set to ease the frustration of bus commuters by introducing more frequent 🚌 bus lines, mirroring the predictability of the metro system 🚇.
Wait times on these frequent lines will range from just two to 12 minutes ⏰, offering a more flexible approach for travelers ✈️.
With over half of bus travel in the greater Montreal area now on these frequent lines, including both all-day and peak period options 🌆, the city aims to ensure a smoother and less stressful commute, making it easier for people to "turn up and take off" without meticulous planning 🚀.
Weather Update: Winter is Coming! 🥶
The polar vortex's expansion and an amplified weather pattern are pushing it southward, bringing much cooler conditions with temperatures as much as 8 to 10 degrees Celsius below seasonal norms 🌬️❄️.
Despite the cold, there won't be snow in Quebec, but northern Ontario is anticipating wet snow over the holiday weekend ❄️🌨️. In Montreal, temperatures are set to plummet to 13 degrees Celsius during the day and seven degrees at night, with rainy conditions persisting for five days starting October 8, 2023 ☔🌧️.
Try Out Something new at A&W!🤤
Part of your Canadian education is us helping you learn about Canadian fast food, one of which is A&W. High quality burgers (family named, like the Teen Burger, the Mama, the Papa) and known for their ice-cold root beer. It's a thing, trust us.
Well, A&W is launching 3 new burgers !! The lineup features the Nashville Hot Chicken Cruncher with spicy glaze 🔥, the Chubby Chicken Cruncher with mayo and lettuce 🥪, and the BLT Chicken Cruncher with bacon, lettuce, and tomato 🥓🥬🍅.
The nearest A&W is a quick walk from CH on Atwater (A&W Canada). Pro-tip is having a takeout A&W burger that you sneak into Cineplex movie theater next door, suggestion of our movie-loving founder PJ lol.

We've noticed this week that it's happening a few times that members are forgetting their laundry when their cycle is done, forcing others to have to wait to use the machines. laundry traffic.
We want to remind you that you must take responsibility for their laundry and ensure that they collect all of their items once their load is finished.
While we provide laundry facilities for your convenience, we cannot be held responsible for any missing items.
Pro tip: to help you keep track of your laundry and avoid any mishaps, we recommend setting a timer on your phone. This will avoid someone putting your clothes in the dryer to free up a machine – and whoops your favorite shirt accidentally shrunk.
