A Montreal heatwave is a funny thing. It’s really quite mild by any global standard — the media usually start braying about a canicule after just three days of temperatures above 30 degrees — but it has a real effect on this mostly air-con-free city. The normally languid pace of life becomes even slower and stickier as everyone indulges in the short-lived burst of heat and humidity. Terrasses fill up well into the night and the city hums with idle conversation and the nocturnal buzz of insects.
