GAIA PHOTOS BY CIRQUE DU SOLEIL FOUNDER GUY LALIBERTÉ

Guy Laliberté, founder of the widely-acclaimed Cirque du Soleil, is the most famous clown in Canada, possibly the universe. You might have heard about his 11-day civilian-in-outer space expedition in 2009, which I guess also makes him an astronaut! But did you know that Laliberté is also a photographer?

MONTREAL’S COMICCON IS GOING TO BE AWESOME

CELEBRITY SPOTTING IN MONTREAL

When celebrities come to Montreal, they’re just like normal tourists. Take Jake Gyllenhaal for example. When he was here filming Source Code, he stayed in a hotel, played with his dog, ate in restaurants and shopped in stores. The only difference is that, when celebs do it, we take detailed mental notes and then blab about them to our friends. Here are some recent Celeb sightings in Montreal…
