But yesterday afternoon, Montreal mayor Valérie Plante announced that due to to heavy rainfall, Halloween would be postponed until Friday, November 1.

Avis météo: j’invite les petits et grands Montréalais.e.s à passer l’#Halloween vendredi en raison de la pluie et des vents violents annoncés demain. Nos services seront au rendez-vous, et faites preuve de prudence comme à l’habitude. Bonne cueillette de bonbons! #polmtl

She just... tweeted out a new date for a major holiday.


Just curious: Is this... allowed?
