Canadians across the country are taking on climate change and one city is even offering up free transit for people. The Montreal's free transit for the climate strike is in support the rally happening in the city. Now it's way easier to get out and strike.\nValérie Plante, Montreal's mayor, announced on September 25 that all transit in the city would be free because of the climate strike.\nShe tweeted out that she was the one who made the decision to offer free transit and that "we're waiting for you to be by our side for the future of the planet."\nPlaces where people would usually pay for transit, like on turnstiles, were covered with paper that reads "free transport" and has the date of the climate strike on it. While wasting all that paper might not be the most environmentally friendly way to inform people of free transit, the sentiment is great.\nPeople were quick to share their opinions about the free public transit as they encountered the signs at transit stops.\nBravo @stminfo! #marcheclimat #polqc pic.twitter.com/5tROKcOSnb— Kathleen Weil (@Kathleen_Weil) September 27, 2019\nIt is #climatestrikecanada day in Montreal.

The fact that Montreal is making public transit free, so people can get to the strike is great! #lvcsoc https://t.co/4GdXanEt7m— Jada Calloway (@JadaCalloway5) September 27, 2019\nMontreal's climate strike is part of the larger Global Climate Strike happening across Canada and the world today. The strikes are meant to disrupt business as usual and show the world that action on climate change is needed now.\nEveryone is welcome at the strikes and the one in Montreal has some very important people attending.\nClimate activist Greta Thunberg, whose climate strikes in Sweden kickstarted this movement, is attending the climate strike in Montreal along with Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and Green Party leader Elizabeth May.\nBut of course, they won't be the only ones there.\nAbout 300,000 people are expected to come to the strike in Montreal and having free public transportation for the day could cost transportation companies $900,000 according to a spokesperson for the political party Québec Solidaire.\nMontreal's mayor has also invited Thunberg to city hall to receive the key to the city after today's march.\nThere are stories everywhere.
