Today I was doing a bit of shopping when I saw police closing streets, I knew something was going on. I took out my camera and started to record. It turned out to be the Pedal for Kids (Pedalez pour les enfants in French) Charity Bike run. They donate money to sick kids in the Montreal Children’s Hospital. Check out the website here (today was the last day of the run)

This was the second day of shooting in Downtown Montreal, Its for the New Phantom Legacy Movie. They are portraying New York in the movie Because they had NYPD Cars (The Day before they had New York Yellow Cabs) and The Audi S6 had New York License Plates (RA0 7671).

P.S. for the people who don’t know why they don’t film in New York, it’s because it Costs much more to close a street in New York than it does in Toronto Or Montreal. A lot of films that are suppose to be portraying New York are actually shot in Toronto Or Montreal. Off the Top of my head I know Half baked (Starring Dave Chapelle Was shot on Yonge Street in Downtown Toronto (the scene with the dying horse)

A protest on May 13th 2009 for the violence happening in Sri Lanka. This was shot on Dundas and Yonge Street in Downtown Toronto. I Truly hate people killing others for any reason. I did not know about what is happening until recently, so this is my way of helping out by spreading awareness. I am not siding with anyone as I have the faintest clue about what is actually happening, however I do know that it needs to stop EVERYWHERE in the world!
