To Montrealers, July 1st is not only Canada Day, but also Moving Day!
That is because the vast majority of leases last from July 1st to June 30th. So every year on this day, thousands of people round up their friends to help them move (in return for pizza and beer, naturally). So if you're wondering what all those moving trucks are doing all over town, don't worry, people aren't fleeing the city by the masses -- this is very normal.
If you're in Montreal at this time of year, you may want to set aside July 1st to visit some residential neighbourhoods and witness this interesting social phenomenon first-hand... before heading to the more official Canada Day celebrations at night, of course!
