Te Samuel De Champlain Bridge will continue to show rainbow-colours of support to Montrealers and Canadians until the end of July.

Infrastructure Canada has announced the Champlain Bridge will light up every Sunday from 9:30 pm to 10:30 pm until at least the end of this month.

Officials remind people to respect public health’s directives including the need to avoid gatherings.

“The Samuel De Champlain Bridge has become a symbol of hope across Greater Montreal in the face of COVID-19,” says  Catherine McKenna, Minister of Infrastructure and Communities.

“I am pleased that the bridge will continue to display its rainbowlights every Sunday evening in July to honour our front-line workers and remember those we have lost. The lights are also a reminder to all of us to follow the guidance of our public health officials. Continue to take care of yourselves, your loved ones and your community.”
