We had a wonderful two days at the École de Technologie Supérieure, representing the interests of Parc Gallery to a wide range of politicians, urban planners, artists, community groups, students, current and incoming residents of Griffintown, and the general public. Our kiosk was set up by Claude T. and Isabelle R., who covered it with our photographic portraits of the dogs, taken in 2010, borrowed from the park. We also had copies of our publication, and the all-important petition. Over the two days we collected 100 additional signatures and now have more than 300! A great day.

For sure we had the brightest and most colourful kiosk! We were lucky to be right beside Shauna Janssen + her Urban Occupations Urbaines display - without Shauna we would never have known about Parc Gallery.

Thanks to Kathleen, Jean, Michael and Janice for stopping by! Also to Jesse for joining us in the afternoon.
