Maybe Coderre did lose because of his controversial pit bull law. If it wasn’t the only reason, Montrealers had several others to choose from, but we won’t get into all that.
Most dog owners in Montreal breathed a sigh of relief because Denis Coderre lost the 2017 municipal election. And, with his loss there is hope again for animal lovers who own “dangerous dogs.”
We know for sure that the Montreal SPCA is happy Coderre lost because Valerie Plante seems open to discuss these animal issues.
More than that, she and her party promised to repeal the pit bull ban if elected. And elected she was, so she has to keep her promise – hopefully.
There were many restrictions put on existing pit bulls in Montreal, including muzzling these dogs when outside the dog’s home.
