As you can see in the above video, life in my neighbourhood is basically on pause. The street where I live isn’t downtown Montréal, but it normally is a pretty busy street. It is now quieter than I would have ever imagined, except on Sunday, at noon. Until Easter, all the churches of the city of a 1000 belfries ring their bells for ten minutes, as a sign of solidarity.
Québec’s lockdown has been extended until May 4th this morning. As days become weeks, and weeks add up, the distance is more and more palpable. I feel for the people who are alone and lonely… And I hope that little moments, like this one, brighten their days.
