As far as the orb itself goes, Science and Education Coordinator Sebastien Giguere with the Mont-Mégantic Observatory AstroLab concluded it was a “big” meteor. Well, yeah. Everyone watching the “tele” could conclude that much. However, Mr. Giguere was more scientific in his explanation of the meteor’s color when he explained that they physical composition of meteors is reflected in the color emitted when it strikes atmosphere. Given that the meteor initially displayed a bright green color, he assumed it was composed of magnesium. He also added that shooting stars occur daily. At least the entire incident made for some nice conversation.
Mysterious Green Orb Appears as Montreal Forecaster Reads the Weather Report
Montreal, Quebec, – The time was 10:27PM local time Thursday night at the TVA News station as climate forecaster Colette Provencher was delivering the weather report. She was being filmed atop the roof of the building with the city in the backdrop when a mysterious luminous orb suddenly came into focus in the background off to her right. In seconds, it grew in intensity as it traveled further down the skyline before vanishing into the horizon. Needless to say, the singularity of the event captured the attention of a number of viewers. As per TVA News, the color of the orb was initially bright green, but later turned to orange.
McGill's meteor expert, Pierre Hudon, says the ball of light could not have been a meteor because when a meteor flies through the sky, the entire sky lights up for several seconds.
I guess he means meteorite? Or he was misquoted? As it looks like it is on its way down to hit the Earth, but perhaps I'm wrong in my assertion and it was merely passing by...

It does aggravate me that the first place the person who made the video goes, is UFO.

I've seen orbs before and they look exactly like that and the way it disapears makes me doubt this would be a meteorite of some sort.
Found a youtube video for it, claiming the bloody thing is a UFO.
