Thanks to the tireless campaign of the all volunteer Anti-Caleche Defense Coalition and a sympathetic and courageous Mayor, the abusive carriage horse industry in Montreal, Canada, will shut down as of December 31, 2019.
The City of Montreal began offering to buy the horses May 1, 2019 at $1000 per horse, which is more than the owners would get at an auction. The City, in conjunction with local organizations, will have the horses adopted.
Bravo to the City of Montreal and their Mayor. Congratulations to the Anti-Caleche Defense Coalition on your inspiring victory.
