The Monitor’s Feb. 5 weekly edition looked like any ordinary issue.
According to the West End paper’s front page, in local news, local politicians protested the new Montreal “face mask” bylaw. The Arts & Life section promised a review of the musical about Edith Piaf starring a Montrealer (“Perfectly Piaf!”) on page 18. The bottom of the page advertised little boxes of homes for sale.
The main scoop that week was “A woman of words,” an interview with Blue Met literary festival founder and NDG author Linda Leith. She is smiling against a backdrop of books, holding her the yellow cover of her latest book in her hands.

“Final Print Edition” is written in capitals under “This Week on the Internet” in the lower left corner of the front page.
