Saturday Photo: Sunny Day in a Spring That Is Coming on Fast

This is a weekend of demonstrations and parades. Not only is it St. Patrick's weekend--and Montreal is the home to the second oldest St. Pat's parade in North America and has been going continuously since 1824--but students are demonstrating against hikes in tuition fees.

One of the biggest parks in the city was filled with students and their families Sunday afternoon to protest the tuition changes. Of course, it helped that the weather has been absolutely gorgeous--almost scarily so. Here's a shot of a neighborhood park in Mile End, where kids were enjoying the afternoon even though the swings weren't up, the grass and trees were far from being green, and a little snow lingered in the shadows.
