Montreal Canada Day parade marches ahead despite heat warning

  Montreal Canada Day parade marches ahead despite heat warning Temperatures are expected to rise to a high of 32 C, which will feel like 47 with the humidex. The heat will be accentuated by mainly sunny skies. Festivities start at 11 a.m. with the parade heading east along Ste-Catherine Street from Fort Street, ending in Place du Canada. According to Nick Cowen, the festival's organizer, many of the parade's participants are used to the heat and will bring extra water. "Not only are Montreal police present, the ambulances are also on standby," Cowen said.   He added that organizers will roam around the parade route on golf carts to ensure things run smoothly.

The president and CEO of Terralink Horticulture says the man who posted on Facebook worked at the company — until he was fired Tuesday morning for his post.

"It's pretty shocking, especially when it's someone who's working for your firm," Stan Loewen said. "We think that we're done with this in the country, in Canada — obviously we're not."

Loewen says he hopes the Sikh community knows the man who wrote the racist post is not an accurate representation of Canada and the Abbotsford community he calls a cultural mosaic.

The Khalsa Diwan Society said it was pleased to see action taken immediately but reiterated the pain the man's post caused to the community.
