Buildings throughout Montreal are lighting up in rainbow colours (PHOTOS)

Apr 2 2020, 1:25 pm

Rainbows have become a symbol of hope and solidarity throughout Quebec and several buildings across Montreal are joining in the movement by lighting up their facades with a variety of colours.

Using the hashtag #cavabienaller on social media, buildings are showcasing creative ways to display rainbows with the slogan “ça va bien aller” (it’s going to be okay).

The slogan first started becoming popular on sidewalks and windows before the Samuel de Champlain Bridge and the Big O joined the lighting display. Most recently, the likes of the Maison Manuvie, the Université de Montréal, the Montreal Marriott Chateau Champlain, and others have joined in on the nightly illumination.

When nighttime falls on already darks days, look up throughout the city and marvel in the beauty of a city coming together to symbolize hope during the pandemic.
