Canada/Montreal, Cabot Square in autumn!
Cabot Square opened in 1870 is an urban square in Montreal that located in the Shaughnessy Village neighborhood close to Pepsi Forum.
It takes the form of an urban green space and may otherwise be described as a park, though its status as a public square means there is a generally unenforceable curfew.
An access point to the Montreal Underground City can be found at the Northwestern corner of the square.
Installation artwork and conceptual sculptures have been integrated into the square as part of a broad urban beautification plan.
The monument to Italian-born English explorer John Cabot, was unveiled on 1935.

Canada/Montreal, Montreal Forum!
Montreal Forum (Le Forum de Montréal), the most storied building in hockey history, was an indoor arena located facing Cabot Square. It was the home of the Montreal Canadiens - HABS - from 1926 to 1996. The club's official name is le Club de hockey Canadien. The Forum was built in 159 days. Located at the northeast corner of Atwater and Ste-Catherine West, the building was historically significant as it was home to 24 Stanley Cup championships (22 of the Canadiens and two of the Montreal Maroons, for whom the arena was originally built). 
It was then completely gutted and converted into a downtown entertainment center called the Pepsi Forum, consisting of an AMC Theatres multiplex theater (now Cineplex Odeon), shops and restaurants. Center ice has been recreated in the center of the complex complete with a small section of the grandstand, along with a statue of a fan leaning forward in delight, while original seats are used as benches throughout the complex.

Canada/Montreal, Happy Halloween!
Halloween is a celebration observed in a number of countries on 31 October. It is widely believed that many Halloween traditions originated from ancient Celtic harvest festivals, particularly the Gaelic festival Samhain; that such festivals may have had pagan roots; and that Samhain itself was Christianized as Halloween by the early Church.
Halloween activities include trick-or-treating (or the related guising), attending Halloween costume parties, carving pumpkins into jack-o'-lanterns, lighting bonfires, apple bobbing, divination games, playing pranks, visiting haunted attractions, telling scary stories, and watching horror films. 
Homes are often decorated with elements of the autumn season, such as pumpkins, corn husks, and scarecrows, are also prevalent. Halloween imagery includes themes of death, evil, and mythical monsters. Black, orange, and sometimes purple are Halloween's traditional colors.

Canada/La Mauricie National Park,
The Pines Island (Île aux pins) in the middle of Lake Wapizagonke in La Mauricie National Park (Parc national de la Mauricie).
The park's forests have regrown and contain a mixture of conifers and mixed deciduous trees. Parks forests were once dominated by white pine. Logging in the 21st century and forest fires have contributed to a major decrease; today white pine accounts for only 1% of the trees of the park. To overcome this scarcity, the park has conducted prescribed burns since 1994 in order to eliminate competing species and facilitate the germination of seedlings.
