For dog bylaws that really protect the public
Welcome to Projet Montréal! Like you, we have everyone's safety at heart. And like you, we know that bylaws based on the breed or appearance of dogs (BSL) are ineffective in protecting the public. All the experts, including the City of Montreal's chief veterinarian, agree on this.
Since 2013, Projet Montréal took a public stand against these kinds of bylaws. Rather, we think it is important to properly and rigorously apply existing regulations, notably regarding leashes and registration, which is not currently being done.
This bylaw appears to have been drawn up in an improvised manner, in response to recent events, in order to create a false sense of security. On questions of security, there is no place for simplistic and populist approaches. Elected officials must make their decisions based on facts.
If you share our view, we encourage you to join or donate to our party. We need your support in order to push the Coderre Administration to revisit their position. Thank you for your support!
