It went well actually - Here is a link to some video coverage (http://montreal.ctvnews.ca/dog-owners-protest-proposed-animal-control-bylaw-1.922476) as well as what Carmy had to say about it. (and they DID make the news :) ) woohoo!


""We weren't many but we made a fuss !! The guard closed the doors to city hall and then the police arrived. The whole thing was very peaceful and a few passionate people spoke from the heart.
I believe 3 different dog shelter representatives did their best to explain to the crowd what was going on both in English and in french. I wish that all the animal shelters ( dogs cats etc. ) would come together to help the people of Quebec understand the seriousness of this horrible situation.
I do not believe there is enough awareness. How can we change things if no one knows about the issues. TV cameras were there and hopefully we made the news."

I hope the city see's the light and helps to address the real problem.
