Did anybody go?

I went (I'm in Montreal) and it was such a great experience. We were downtown, there were over 900 of us, and this year all four hospitals participated so that moms who just gave birth would be counted too, as well as the moms and babies at the children's hospital who were pumping milk for thier premies. We got alot of media attention. I just did a search for "breastfeeding challenge" in the forums and didn't come up with mucy - I was surprised, would have thought this forum and even the mothering website itself would be all over this event.

How cool is that?

I knew nothing about this, unfortunately. I'm out of the loop these days (read: very self-centered, nine month pregnant woman). However, it sounds like it went really well. Awesome!

BTW, we're in Gatineau (five minutes from Ottawa) and frequently visit Montreal. Such a beautiful city!
