Sign The Montreal Petition To Make It Legal To Drink In All Parks

Picture this: An expansive grassy landscape. You, your special friend, a blanket, and a bottle of wine. Nothing  but the light from the moon, and the clinking of glasses to guide you through this magical evening. It sounds pretty good, doesn't it?

Well apparently, you're not the only one who thinks so. A citizens petition has just been released asking for the right to drink in parks without any food. The petition claims that it should be the right of city dwellers to enjoy Montreal's parks to the fullest extent, and depriving them of enjoying a cocktail in public, is infringing upon that right.

There are plenty of places in the United States and Europe where drinking with an open container in public is completely legal. So, this argument does have some legs. In fact, the petition already has 500 signatures, and they need only 1000 to get the attention of Mayor Denis Coderre. So if you feel passionately about public drinking then I suggest you sign up now.
