MONTREAL, Aug. 28, 2020 /CNW/ - The Samuel De Champlain Bridge will continue to shine its rainbow lights on Sundays during the month of September as the country safely restarts the economy and takes more steps to become pandemic-resilient. The rainbow illumination will take place from 9:00 p.m. to 10:00 p.m. (i.e. 30 minutes earlier than in previous months).
"In the Greater Montreal area, and throughout the country, important steps have been taken to strengthen our communities and restart the economy as we adapt to the COVID-19 reality. As a symbol of our resilience, the rainbow lights on the Samuel De Champlain Bridge will be lit again for one hour every Sunday night in September. Stay strong and let's continue to work together at building a resilient and prosperous future."
— The Honourable Catherine McKenna, Minister of Infrastructure and Communities
