The City sees its citizens as a bunch of morons.

Speaking to Martine Painchaud, a spokesperson for the city, La Presse reports that now, if an animal is declared dangerous by a borough, the immediate sentence is death. The owner has 24 hours, in which they can hire an expert of their choosing to contest the sentence.

The flyers for the demonstration, as well as a statement posted on the Montreal SPCA’s website both say the new bylaw would give a dog’s owner 24 hours to obtain an evaluation from an animal behaviorist in order to appeal the decision to euthanize their dog. That claim was also refuted by Painchaud.

Si un chien constitue une nuisance, c’est la responsabilité de la Ville de protéger les citoyens contre cette nuisance», explique Martine Painchaud, attachée de presse à la Ville de Montréal.

La clause sur les animaux dangereux donnera donc 24 heures (au lieu de 48 heures actuellement) au propriétaire de l’animal, sans distinction de race, avant l’euthanasie si celui-ci «a porté atteinte à la sécurité d’une personne ou d’un animal». Il sera alors automatiquement déclaré animal dangereux par l’arrondissement. À partir de ce moment, la sentence sera l’euthanasie. «Si le propriétaire désire contester l’ordre d’euthanasie, il a 24 heures pour l’exprimer et s’engager à trouver un expert de son choix qui va ensuite échanger avec l’expert de la Ville», ajoute la porte-parole.

“Les pamphlets pour la manifestation, ainsi qu’une mention sur le site de la SPCA Montreal, disent tous deux que le nouveau règlement donnerait à un propriétaire de chien 24 heures pour obtenir une évaluation d’un expert afin d’en apeller de la décision de faire euthanasier leur chien.  Ceci a également été refutée par Martine Painchaud.”

  1. a protest may just be seen as a fringe group of people doing what Quebecers do best. requesting a public consultation shows that citizens are serious and want to be taken seriously.

  2. Ineligible subjects Certain matters are ineligible and will not be considered for public consultation if they concern, for example: the sharing of powers, or the governance or the status of the City administrative organization or contracts management budget, fees or taxes an urban development project for which a public consultation or approval by referendum has already been prescribed by law a project that has already been submitted for public consultation within the previous three years a call for tenders, pending or completed, or for which a contract has already been awarded a matter pending before the court or a matter that was the object of a judgment, or an out-of-court settlement.

  3. a proposed bylaw (public policy) would not be ineligible. that is what the process is in place for.
