32nd night demo/fest faces thunderstorm
The 32nd consecutive demo-casserole-fest went on despite thunder, rain and a brief threat of tornado. By all reports, more neighbourhoods are doing casserole actions – and the Quebec finance minister says he approves of them and is going to help Montreal pay for the costs of the demonstrations.
(Some part of this is really about Montrealers going completely nuts when summer finally arrives, isn’t it? Not all of it, obviously. But it’s in there somewhere.)
Anyway, although the demo was technically illegal, at 12:30 I’m seeing no reports of arrests or trouble.
