Let's protect Montreal's calèche horses
At this rate, the horses’ life expectancy diminishes every day. The polluted air of the city affects their lungs and collisions between carriage horses and cars occur often. Calèche drivers seem insensitive to the well being of their horses, as even old and weak ones are forced to work long and toilsome hours.
If we do not put an end to this slavery, we are collectively responsible for the suffering of these horses, some of which are too exhausted to pull even the lightest carriage.
Projet Montréal and the Montreal SPCA have repeatedly called for a ban the use of horse-drawn carriages as a touristic attraction. However, actions have yet to be taken and it is important that we collectively denounce this barbarity in order to accelerate things.
Sign this petition as a sign of your support for the abolishment of this antiquated practice. The more we are, the more chances we have to be heard. Let us unite against the slavery of carriage horses in Montreal and end it as soon as possible!
