Yup, "tout le monde et gai" (everyone is gay) but it's mostly approaching the Beaudry metro station (near the gay village in Montreal) where you still see mustaches like that.

For those who have never been on the Montreal light rail, the opening perfect 4th, perfect 5th that the jingle starts off with is the actual sound the trains make when they accelerate. I don't think it is a coincidence that it is the same opening three notes of Aaron Copland's Fanfare for the Common Man (also a noted gay composer, though I don't think that was on their minds when they chose the motif.)

Kathleen Supove

the only thing missing is the MENTOS!

Sorry, close to bedtime and I was missing keys. "tout le monde EST gai" is what I meant to type, and is what the lyric is in the jingle.
