François Legault and Jonathan Drouin dish out Canadiens face masks at Montreal metro

Quebec’s premier and its hockey team joined forces in Montreal on Friday morning to hand out some Canadiens face coverings.

François Legault and Quebec’s Public Health Director, Dr. Horracio Arruda, partnered on a line with Habs forward Jonathan Drouin and General Manager Marc Bergevin at the Cadillac Metro to distribute face masks with the team’s iconic logo to those in need.

The government is strongly recommending Quebecers wear masks in public, especially in public transit and place where the two-metre physical distancing guideline is difficult to follow.

In a tweet, Legault joked he presented two different Stanley Cup scenarios to the Habs GM, saying in the short term, “we keep Shea Weber and Carey Price” and in the medium term, trade them both off for younger talent.

According to Legault, Bergevin didn’t respond.

Legault says the mask he wore to Thursday’s briefing was sent to him from the Habs captain and he’s happy that Weber doesn’t bear any ill feelings towards him after Legault proposed the Habs trade the All-Star defenceman this past January.
