The public could still access the Notre Dame Basilica, Wednesday afternoon, less than 24 hours before the chapel where the remains will be exposed to Rene Angelil, husband of Celine Dion.
No additional security measures had been deployed in mid-afternoon.
People will gather in and take pictures of the tourists on the steps of Notre Dame Basilica, and in the aisles, as is the case every day.
However, it was impossible to park in the area, where many curious admirers and well-known personalities from all over the world are expected over the next two days to pay their last tribute to the deceased impresario January 14, surrounded by his family, in Las Vegas, Nevada. He was 73 years old.
On Saint-Sulpice, located west of the Notre-Dame Basilica, technicians are busy Wednesday afternoon to install the cables on a scaffold that will enable live broadcasting of different ceremonies over two days.
The public can file past the coffin of René Angélil from 14 pm on Thursday, on the occasion of the chapel.
As for the state funeral will be celebrated at the stroke of 15 pm, Friday.
