...some good news! Jesse Fuchs (Caroline), Claude Trépanier (Canelle) and Isabelle Roy (Duff) have been working to get the attention of local politicians and it has paid off. Sophie Thiebaut has agreed to meet with Jessy, Isabelle and pouf sometime over the next few weeks. The exact date is still pending but we are looking forward to presenting the initiative to Mme Thibaut soon. Claude has been in contact with Mayor Benoit Dorais' office, who have promised to read the Memoire about the project, and is awaiting a response. Thanks you everyone for the hard work.
In other news the Parc Gallery project has been posted on Montréal Dog Blog, a project initiated by long-time Montréal radio personality and dog lover Nat Lauzon. You can see the posting at: http://www.montrealdogblog.com/10936/montreal-dog-parks/, and learn more about Nat at: http://natlauzon.com/ or listen to her weekend show on 925 The Beat.
Also, anyone who is interested can take part in a study by a research team at the University of Waterloo's Department of Recreation and Leisure Studies who is looking at social interactions (between humans) in dog parks, and has chosen to base the study on the experiences of Montrealers.
