Take note of this important day and let others know about this rally that will be taking place at Parc Lafontaine on Saturday, October 2nd, 2010. The following information was provided by the CANADIAN VOLUNTEERS FOR THE PROTECTION OF ANIMALS
WHY: Every year, World Animal Day (WAD) is celebrated worldwide. For the first time, Montreal will be participating in this special event. We wish to inform the public on the subject of the abuse of all species of animals, and to put pressure on our governments to amend our outdated animal rights laws.
WHERE: Parc Lafontaine at the Chalet/Restaurant
WHEN: Saturday, October 2, 2010 – 1:00pm to 4:00pm (Rain or shine)
ASSEMBLY: 1 p.m. at the Chalet/Restaurant
PARKING: On Calixa-Lavallée Ave. on the north side of Parc Lafontaine, off of Rachel St. East (free parking for 3 hours)
Invite your friends, neighbours, work colleagues and family members. TO TRULY HAVE AN IMPACT ON OUR GOVERNMENTS, WE NEED TO BE NUMEROUS!
BRING YOUR POSTERS OR BANNERS, with drawings or slogans relating to all forms of animal abuse and the inadequate federal & provincial animal rights laws.
Dogs on leash are welcome. Bring water for your pets and please remember to bring bags for your dog’s needs.
PLEASE WEAR A WHITE RIBBON to symbolize our wish to see the day when all animals can live in peace.
We are asking for people to print up a few copies of the .pdf format (which will come out as an 8-1/2 x 11 sheet) and post some in public in their areas – such as in pet supply stores, dog grooming salons, vet clinics, etc. We unfortunately don’t have the budget at the moment to provide printed copies of the poster, so whatever help people can offer with getting the word out is very much appreciated.
Thank you very much for your help
