During your visit on Ste-Catherine Street, you can admire the giant work The Legend of the Bears located in front of the Montreal Eaton Centre and share your best photos on social media. Inspired by a legend, Cree artist Jason Carter created this work at the request of XP_MTL in the hope of comforting all those who come across it. For the Cree, when a bear visits us in our dreams, it is a good omen that good things will happen. These three luminous bears watch over the downtown area and will bring you comfort.

"I hope these sculptures can remind us that we can always count on hope; that hope comes from within! Strength, willpower, compassion, comfort: all to be shared as we all have a light shining within us." - Jason Carter
