François Gourd, leader of the political joke party, Neo-Rhino Party ( is inviting Montrealers to come out to Lafontaine Park this Sunday to… well, slow down! Read on…

Gourd simply believes that in our modern day world, we’re too preoccupied with everything other than just stopping and enjoying life. That’s why he’s taken it upon himself to organize la Journée de la Lenteur! Activities planned include musicians (without a stage or electricity), a one-hour do nothing workshop, a slow race, knitting, painting, yoga and tai-chi.
