The Redpath's Science Outreach Administrator Ingrid Birker takes Morgan on a Flashlight Tour past the mummies of Egypt, the prehistoric dinosaurs, and the animals and minerals of Quebec.
These nighttime tours are part of Montreal's annual Nuit Blanche, which features more than 200 activities late into the night. This is a very popular event and one that the whole family can enjoy (from 7pm to 1am).
If you're like more information, go to http://www.montrealenlumiere.com/nuit-blanche-en/ .
Also, the STM has organized free shuttle buses between some of the neighbourhoods featuring Nuit Blanche activities and the metro stays open all night: http://www.stm.info/en/offers-and-outings/events/nuit-blanche

Lace up your skates! Parc-Jean-Drapeau in Montreal unveils its refrigerated skating path this weekend at the Fete-Des-Neiges.
But if you're going there today and plan on skating on the path, you may need to catch up with our next guest. Former short-track speed skater François-Louis Tremblay will be on the path!
François-Louis Tremblay has won 5 Olympic medals and many world championship medals, including a gold medal from the Vancouver Olympics in the relay.
He'll be taking the slow lane on the new refrigerated skating path, along with fellow Olympian Mathieu Turcotte later today. François-Louis Tremblay joins Sonali Karnick in studio.
