MONTREAL BANS CRUEL HORSE-DRAWN CARRIAGES 06/21/2018

Officials in Montreal, Canada recently passed a ban on horse-drawn carriages (known as "caleches") that requires operators to cease the cruel practice by December 31, 2019. "It's something we promised in our campaign very clearly," City Councillor Craig Sauve said. "There have been cases of horses being mistreated, horses dying while doing their caleche activities. There's issues there and it's a lot of resources we have to put in on the city's side, so we decided in the campaign that we're going to put an end to this industry." The ban comes after continued campaigns against caleches by animal-rights group Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals and political party Projet Montreal. Projet Montreal leader and Montreal Mayor Valérie Plante hopes to replace caleches with modern electric vehicles. (vegnews.com)
