Leo Varadkar will kick off his three-day visit to Canada with a bilateral meeting before marching alongside Justin Trudeau in today's Montreal Pride parade.

The Taoiseach is then expected to travel to Toronto where he will discuss CETA and trade agreements between Ireland and Canada.

Ahead of the visit, supporters of the Repeal the Eight campaign started a viral hashtag #justinformleo, calling on the Canadian Prime Minister to approach the issue of Ireland's abortion ban, and educate Leo on the progressive Canadian system.

Ailbhe Smyth from the Coalition to Repeal the 8th said: "I would really like to see someone like Leo Varadkar would have an understanding that it is not enough to come out in favour of one aspect of human rights while completely ignoring another."

Leo is also expected to meet with business and tourism leaders and attend a reception with the Irish community in the city.



He never actually finished school – leaving Coláiste ­Mhuire in Mullingar when he was 16 and on the cusp of international stardom. 

And while Niall Horan has since confessed that he wasn't always the most dedicated pupil in the classroom, he evidently was paying attention during French.

In a video clip posted to Instagram late last night, the 22-year-old One Directioner can be seen asking Mark, a burly member of his entourage, where they're off the next.

The best part? He asks in lightning-quick, très bien français.

The post has now notched up more than 400,000 likes and has attracted numerous comments which compliment Mr Horan on his pronunciation and proficiency.

En route to French-speaking Montreal in Canada, Niall and the rest of his One Direction bandmates last night performed at the Olympic Stadium as part of their On The Road Again tour, which concludes in October.  

The pop-star was due to sit his Leaving Cert back in 2012, but after finding success on The X Factor in 2010, he left school aged 16.

He later spoke of his regret that he never got to see out his days in the classroom.

"My childhood was cut short by The X Factor," Niall explained last year. "One Direction took off and I never really got the chance to finish school or do my exams or anything like that."



Her fashion choices and style have won serious compliments over the last few months – a time during which she began experimenting a lot more with her look.

And while today is the most anticipated in Kylie Jenner's series of 18th birthday celebrations, for once not everyone is all that taken with what she has on.

Taking part in a meet-and-greet event at Beach Club in Montreal, where serious festivities will kick off later this evening, the teenage reality TV star largely failed to impress.

"She's ONLY 18 BUT Looks 30 …. too MUCH surgery at such an early age," said one observer. Another commented: "She could at least look happy," while a third was even blunter: "She looks bad!!"

For the occasion, she had worn a Mugler white crop top and matching knee-length white skirt in leather.

The label is also a favourite of her sister Khloe Kardashian, although it doesn't come cheap: the top costs €910, while the skirt is €1,217.

However, at least her evening outfit seems a lot more snazzy: she emerged on the Beach Club decks wearing oversized aviators and a short, multi-coloured mesh dress.

The massive venue is sometimes called Canada’s answer to Ibiza: a mini party island with a beach, pool, A-list DJs… and lots of booze.  

Ms Jenner is allegedly being paid €175,000 by Olivier Primeau, the club's owner, just to show up.

She has already taken to Snapchat to share clips of her helicopter ride to the spot – although, initially anyway, there is no sign of her boyf Tyga, or her sisters.


She's lately been experimenting with a LOAD of different hairstyles and colours. 

And frankly, we can't wait to see what Kylie Jenner wears this evening for her MASSIVE birthday bash, which is taking place in Beach Club in Montreal.

Of course, she's already been marking the moment in style since hitting her milestone 18 years a week ago – but tonight is very much expected to be the biggest and best event in the series of planned festivities.

The reality TV star, who lately has been experimenting with a load of diverse hairstyles, hinted that she's about to unveil yet another look for the occasion: namely a dramatic grey hue.

Last weekend for a celebration in an LA nightclub, Kylie wore a long blonde wig. She also experimented with a 'bronde' version – and earlier this year has furthermore had a mop of blue locks.

Here, we take a look a her recent hair trends.

As all those who've been on a J1 will know – the legal drinking age in the US is a sometimes irritating 21 years.

Which might well pose a problem for anyone – no matter who they are – wishing to herald their 18 years with a champagne toast.

In fact, we've been wondering how a certain Kylie Jenner, who – finally! – turns 18 on August 10, will mark her milestone birthday… considering clubs and bars in her homeland are out.

Well, it has now been revealed that she's come up with a simple solution: jetting out of the United States and hitting Canada, where several provinces boast an 18-and-over alcohol policy.

​Yes, Kylie is throwing a mega-bash at Beach Club in Montreal. Basically, it's Canada’s answer to Ibiza – a mini party island with a beach, pool, A-list DJs and lots of booze. 

And rather than spending the night necking alcopops and doing shots at the bar while sporadically dipping into cocktail sausages and spicy potato wedges, Kylie's being paid €175,000 by Olivier Primeau, the club's owner, just to show up.

In fact, the reality TV star will be choppered in, landing on a luxury boat that will dock next to a table stocked with bubbly. She'll also celebrate with a giant €2,750 cake.

The venue itself is already gearing up for the unveiling: yesterday Oliver Primeau posted an image of bottles of Moet champagne signed by the famous revellers who have previously partied at Beach Club.

"The collection is about to get bigger," he said via his own account. "Can you guess who we're going to announce next?"

Sounds like it's going to be a night to remember. 



We thought Scott Disick had left his old party habits behind, but he reportedly was back to his old ways last night in Montreal.

In fact, following his appearance at Time Supper Club, the The Keeping Up With The Kardashians star has left many fans demanding refunds. And it's no wonder: they had paid an astonishing €230 for meet-and-greets, which it is alleged Scott was then too drunk to honour. 

To make the situation worse, the appearance was supposed to help raise cash for the ONEXONE $1 feed a child campaign. 

Scott has battled booze problems in the past, but he has argued previously that these personal appearances are where he makes a lot of his money. 

He had a particularly disappointing UK tour which he cut short following a number of unsuccessful appearances. 

At one gig in a Leeds nightclub, Scott was more than two hours later – and then proceeded to stay at the venue for just 20 minutes. Still, that slot was enough time for him to tell a crude joke, thus insulting the majority of those in attendance. 

Scott attended the appearance last night with a group of friends which included his celebrity pal, Joe Jonas. 

Marketing Director for the Montreal nightclub, Thierry Havitov, accused the 32-year-old father-of-three of showing up past midnight despite being given a five-figure fee, according to Mail Online.

"He was partying like a champ juggling shots of Belvedere and chasing it with Dom Perignon," the organiser furthermore told The Mirror. Mr Havitov added: “He was in party mode.”

Many onlookers also described him a drunken mess. The New York-native, who was surrounded by pals at the event, headed straight to the VIP area and was knocking back drinks with his party

“Scott was belligerent and refused to do the meet and greet, which meant organisers had to give all the money back,” a source told In Touch magazine. It was a complete disaster.”

Furthermore, some fans began to become impatient, which led to a fight breaking out. Mr Havitov has now apologised for the disastrous night: “We apologised for they're not being a meet-and-greet and said online we would reimburse people.

"There a lot of crying and a lot drama,” he said.

Scott was eventually ushered out by the party organisers.
