Samuel De Champlain Bridge lit up in green to mark World Environment Day

The Samuel De Champlain Bridge will take on a green hue from sunset on Friday, June 5, to 1 a.m. to mark World Environment Day. The United Nations has designated Montreal as North American host city to promote environmental awareness and protection.

“The Samuel de Champlain Bridge is the ideal symbol to shine a light on the importance of sustainable infrastructure and protecting our environment, wildlife, and nature. This bridge not only connects communities and businesses, it promotes active transportation and helps create a stronger, cleaner future for our kids and grand-kids.” — Catherine McKenna, Minister of Infrastructure and Communities
