MONTREAL -- Following in the multi-coloured path of the Jacques Cartier Bridge and colouring pages posted in windows across the province, the Montreal Biosphere will light up like a rainbow starting Sunday.

Though closed due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Biosphere will join the #everythingwillbealright movement and shine in multicolour from Ile Sainte-Helene’s Parc Jean-Drapeau as a "ray of hope during these difficult times."

The city closed adjacent Ile Notre-Dame Sunday morning after a Saturday where many did not adhere to physical distancing norms.

ON THE BRIGHTER SIDE is introducing a new series of uplifting stories as the world grapples with the COVID-19 pandemic.
