The Morning Show discovered what makes them a true Montrealer...in the summertime. From bicycles in your way on the road to lineups at Calem Ice Cream Shop, you know you're a Montrealer when this happens to you in the summertime...


You line up for hours outside of Shwart'z Deli

You know it's summertime in Montreal when you see a lineup outside of the town's infamous Shwart'z Deli...I mean, who wouldn't want a world famous smoked meat sandwich on a sunny summer day??

You nearly collide with a cyclist on the road

Careful, Montreal! Cyclists are EVERYWHERE on the roads in the summertime! To be honest, we'd swap our car for a bicyle any day if it meant avoiding heavy Montreal traffic...

You realize the beaches here aren't so...clean

One thing Montreal is missing is more beaches. Though Verdun beach and nearby Oka beach are both nice, they quickly make you realize how the water from our rivers isn't the cleanest. Take us to the Bahamas instead, please!

You keep hearing 'Hey, did you see that show last night?'

If there's one thing that marks summer has arrived in Montreal...it's festival season. Before you know it, you'll be tired of hearing people ask you if you saw 'that show last night'. 

You've taken 16 detours to get to your destination

Montreal in the summer + traffic = a true love story. If you plan on driving around in Montreal this summer, make sure to plan ahead to avoid taking 16 different detours and lengething your trip by 4 hours. Trust us, you'll thank us later!

You hit a pothole and suddenly start swearing in French

Even anglophones know that the roads must be pretty bad when a bunch of French swear words suddenly come out while driving. Has this ever happened to you??
