Hey, remember when a calèche horse was found running through the streets of Montreal without its coach? Or that time a horse was found collapsing from exhaustion? Well, I surely do; and I'm sure many of you do, as well.\nIn my humble opinion, the calèche situation isn't the greatest. Stories like the ones above come out all the time, and personally, I get really horrified whenever they do. Admittedly, I don't know what the solution is for this - all I know is that something needs to be done.\nApparently, I'm not the only one who thinks this way. Although the above situations are seriously not cool, they at least served as a catalyst for people to express their displeasure with calèches.\nAnd, friends, someone listened.\nMontreal mayor Denis Coderre has put a one-year ban on calèches, effective Tuesday, in order for the city to review the current calèche situation.\nAlthough this is not technically a permanent ban, it's still a huge step in the right direction in order to improve conditions. All I know is that I'm super glad that, at least for this year, we won't be hearing any more horror stories about this.\nSource\nAdd mtlblog on Snapchat.
