Dear Members,

There has recently been a great deal of interest in the reaction of the climbing and hiking community to the loosening of restrictions on outdoor activities. The Alpine Club of Canada Section Montreal has been at the heart of recent news stories (see video below) with an appearance by Paul Robitaille, Club President, Nick his son and Toby Harper Merrett, VP Sections ACC on the CBC Montreal evening news and the corresponding web story.

In addition, Steve Traversari (long time member of the club and executive) was interviewed on Daybreak on CBC 1 which aired this Tuesday.

The message: Respect the guidelines of the public health organisations, and as a section we will do everything we can to get back outdoors hiking and climbing safely!
