Happy Canada/Moving Day: Maybe a Month from Now We'll Have Moved Too!

In the Rest of Canada, this is the major national holiday, and while there will be some festivities in Quebec, the big thing in Montreal is moving. Most leases run from July 1 to June 30, and since more than half of Montrealers rent, there is a lot running around with trucks, vans and even bicycles. You have to book movers weeks, if not months in advance for the 10 day period around July 1.

And maybe we'll be moved in by August 1. The roof was replaced yesterday, the hardwood floors should be done today, and we have maybe a week of stuff that we have to do. That leaves 1 or 2 days of work that the general contractor has been promising to finish since the end of May. I would like to think that the week after next we'll be able to book movers for the end of the month!
