Global readies Greater Montreal Day promotion
Television channel Global Montreal will conduct a promotion called "Greater Montreal Day" in that city on May 10. The event encourages residents of the city to perform acts of kindness for each other and then post about it on social media sites. Two of these messages will be selected at random and the contributors will receive $1,000 donations to a charity of their choice. The promotion will include coverage on Global News broadcasts in the morning, at noon and in the evening. Global Montreal owned by Corus Entertainment Network.
"We were thrilled with the response we got from Montrealers for the first Greater Montreal Day, so we are beyond excited to bring it back for another year," said Karen Macdonald, news director at Global Montreal. "On May 10 we are happy to support our friends and neighbours and highlight the many ongoing efforts that make our city a greater Montreal."
