The City of Montreal is hosting public consultations regarding its animal control bylaw, following the party’s decision to end the city’s pit bull plan.
During her election campaign, Mayor Valérie Plante and Projet Montreal promised to lift the pit bull plan put in place by former mayor Denis Coderre.
In December, Projet Montreal followed through with their promise and took the necessary steps to repeal the ban.
Now the City wants more public input regarding the amendment to the animal control regulations.
En cette #AnnéeduChien, repensons ensemble la réglementation sur nos animaux de compagnie! Votre participation est essentielle.

Eight separate consultations will be held in four boroughs on February 24 and March 3.
There is also a new website where citizens will be able to share their input on the new regulations.
Following the consultations, the City will draft a bylaw that will be presented to council.
