It went well actually - Here is a link to some video coverage 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."

Me, too, DD! This is such an ill-considered law.

Kudos to Carmy and all who showed up to speak their piece!!
