Required action

Ban horse-drawn carriages in Montreal

The petition
Mister Mayor,

Following the recent incidents that occurred in with horse-drawn carriages in Montreal, we are demanding the acceleration of the decision-making process concerning the ban of horse-drawn carriages.

Each new incident demonstrates that time is running out. Horses should not have to suffer this way and drivers should not remain unpunished for their acts of cruelty and barbarity towards horses.

Many of us do not wish to see horses working until exhaustion in our streets anymore. We believe that the numerous attractions that the city of Montreal has to offer will be more than satisfying to tourists, even without the calèche industry.

Should actions not be taken quickly, we are asking that you introduce a regular examination of the health of each and every horse in order to assure its well being and proper treatment.

Should these conditions not be respected, we demand that sanctions be imposed and that the horse be placed in a safe environment. We also demand that the license of any driver who infringes the regulation be removed immediately, accompanied by a prohibition to practice in the future.

We look forward to actions being taken.

The letter
Mister Mayor,

Following the recent incidents that occurred in with horse-drawn carriages in Montreal, I am writing to ask for the acceleration of the decision-making process concerning the ban of horse-drawn carriages.

Many of us do not wish to see horses working until exhaustion in our streets anymore. We believe that the numerous attractions that the city of Montreal has to offer will be more than satisfying to tourists, even without the calèche industry.
