"Welcome back to the monocle daily. I'm andrew miller still with me. Are our guests. Married to jetski. And steve crawshaw now. There are few political gambles quite like the snap election. They are traditionally called by two kinds of government. Won the beleaguered. If not downright embattled kind feeling it has nothing much left to lose beyond what remains of its dignity and anything is worth a heave at this point all the reasonably comfortable administration which reckons it can improve on. Its present position justin trudeau. Prime minister of canada falls into the latter category though he has been leading a minority government since the last election in two thousand nineteen. He is polling quite well and has accordingly called a snap election for september twentieth. Mary the snap election is also by definition an early election How early is too early though. This is a full two years ahead of schedule. Well i suppose he would probably say in his defence That he's running a minority government. So if you can improve on your position even after just two years that's quite good But it does look like. It doesn't look like opportunism over naked. Kind because it appears that. He's trying to capitalize on his government's performance during the pandemic When canada looked rather good compared with some big southern neighbor so It'll be very interesting to see where the canadian voters actually by that or whether they decide to do what sometimes happens when people call and you get punished for it well. There is a balance here. Steve because on the one hand it tends to annoy voters that you you've held another election you go into ruin their saturday or thursday or whatever day of the week you have your elections but you do at least spare them along campaign. I mean this this. This is pretty brisk. Do you have a favorite example. Though of i snap election going off in someone's face we have had one here not all that long ago we have. I mean that's kind of the romanian impossible. Is the elephant in the british room. For sure of theresa may who is going to quote unquote get brexit don and was kind of not getting done. But we're getting get it done. The so clearly which needs to do is to hold a brisk election and to strengthen majority to be able to do everything marvelously because it looked like money in the bank. Get brexit don. You had another obligingly hopeless opposition front pages from that period. There's glorious series of front pages. How she was going to absolutely walk it. This was the daily mail. Caster buca wanted. I think i seem to recall so the champagne was already either on into the into the fridge. To to to celebrate this and of course he went badly badly wrong And with all the cascading implications that we saw later. The boris johnson. The figure who nobody wanted came in. And and all the the fact that for all the criticisms anyone might have had of theresa. May you have to say she was trying to be. And i have very very many including at times him secretary But she was trying to do the right thing in her own terms and that blue wop in ways that will have you know. We'll continue to have echoes. In britain years to come so within democracies it can definitely go badly wrong where it goes wrong in dictatorships. that's of course even more fun for sure Do you have any favorite snap election. Mishaps mishaps. I'm not sure about mishaps i mean. I think that it's probably worth looking back. As angela merkel reaches the end of her chancellorship that she actually came to power. I seem to remember after. Gerhard schroeder called a An early election Not by choice but because he was forced by losing a vote of confidence. But that is how Malcolm began her time at the top of german politics but she didn't win very convincingly and it wasn't it wasn't a very certain start But i suppose Against staying on the home front in the uk we we've got the example of The one that didn't happen Gordon brown who didn't hold us nappy election when probably should have done to Establish himself after. Tony blair and he He failed to do that and he was punished by the voters for almost the opposite when he did run for election and he was he was basically thought offers having being too much of a coward to go ahead with the election. That is quite the parallel time. Line isn't it. To think that gordon brown calls an election two thousand eight hundred. He might be partway through his third term. In downing street right now Lettuce just move on. Finally on our panel to exciting new avenue open to us by the internet. Welcome to review bombing the threatening of authors with career destroying one-star reviews on such platforms as good reads and amazon. According to a report in time magazine which i do recommend because it is bleakly hilarious office being menaced only the for purposes of blackmail or ideological a prospect sufficient to strike here and strike fear in fact into the heart of writers who ought to cite a completely random example nurturing good read of three point eight styles from six hundred forty six ratings all four books still readily available etc. Avoid the reviews. Steve stevo mary ever being reviewed bondo taken part in a review bombing. I said we haven't taken politics. There was one famous occasion where a historian decided to Post them nassir views of a rival his previous guests on this program a very distinguished history so that was kind of interesting on my own. I feel more that way. It's smooth reviews coming sometimes. I feel. I'm not quite sure whether you actually read the book or understood it But most of them have failed. That the nicest actually experience. I had on was discovering my very elderly mother who is then kind of passed ninety. I think it had gone under her maiden name had decided to go on amazon to post a review saying how marvelous to britain by steve crucial was not using her action. Eight years later. I never said. I didn't actually see it at the time when she never told me the parental loyalty. I'm pretty sure i am pretty sure. Roy have the mum review on amazon myself. Though i would like special shoutout at this point to the review of hutu. Todd one of my books on amazon. Saying it's not a novel and and it wasn't. I mean no word of a lie. But i felt their assessment. The was somewhat harsh. In the circumstances there is a wider compensation here mary about the usefulness of online reviews where the review bombs or not. Do you take them seriously. When contemplating a purchase it depends how that couched in the sort of language in the sort of attitude. The the review as such betrays. Sometimes i do. Sometimes i don't mostly i don't Because one of my absolute pet hates is the email things that you subscribe to that then circulate things with things you might like recommended new etc etc and they immediately arouse reaction which says who are you to dictate what i want to read so i think they can actually have the reverse effect to whether it's recommendation or the complete opposite. Steve your purchases go to any extent by the recommendations of anonymous ranchos. I think no. It's not i'm very. I'm incredibly old fashioned. I will kind of google it to find a newspaper review the i respect. Say what did you think about it. And then i will meet clearly line then you could. If my favorite newspaper thinks it's okay. Then i at least pick it up in a bookshop. The has more old school. Like steve show and mary jetski. Thank you both very much for joining us. Time now on the daily for the second of our postcards from a selection of cities in north america which are holding merrill elections this year. Yesterday we heard from buffalo new york today where in canada in quebec's largest city montreal. The last time montrealers voted for mayor in two thousand seventeen. they achieved an electoral.

"And that's a really important legal principle because sentencing is supposed to take in a lot of different factors and and increasingly in canada. There's awareness around needing to take in factors related to colonization and colonial Colonial legacy colonial practices that are ongoing today and by handcuffing judges to be able to have that discretion and not just handcuffing them to not have discretion but then to force them to give mandatory minimum sentences it just through a lot of people into into prison that might have otherwise not been sentenced to prison and so like. It's really important to understand like the cruelty behind these changes that That were just so closely associated with the brand of steven harper. And you know yeah. It's curious that that gang moniker is Is mentioned here. And it makes me think of a situation. That just happened montreal. And i'm not sure if you've been following but a couple of weeks ago montreal. Police violently arrested mamadou camara who is a phd student and he witnessed An assault against a police officer and he called it in and he ended up being arrested. He spent six days in jail and He was only released because ministry of transportation camera caught footage of what had happened and completely exonerated him now. The mayor of montreal valerie plant was very steadfast in her opposition to what the montreal police had done. The mantra police refused to acknowledge that systemic racism played a role at all. Members is black and they sent like intimidating messages to the mayor to to make sure that she was not going to investigate what What happened and all this stuff. A couple of days later. A young woman was killed in a in an active What look with seemingly random violence and in response plant has announced that. There's going to be a new gangs division in the montreal police and it's just incredible that this happened within a couple of weeks Where she was like you know. Very strongly opposed to the montreal. Police had done the intimidate her and then she basically turns around and allows them more power based on that kind of moniker of gang violence in the city of montreal. Which is you say so tied to anti blackness into to racial profiling within policing that. It's something that. I just wanted to mention because i really hope people keep watching what happens there And so and so yeah like the the the reproduction of the understanding of gang violence as being violence committed by black people as if like organized crime in. This country is not majori organized by way. People is something that we definitely to to keep our eye out and sandy. I wonder how surprised to see this language. Considering someone like bill blair is involved in these discussions literally not surprised at all like this is what this man is known for in in..

"This is a cbc podcast during the course of this campaign. I had one goal in mind. I wanted to put montrealers i. I'm not going to change that. A lot of montreal is were ecstatic when on the fifth of november. Two thousand seventeen valerie. Plant a newcomer to city hall won the mayoral race in that city. Three years into her term. That sense of euphoria seems gone. Her city has been one of the hardest hit during the pandemic grappling with both the health and economic devastation. It's brought canadians. Want to get an idea of valerie. Plant is well. She's written a new graphic novel. Co written it in the book is called okay universe chronicles of a woman in politics. Mayor valery plants joins me now from montreal. mayor plants. good morning. Good morning wanna talk about your book. And just a moment. But i have to start with what's going on in your city right now. You are as i mentioned in the midst of this dual health and economic crisis. What did you see. Your role was as the magnitude of this disaster. Became clear i for me was It was clear that This pandemic was new for everyone even for the mayor and so what i decided to do was to make sure that no one would be left behind. That means that any type of measures. Whatever it's regarding health or housing we'd be would be there to complement the government's efforts during the first wave we did learn a lot but as an example i did put a lot of energy and making sure that people living in homelessness when be left alone because of course it did hit them and the most vulnerable worst. We have seen a rising cases across this country. I'm you mentioned. The first wave. Quebec is not doing much better than ontario. When it comes to this second wave why is it that you leaders in your province haven't been able to get the numbers under control well. This is a big question You know. I the first way there was some explanation that came of you know why it was difficult combat in quebec to contain the virus and and much all got hit very hard during the first wave and this time around. It seems like even though all the efforts been put together there. There's it's a. I wouldn't say out of control but numbers are getting higher and higher montreal was on the plateau for a very long time and it was very happy with that. Of course it now and we're seeing like you said and i'm tearing other provinces like it's it it it's hard to contain so.

"How do you think cities like yours will be changed after this pandemic I think that We were talking about opportunities just before talking about how we see. We share the the the the streets and sidewalks and all that I say there's no particular also to connect the economic recovery to connected to the social recovery as well as put it in the in the context of fighting climate change. So I I. I'm I'm really hoping that as we're you know we will be going through this crisis and afterwards we need to take the opportunity to think differently and for me. This is why I'm so happy to be with other mares. That are have the same ideas and we're pushing agenda of keeping climate change in our minds so we don't fall back into the same kind of habits so at least we re questioned some of the things we've been doing for for forever thinking that's the only way to do it or to develop or to do business so this is why. I find it very interesting in to share best practices and ways to go through the the crisis but especially the after the crisis. Montreal in the summer is one of the great places in this country and I mean it partially because people take over your city and they're out there enjoying themselves. Do you worry that people won't do that future that won't gather in the hundreds of thousands for the jazz festival for pride or just to be in the park With each other. Do you worry that that won't happen again? Well I'm I'm I'm especially worried about the big festivals right now. We don't see how this could happen this summer for obvious reasons. And we'RE NOT GONNA push it to a place where it would be dangerous for public health. you know to to have the festival in different offense so I I think that once we once they will be safe the city will be by your will will continue to vibrate with all those big events and festival but right now we need to concentrate on what's good for the population And for the gatherings and everything. This is where I find it interesting to already look at. How can I give more space public space to population? How can I make more pedestrian spaces? So people are taking over. You know. They're they're using their city even though they they will not be outside of watching a show under the stars like we used to do in the previous years. Just before I let you go. What do you miss about your city right now? It's a very different place when you're inside the kids. What would you miss about your city right? I do I miss well. Of course I miss like a very personal level is hard for me. I'm a very down to her kinda mayor and I go outside and meet people and this is what I love. I'm really connected to the citizens right now. Everybody's in their house and we're not talking. Well we're not meeting so of course. I will say like all everyone in Canada. I believe that are are waiting to have this just this moment where we can walk industry freely and not being afraid of our neighbor or the people that were meeting and keeping our two meters distance. But at the same time I do appreciate. How much are being disciplined? Disappoint and doing a lot of efforts staying in their home like we said without necessarily having a lot of space dealing with the kids which is not always easy dealing with all the financial struggle and they're proud of our of Montrealers but to be honest of quebeckers and Canadian. I think we're we're quite disciplined is It is it is great to speak with you. I look forward to being back in your city when it is at full throttle. Which is one of those great places. Thank you nice to talk to. You have a great day. Bellary is the mayor of Montreal. Card is a Montreal based health columnist with the Globe and Mail. He has been listening in Andre. Good morning to you. Good morning we you make of what we just heard from the mayor of your town. Valerie plant but how your city is coping and what she's up against. This is a city that is finding that flattening. The curve is more difficult than perhaps people initially imagined. Yeah this is the city. This is the epicenter of desouq break in Canada by far It's a big big issue in Montreal but I think as the mirror set montrealers are adapting. Were still out in a boat in large numbers but respecting social distancing trying to get our minds around this new normal like everyone else in the world and going on with like the Premier of Quebec Francois Ago as I mentioned to the mayor said that's the planned reopening retail stores and other non essential businesses in the Greater Montreal. Area would be delayed by a week. Is that the right call. Oh definitely I think The again the mayor said quite well at the city's just not ready yet to still. It's one of the only places in the country. That's not flattening the curve. The numbers are still going up. Daily hospitals are starting to get quite stressed. Or you know there is more than a thousand people in hospital just in the city of Montreal. That's probably as much as almost the rest of the country combined and yet on the other side of the country and British Columbia Bonnie Henry of the medical officer of health. There says that this is the end of the beginning of their pandemic. What do you make of? What's happening there? Well the very good news You know we have different. We don't have one Pandemic in Canada or one outbreak. We have a number of them in different. Parts of the country were big country Very different world in British Columbia Deneen Quebec Montreal today so they're adapting and and I think she's right and I think our wording is perfect. It's you know it's the first wave that they've gotten control of but they're starting to prepare for what's going to happen in the fall. I think that's where public health officials have the most trepidation as we let down our guard for the summer. Things a little better and then the fall risks being much much worse part of this is about and this is what I raised with with the mayor of Montreal the not impatience but the push from citizens to get back to normal people want things to start to reopen even The Premier of Ontario who? We talked about this last week. Said that he put out a roadmap not a calendar is now talking about a calendar and talking about opening some things up perhaps by the May weekend what do you see as the big challenge to reopening safely not just in individual jurisdictions but but across the country the big challenges. There's so much known about this virus. We still don't know how many carriers are out there with symptoms so he symptomatic people. Will this explode? If we open up our stores people start to interacting more. We just don't know so we're watching other jurisdictions and I think to me the biggest issue is we do have to go slowly. Everyone agrees on that but the problem is what happens if we do. Have a another big resurgence. I think it becomes more and more difficulty to shut down again and I think that's why everyone's hesitating they won't they don't WanNa have to make that call and and backpedal part of that hesitating is trying to figure out whether people should stay inside or go outside. We're talking about Dr. Bonnie Henry have listened to what she said about getting inside the risk. That somebody who is sick is spreading this virus from coughing or sneezing side and you walk by them very quickly even if it is within six feet that risk is is negligible. We you know that's not the way. This virus is mostly transmitted. So please go outside gold side with your family but dude in a way that maintains that distance rate now. And don't go vote if you're feeling sick yourself card. To what extent do you think Canadians are hearing that message? Go outside consistently across this country where I don't think they're hearing it consistently. You know the messages go upside but don't congregate and I think that's been the message all along but we spent. We spent two months scaring the Dickens out of people saying you know there's this pandemic biggest thing that's happened in a century and now it's it's hard to it's a lot harder to unskilled people than to scare them so a lot of people have heard this message. This is dangerous so they can't do anything but it's been safe all along to go outside the safest place to be outside. It's hard to transfer harder to transmit so long as you keep your distance. You know this is a an illness you're GONNA get if you're in close confines with someone who sick If you're touching surfaces going outside is the best place to be honestly you wrote a column about this talking about how we need to change that message. What do you make of the decision in the city of Toronto to Close High Park? This is so that people won't go and look at at The Cherry blossoms returned one part of this four hundred Acre Park but the entire park has been closed down. Yeah so it's one of those things that you don't want people to congregate but you do want them to get out. So I I think you have to err on the side of trusting people as you know. I live in Montreal. Montreal has kept his parks open on the weekend. The parks were full of people but ninety nine percent of people were respecting. The recommendations. People were staying apart Enjoying this etc I. I don't see why Toronto can't do that to me. It's A. It's a shame that such a beautiful park that we really need these days. Close the other part of it is what was talking about the idea that you create a more equal space on streets by closing some lanes and this has been tried in some cities other cities like the city of Toronto. Perhaps more reluctant to do this. Why is that the right thing to to open up some of the streets so that if people are going to go out they have more space? Well I've been hammering away at the swing for awhile that you don't. There's not too many people out there too little space for the people who are so. We have to create spaces you know. Most of our even sitting is cars. It's designed for cars It's a time where people are coming into cities to work etc. We have to open up. The streets Some cities Vancouver. Calgary have been Montreal. Been much better but this closed streets let people walk on them six feet apart or two meters apart and that's much better for everyone mental and physical health and much better use of states. What's the resistant? What's what's the resistance to that you talked about the idea of trusting people is that what's at the heart of this that some cities perhaps just don't trust the citizens to do the right thing. I Yeah I think again. There's a fear of congregating which I don't think has played out in any of these places I think the real fear is From cities is people. Want to go back. I think they're punks at that very well. People are liking this getting out in a boat and having some streets closed This is very popular and I think there's a movement around the world to take advantage of this crisis to say maybe we should do our cities a little differently. Maybe some of these street sweet close temporarily. We should close permanently. This whole whole car based culture. Maybe that's one of the things that will change out of this new normal. Your Health Call Mr Not urban design columnist but DC. A connection between the two. Well it's absolutely you know. It's a health issue our physical environment. It's one of the most important determinants of health if you live in a place where there's green where you can walk You know who has the lowest rate of obesity in the country Montreal because people walk more? Here there's a direct connection between our health and our physical environment that we we've neglected for far too long. What are we learning about? The we've been talking about this on the program. The impact that this is all having on our mental health there was a survey done by Angus. Reid saying that. Fifty percent of those surveyed said that they had felt that their mental health. To head declined. A smaller percentage said that if the client severely what are we learning about you know being told to stay home and the effect that's having on on our mental health. I think there's no question it's stressful. It's demanding I think we have to be careful about saying this is going to result in mental illness. You know we have this problem in modern society that we pathology is all these normal emotions. So it's normal to be stressed to be worried to have economic worries but he doesn't mean we're GONNA end up depressed. In institutionalize people are very very resilient in incredibly difficult circumstances. And I think There's going to be another challenge is to change the way we talk and behave to adjust to. This is going to be more okay to talk about our stress to not go into work because I'm having a bad corona virus day. I can't take it today of these mental health days. Maybe it will be an opportunity to talk more openly about our feeling can ask you about work. I'm in the Office. And there's a handful of us who are here. Many many many more people are working from home. What do you think the transition back to? The office will look like in the weeks ahead..

"Of Montreal Valerie Plant. She has an exclusive seat on a global task. Force here what she's doing to help cities bounce back from the virus and we'll hear from health reporter. Andre Picard making the case to go outside in the midst of the pandemic. That's ninety seconds. I'm Ed Galloway. And this is the current. Hi I'm Matt Galloway. You're listening to the current big cities across this planet have been hammered by the corona virus populated. They have crowded public transit systems packed shops and busy streets traits that have greatly contributed to mortality rates and the crippling of businesses and already leaders are weighing. How these metropolises can recover to do that. Eleven mayors from around the world have been appointed to a working group called C Forty Mares Covert Nineteen recovery taskforce. Valerie plant is the only Canadian named to that Task Force. She is the mayor of Montreal. That's the epicenter of this pandemic in Canada plant. Good Morning Good Morning why is it that Montreal is having such a hard time bringing down the number of infections a wall? Of course I'm not a specialist here but What we're seeing is that Well well the one of the reason that was brought up to us is The fact that We had our our our spring break at the beginning where For example if I compare with my my colleagues and Ontario They were able to shut down the the province and all the activities before spring break but and also we have a lot of economic and cultural activities between The city of New York and Montreal. It's very yeah we're really closely connected and so there were also a lot of case Brought in that being said. I'm not an expert but we're definitely dealing with a difficult situation with our elders as well so We're we're working really hard to To to go through this and to minimize the curve because it's It's still a big issue in Canada and especially Montreal. In the meantime people are trying to figure out what happens and when things can start to resume some sense of normality yesterday. The premiere of your province Francois Ago announced the reopening of businesses in Montreal would be delayed by a week to the eighteenth of May have listened to why he thought that's the right decision. We want to reopen stores in Montreal. But we know that if we reopen and when will reopen stores will probably have more cases in our UH spitaels so right now distribution is under control with the we It's manage with the number of people that we have right now continuing to stay at home but if we open a bit we need to have a margin and we don't see this margin today. Tolerate plant is delaying reopening the right decision. Oh yeah absolutely. Oh reopening or delaying delaying the reopen. So for me. The fact that we There's an extra week Absolutely makes sense Here in Montreal though like the premier said the the situation is under control but it's fragile and for me Even though I'm you know like everybody else we we're looking for opening some economic sectors but it cannot be done Over publix had the population's health and so whatever time is needed. I'm totally willing to wait. How much pressure are you under to Reopen Society? It just wonder whether you're population is willing to stay patient. Well that is a very good question. I think that we can see There's a lot of people would say especially parents and elders. That are Really preoccupied by Sorry by opening schools and opening some economic sectors where for businesses and and people that are having a struggling right now. Of course. They're they're they`re. They're interested into opening their businesses. But so it is. It is a balanced to find and for me what is important just to definitely follow the public health authorities and and I will. That's been my number one priority since the beginning and I will continue to do so so if there's any chances that you know it's not a good idea to reopen Some sectors and Michelle. I will be the first to say. Let's wait you mentioned schools. The elementary schools in Montreal are set to open on the nineteenth of May according to this provincial directive. If your children were elementary school age would you send them back to school now? I think that I would. I'm not sure I would. I would do it right the beginning. Because there's huge challenges right now around like Finding their the the the right number of people because we need to double and triple the number of Schoolteachers and And Guardian as well because the classes will be smaller so I would probably wait a while but I can definitely see the impact. The psychological impact on on on kids and I can talk about my kids of not having the possibility socialize but again many of those question I think the premier would be in such a better position than me to explain because those decisions were made by the National Public Health Authorities and the government of Quebec but again We will follow the recommendation being put in place by public authorities. We've spoken with parents and we've spoken with with educators as well and there's a real sense of anxiety around the idea of of the timing of this and people again I I understand that they are desperate to get back to normal but they wonder whether this is too soon if there are hundreds of new cases in the province every day. A thousand cases This past weekend whether this sort of stuff is just premature. We just need to wait. Well I'm at the same place as you I'm I'm the UH being the mayor of the biggest city in March and in Quebec I do receive a lot of messages. Actually where the only level of governmen that still answers through emails and and social media all the questions so I'm getting tons and tons of question and we're trying to be reassured Reassuring to everybody having the knowledge and you know following the orders that are coming from above us but at the same time The fact that the everything is being decided Through the public health authorities to me is reassuring. This is where we are trying to put everything together as a city because the moment we reopened some sectors in schools it also means that we need to work on the The social another social space but were public spaces streets sidewalks intersection to make sure that we can keep the social the the sensing. That'd be so important right now. You've talked about keeping parks open and you've said that it's important for people in Montreal to keep an open mind that there are many people in this city who don't have a backyard. They don't have a balcony and so you have kept parks open. Tell me more about that. And why you've done that why you've created more space on the streets in the plateau for example so that people can be out and not have to worry about being close to each other so since the beginning almost at the beginning we we did decided to keep the park open though I have to say. We close the dogs parks or playgrounds for kids. Like all the places that the dissension Between the social thing is to keep and so because we're a big city we realize that even though people making lots of efforts to keep the two meters while they're going for the grocery store the pharmacy or just taking bit of fresh air. They're having trouble to to keep the distance. So while the parks are being are still we also started to create a sanitary corridors in some of the business treats so if you go to the grocery store and you're waiting in line then there's more space we've taking a parking space out of those treats To Really Support the Social distancing and now. We're moving a bit more. Were moving forward with creating what we call family and active treats which are shared streets where those are local ones local streets where It's your equal. Let's put it this way. Whatever you're driving your car for local reasons or your pedestrian they're a cyclist everybody's equal on those streets. And so we're going to be creating a lot of those in the coming days and weeks to really support at the social distancing. That is very important. Do you see this as an opportunity. You use the phrase your equal when it's which is interesting in terms of whether you're walking or riding a bike or driving a car. Do you see this as an opportunity to rethink. What our streets. Inner cities could look like after. This is done Yeah and I think that a lot of people have realized how much space cars are taking. And I'm not judging you that the use of cars and and it that's not the point but people are realizing that when you're walking in the city you have very limited space comparing two cars and so I find a great time to show what will be possible so even downtown and in many areas that many borrows will be closing streets to do full pedestrians area especially on the commercial streets. And we'll be creating big corridors. We will be taking some space out of the for the cars to give more space for cyclists. So I think it's an opportunity and we'll see how it goes. There's less cars writing right now and But I think it's time to to rethink of how we share. We share the public Public space outside. This is a health crisis. It's also a financial crisis and it's a financial crisis for cities across this country and around the world. How badly hit will the economy of of Montreal be out of this? It's huge it's huge and we're trying to just stay positive and we're trying to put all the efforts to keep the the budget Balanced because in we have a responsibility at the municipal level. You need to have a balanced budget It's the only order of government where you cannot have a deficit and so we're right right now. We're challenging with. How are we going to keep our employees as much as possible in much? Twenty eight Taliban people working for the city throughout the boroughs. And it's also. How do we keep on giving The services that people needs So and and the fact that in cities we depend on the On the tax we impose every year on on houses. It's quite limited. We don't have lots of sources of revenue so it is very tricky problem and especially in big cities where there's a transportation system to support. We have lost a lot of people like they're not taking it so a lot of revenues as well so we've been asking the big cities Canada been asking the government of the federal government to support. It's up to about ten millions and it would be based on the population but also on the The number of How could I say the ridership That would definitely support big cities Montreal Toronto Vancouver and all the big city. This is a global crisis and as I mentioned. You're the only Canadian on this International Task Force of mayors looking at how we get out of this..

"I was thinking completely different. I was thinking because people get them for bait dogs in their they're in criminal enterprises. So that if you get one, they background you to make sure that you can't get one. That's what I thought. I, I was thinking of the now. Good intention. Oh, no. This was just a blanket, you're well, I dunno. I see now it's like a prejudice towards someone who has that type dog towards the dog. But I was thinking it was more towards someone who may be entering criminal enterprises. As most people, you probably couldn't do that. He though think this is kinda you can't do that here with the laws. You can't just say, oh, you still find pit bulls. We're gonna do a criminal background check on you before you can. Have this dog? We talked to our Canadian people about this. Well anyway, but this is the good news. So mad Valerie plant and her political party project. Montreal which when a major of city council seats in November two thousand seventeen that was amuse municipal election made it a campaign promise to repeal that ban. According to the Canadian broadcast corporation, it emerged as a key election issue prior to the election. Representatives of the party promised. It would revisit the city's animal control plan and shift the focus to responsible dog ownership, rather than banning Centene braids. The ban was lifted in December of last year. The Bilo was written by an outpouring of public concern following the tragic death of Christine Venise, who was fatally attacked in by neighbor's dog in June two thousand sixteen, although the elements of the bylaw targeting pit bulls has been repealed. Montreal still has restrictions on dogs deemed dangerous to public safety. We've pertain equally too old dogs, regardless of braid. I not to say about this anyway, newly elected city councillor. Craig soul solve solve it looks like suave abor. It's not so upset that targeting just one breed created a false sense of security, because science shows there is no type of dog that is intrinsically motivated than all others old, dogs dangerous and the bigger the dog. The mold by could her. That's a weird statement. He writes in one respect, which is the cheese. No science to prove that any breed is born inherently aggressive. But yes, old dogs, potentially can bite. Potential. Yeah. It's a fear protection response. So he was incorrect in that these criteria. And of course, you know, big dog big, big Joe's big teeth big bite. Is going to be a big play. Almost immediately after the ban went into effect. The Montreal SPCA filed a lawsuit against the city, arguing that the new provisions run counter to the article eight nine eight point one of the civil code of Quebec, which grants animals. The status of sentient beings. If we didn't know about that. Kennedy have done. Yes. Right. The organization also charged that the definition of pit bull in the rule which included three distinct breeds mixed thereof and any dog with the characters of the breeds was too vague yet because there is no pit bull. I'm curious as to where that came from. We don't call them people's in England anyway. They call them Staffordshire terrier, the fighting pit always not what it is. Okay. Why did I not know this? But here's the interesting thing about this is I mean, I've always, my opinion I wrote to them as well even though I'm not in Canada because. You've got people making laws where they don't bring experts and it's a dangerous situation on many, many levels, and people will literally moving out of the area when this Spencer place, you know, because I knew rescues said, send them to the states will take the dogs in rescue, and people who had these dogs as pets. They had family members outside of that ban by Naria take that dogs. So the dogs would not get euthanized because he's what they were going to do. They were going to the Nys those dogs. Particularly in the shelters. Saying euthanize it's not. It's killing euthanize Asia is for an animal, you cannot say who cannot save it. It is so sick. It is civilian nothing can be done. That's when you is Asia comes in euthanize Asia is not for healthy animals. So that just call it what it is you just killing him you just killing them. And it never Ritz a problem trust may, killing is not the way out of problem with animals. A common criticism breed specific legislation. Is that trying to determine a dog's breed based on appearance is inherently problematic? And that the category of pit bull itself. Is it self up jury and overly broad empirical data confirms that not only average citizens, but even animal kept professionals can identify breeze by parents, given this big big you Itea brief specific legislation is almost impossible to enforce in Femina. We by the way in Nevada are a. Breed specific legislation. Free State, you cannot discriminate discriminate against any breed, just so you know, that however, however apartment buildings and still discriminate by size to see so stupid. It's just again, an educated critics of. No. As in the US jurisdiction in Canada. They have not taken a unified approach to the issue breeze. Specific legislation. Neighboring province Ontario as had abandoned people since two thousand five, which was held by the interior coat of appeals in two thousand nine and that decision was cited by the Quebec court of appeal in December two thousand sixteen ruling that, that supported the now defunct Montreal ban. However, within Antero Ottawa. They've been vocal about not enforcing the ban. The city of Winnipeg breed ban in one thousand nine hundred eighty and the city of Edmonton repealed its ban in two thousand twelve preferring to vote preferring to focus on don't behavior rather than even that breed Calgary. However, which does not have legislation has been called the gold standard in his approach to the problem of dangerous dogs, which is still. That's just a weird statement. Montreal's, new administration suggested, it will emulate the Calgary model which focuses on owner education as a key element to preventing dog attacks and ensuring public safety Calgary, as some of the strictest animal regulations in North America member not to move Calgary there, have defines. Oh, no, no, no. This is a good thing, this, this is a good thing. They have hefty fines owners that don't control the dogs and strict rules about licensing and harnessing. That's good. So if you are a Canadian. You need to go to Calgary. Money raised through licensing is dedicated to educational campaigns owners. I love that. And the most important part of the education campaign is they, they feel is that part of it in Calgary compliance is very high onus pets and Calgary have been incentivized to participate love that the Montreal SPCA with lobbied against the municipal ban on several fronts, including the aforementioned lawsuit is currently sponsoring a petition to block province-wide legislation that would give the Quebec government authorized to bounce Pacific operates. The organization calls Bill, one to eight which was proposed in April two thousand seventeen costly unfair ineffective in reducing the risk of severity of dog bites along with petition the SPCA has posted alternative solutions to address the public safety issues of aggressive dogs on his website. The website is safer kinda communities dot com. The swift repeal of this legislation points to the power citizens have when using the voices at the ballot box Alana. Levine, who is the director of animal advocacy at the Montreal SPCA said we do believe that part of why project Montreal was elected. Is that commitment important animal welfare issues? I'm impressed. I'm so impressed. Because we've had some blows recently in Nevada with an highly on educating, and no reason to be uneducated councilman and. Commissioner's making decisions about animals that they have no experience, no education. No signs, didn't bring any experts and did not read anything that myself and other animal advocates and experts and into them did not read an links to not watch any documentaries, did not bring an any professional patronizing politicians. Yeah. That's exactly exactly what happened and through that they ended up repealing bamboo having put in place, which would have been this week where you could not buy puppies from stores because they're supplied by puppy mills, which are abuse mills, basically, to describe it, and therefore, more animals will suffer from that decision, shocking outrageous, irresponsible, had been so fired that week. I almost lost my mind and so many, many other people because when it comes down to animal welfare, it's not hard stand up for animals. It's so easy. It's. It's real easy. So I never understand why some of these things happen. And how can you be in a position not do due diligence, and Chile read and bring in experts and make a very informed decision on that? It was very, very bad. So, but it's not that we're going to bring that, that, that Bill back. It's not it's not dead. We're going to put our energies back into it again. And get the citizens on board who care about these animal issues. Well, Jim, it's bad. It's been quite the show this week, we've covered lots and lots of stuff for everybody. I will put links up on Facebook page so you don't have to go looking for these stories, and, and the information and we've covered protecting your dog's polls in the wintertime, we've covered you lifting of the pit bull man in Canada, which is fantastic.

"People. Coach. Hi everyone. Welcome back. Okay. We're going to talk about v free fair free. Certificates. Shen is gathering a lot of speed, which is a wonderful thing, vetinarians vet techs groomers, even some dog, trainers guessing, certified on the fear freeze to fixations make vet visits and grooming fall, less stressful in particular for cats. Think about this. How many time harder for cats and dogs ago? The girl were from I will say from my experience from people, I talked to, and veterinary as I speak to cats have a very, very hard time being transported to them where they're always in carriers. Well, L pets will, yeah. Yeah. Yeah. How wouldn't count you go? The vet would you go put a dog under our a leash, though, haven't you? Puma that I've been seeing that's been what Puma that people have been shown on Facebook, that there's a like a undersized Puma that can't be released into the wild that someone has, and they treat it like a dog and it goes to obedience class. I saw that. Why would they get you remember? It's kind of unclear. But it's like they say it's thirty percent under-sized, and it can't be released to the wild, and they have a harness on it like a dog, and it goes to obedience class, but I'm looking at that thing going that Bouma would tear up every dog in that room. His thing. They can train them really animals into the wild. That's it. They can and they do. So. When people say they can't they do it has to be done with the right. The, you know, the right people who teach them how to fend for themselves. That's what they do. But yeah, if you if you didn't you couldn't do it if you've just been doing everything full, the Puma, as we say, what you don't call it a Puma Puma could appeal. Nobody. England. They had a military aircraft helicopter called the Puma not the Huma appeal was the telly now. So wrong knew he was going to say that this shows ridiculous this week. Right. So. Is the thing. And I hear all the time. Oh, gosh. You're gonna take my cats to the vet. Get them in the crate. My cats freaking out losing their minds and is just stressful for everybody involved. But there are some things that you can do to lessen the stress reverie one has involved from, from the person who's taking the cat to that, you'll veterinarian. No, the vet tech. And this is what the fear free certificates is all about dot de mossy. Becker think is on the put this together, which was great. And the no, you probably listening. Zane. Surely, that's not to handle pets when they come in and I, I will say this, we've all probably been in a situation where you go. I don't like how they handled my dog. Oh, I don't like how why did they do that? Mytalk didn't like that. The way they were handled. And so this is what he felt was a big gap in, in the handling of animals and came up with this. And for example, is one of the things. So a cat in particular. To, to lessen all this stress is you can train, your cat to go in the crate leading up days leading up to the actual appointment itself. The long lead up the mall of unity. You've got to get your cat. We'll comfortable in the crate, because, as you know, with any kind of training with its dogs cats. It's all about positive reinforcement dominance training is gone. It's gone. It's, it's all cane. He should not be doing it. I want to laugh and say what you haven't picked up a red anything new in what. Twenty five years, you still teaching in this dominance way. But it's all about positive reinforcement positive reinforcement doesn't mean people seem to think it's some Harry fairy you just let them do whatever they want and get away with it. And no think it's always just by giving a bunch of traits such lane. Not it's about a positive experience, because we all do well in the positive experience. Don't like so this is what's, what is based on? And so, for example, he is one of the things that you can do, and you would take you create believe in your living room door open, and put some tempting stuff inside toy catnip. There's a blanket in the some traits. And you just let your cat freely go in and out same with the dog can get lymph really go in and out. They get used to going in. A positive association with the crates, it self the longer, you can do that the best. The result is going to be you can then, for example, just, you know, once you can get your cap in the and you just close the door. You just leave it there for a few minutes. He let them out. You give them a little trait. Lots of praise again another positive association. And so you do this in steps, and eventually, you get to close the dole, maybe lift up the carrier walk around the room for a minute, puts it back down door open. Lots of praise then of as you go to work, you weights actually getting the crate in the car. So hearing in the car, not going anywhere in the until and then coming back in the house. Lots of law to work, you know what it's worth? Okay. Signing a lot of that to you. That's fine. Because I would do that. I would totally do that. Okay. Because here's the thing. I seen friends that go. I'm just so stressed out of the vet just con- even practice taking your cat to the vet. You'll have to practice and you'll pets the vet. That's what you do, and eventually, you'll get in the car drive five minutes, you'll come back, and then the ultimate is that you can get to the veterans little boy gets excited to get in the car. But somehow he knows when we're heading to the vet. They recognized by we thing. And so, so it's it's a little bit of time at some stops, but it's worth, it's worth it, but I do recommend and I am not paid by them is by sleepy pod. Sleepy pod have one of the only crush test approved carriers pet carriers in the United States. We've gone over that a million times they have the only approved. One of the only approved pet Hoeness's also and the crush test at the same rate, they crushed as for a baby carry baby seats that's miles an hour. So is important that you do have some say, but why recommending the sleepy pod? Carrier is. It's a round carrier with a dome on the top. It's mash on the top zip through the center of it, and the whole top unzips off. It's three and one is a carrier it's a seat. It's a bet. So the great thing is about that when it comes to fear free training as you take the dome of completely. You've got your bed does the bed in your house. It's something that familiar with their associated with being at home being comfortable. It says, and that's a brilliant way to train them. Because all you're doing that taking them in the bed into your call enough to the vet their absolutely fantastic. They are about one hundred eighty dollars with every penny. Very well mood, high quality materials like Kananskis on the material that you cannot believe. And so, you know, think about those kinds of things because once you once you got pets in the Kelly wanted to be safe as well. But that's for me. I think a perfect product to practice with, because it is that bad. And then eventually the dome goes on Johm comes off, let's positive, it's the old around it a very positive association. So that's basically the premise of it. That's one example of how they use it. You veterinarians practice something quite different, which is. There's a there's some petting, you know, you know, getting to know you pet once they get. No, let's do that. It's like I'm on the table. Here we go. Gary for. But so this is this is something you what, with your veterinarian, sometimes they'll vote with you and say, you know, maybe we need to give your pet some kind of a sedative prior to getting in the car as well as the need extra aid, or maybe CBD oil or something like that. But actually about to what with you, as for tips look for who's fear free, seventy five, but there are lots of people that guessing such as well as vet, which is groomers. They handle your pets all the time. And you know, dog trainers and pet taxis. You know, people have to pick them up and, you know, take him today care or whatever it's I think it's a very important thing. He's lots of speed is a great thing to be out there to make things easier for you and your pets molasses. Thank the pit bull. Bam. One of them was lifted what's so lovely friends over at the animal legal defense fund in California. It's a huge organization of attorneys who represent animals, and they have been doing. So since. Late seventies early eighties. I want to say and they've represent many, many, many animals usually in abusive situations and you know situation with being exploited things, I see, well, circuses and of, of Simla kind of situations, they also help with. Pushing bills and laws together, supporting them language those kinds of things brilliant, Oganization. We've had Steven wells on the show before. And one of the best interviews we ever did. I highly recommend supporting them if you're in the legal field and you want to help animals that the people you would look to if you're thinking of going into legal field and would like to pay your love of animals with the legal field that the people you need to look towards. They book chapters all over the country, the so, so impressive. Anyway, they put out some great news this week. Montreal's, new math has lifted the city's sweeping ban on pit bulls and fifty months ago, we were just outraged over this. It was a controversial restriction that went into place, went into effect, the animal control Bilo. Mid illegal to adopt all otherwise client, pit bull with institute limits and required any pit bulls. Grandfather fathered in to be muzzled in public captain unleash no longer than four feet in order to be grandfathered in and Montreal. Pit bull on his required to purchase a special permit and a criminal background check. Which was just outrageous. We means amazing, well, no, they may compress criminal background checks. Why do you feel that you should pass a criminal background? Check a dog. I don't know. I mean no justification. Because to make sure that you're not a criminal and you're not going to be abusive or no there's nothing to do with a blanket. You've got a pit bull, which is real. No. He's not a breeze. Okay. I, I was thinking completely different. I was thinking completely different. I was thinking because people get them for dogs in their they're in criminal enterprises. So that if you get one, they background you to make sure that you can't get one. That's what I thought. I was thinking of the now. Good intention. Oh, no. This was just a blanket, you're well, I dunno. I see now it's like a prejudice towards someone who has that type dog just towards the dog. But I was thinking it was more towards someone who may be entering criminal enterprises. Most people you probably couldn't do that. He VO think this is kinda you couldn't do that here with the laws, you can't just say, oh, you still find pit bulls. So we're going to do criminal background. Check on you before you can have this dog. We talk to our Canadian people about this. Well anyway, but this is the good news. So mad Valerie plant and her political policy project. Montreal which when a major of city council seats in November two thousand seventeen and that was amused. Municipal election made it a campaign promise to repeal that bam. The Cording to the Canadian broadcast corporation, it emerged as a key election issue prior to the election. Representatives of the party promised.

But that's a to me. I think. Perfect product to practice with because it is bad. And then eventually goes on dome comes off, let's positive, it's the old around it in a very positive association. So that's basically the premise of it. That's one example of how they use it. You veterinarians practice something quite different, which is, there's some patching. And some, you know. You know, getting to know your pet once they get that. No, that's do that. It's like I'm on the table. Here we go, Gary. But so this is this is something you what, with your veterinarian on. Sometimes they'll vote with you, and say, you know, maybe we need to give your pet some kind of a sedative prior to getting in the car is while they need extra aid, or maybe CBD oil or something like that. But actually about to what with you S for, for tips look for who's fear free certified, but there are lots of people that get such as well as vets, which is groomers. They Handley Petzold and time. And, you know, dog trainers, and taxis, people have to pick them up and take him today. Care, whatever it's a very important thing governor, lots of speed is a great thing to be out the to make things easier for you and your pets Rommel's think, hey, the pit bull. Bam. One of them was lifted so lovely friends over at the animal legal defense fund in California. It's a huge organization of attorneys who represent and they have been doing. So since. Seventies early eighties. I want to say and they've represent many, many, many animals usually in abusive situations and you know situation with being exploited things I see well so Casses and of, of Simla kind of situations, they also help with. Pushing bills and laws together, supporting them language those kinds of things brilliant, Oganization. We've had Steven wells on the show before. And one of the best interviews we ever did. I highly recommend supporting them if you're in the legal field and you want to help animals that the people you would look to if you're thinking of going into legal field and would like to pay your love of animals with the legal field that the people you need to look towards chapters all over the country, the so, so impressive. Well anyway, they put out some great news this week. Montreal's, new math has lifted the city's sweeping ban on pit bulls and fifteen months ago, we were just outraged over this. It was a controversial restriction that went into place, went into effect, the animal control Bilo. Mid illegal to adopt all otherwise client, pit bull with institute limits and required. Any pit bulls. Grump father fathered in to be muzzled in public, captain unleash no longer than full feet in order to be grandfathered in and Mont. Montreal pit bull on his required to purchase a special permit and pass a criminal background check, which was just outrageous. We means amazing, well, no criminal background checks. Why do you feel that you should pass a criminal background? Check a dog. I don't know. I mean no justification. Because to make sure that you're not a criminal and you're not going to be abusive or no there's nothing to do with a blanket. You've got a pit bull. Which is we all know is not a breeze. Okay. I, I was thinking completely different. I was thinking completely different. I was thinking because people get them for bay dogs in their they're in criminal enterprises. So that if you get one, they background you to make sure that you can't get one. That's what I thought. I was thinking of the now. Good intention. Oh, no. This was just a blanket, you're well, I dunno. I see now it's like a prejudice towards someone who has that type dog towards the dog. But I was thinking it was more towards someone who may be entering criminal enterprises. I think most people you probably couldn't do that. He though think this is kinda you couldn't do that here with the laws, you can't just say, oh, you must still find pit bulls. So we're gonna do criminal background check on you before you can have this, Doug. We talk to our Canadian people about this. Well anyway, but this is the good news.

"Culture. Hi everyone. Welcome back. Okay. We're going to about fifty free fair free. Certificates. Shen is gathering a lot of speed which is a wonderful thing that's an area NHS vet techs groomers, even some dog, trainers guessing, certified on the fear freeze to fixations make vet visits and grooming fall, less stressful in particular for cats. Think about this. How many time harder for cats and dogs ago? The girl were from I will say from my experience from people, I talked to in veterinary SP, two cats, have very, very hard time being transported to the vet. That's where they're always in carriers. Well, L pets. Well, yeah, yeah. Yeah. Wouldn't count your, we'll go the vet. Would you go put a dog under underarm a leash, though? Haven't you? Puma that I've been seeing that's been what Puma that people have been shown on Facebook, that there's like a undersized Puma that can't be released into the wild that someone has, and they treat it like a dog and it goes to obedience class. I saw that why what did they get you remember? I it's kind of unclear but it's like they say it's thirty percent under-sized, and it can't be released to the wild, and they have a harness on it like a dog, and it goes to obedience class, but I'm looking at that thing going that Bouma would tear up every dog in that room. His thing. They can train them. Release animals into the wild. That's it. They can and they do. So. When people say they can't they do it has to be done with the right. The, you know, the right people who teach them how to fend for themselves. That's what they do. But yeah, if you if you didn't you couldn't do it if you've just been doing everything full, the Puma, as we say, what you don't call it a Puma Puma. Call appeal. Yes. Nobody. England. They had a military aircraft helicopter called the Puma not the Huma. Telly now. So wrong knew it was going to say that this show is ridiculous this week. Right. So here's the thing. I hear all the time. Oh, go to go to the vet. Get them in the crate. My cats freaking out losing their minds and it's just stressful for everybody involved. But there are some things that you can do to lessen the stress for everyone involved from, from the person who's taking the cat to that you'll veterinary. No, the vet tech and this is what the fear free certificates is all about Dr Motti Becker, I think is on the put this together, which was great. And then no, you probably listening. Zane. But surely, that's know how to handle pets when they come in and I, I will say this, we've all probably been in a situation where I don't like how they handled my dog. Oh, I don't like how why did they do that? My dog didn't like that the way they were handled. And so this is what he felt was a big gap in, in the handling of animals and came up with this. And for example, is one of the things. So a cat in particular. To, to lessen all this stress is you can train, your cat to go in the crate leading up days leading up to the actual appointment itself. The long lead up the mall opportunity. You've got to get your cat. We'll comfortable in the crate, because, as you know, with any kind of training with its dogs cats. It's all about positive reinforcement dominance training is gone. It's gone. It's, it's a cane, he should not be doing it. I want to laugh and say what you haven't picked up a red anything new in what. Twenty five years, you still teaching in this dominance way. But it's all about positive reinforcement positive reinforcement doesn't mean people seem to think it's some kind of Harry ferry you just let them do whatever they want and get away with it. And so no think it's always just by giving a bunch of traits. Such Lee, not it's about a positive experience, because we all do well in the positive experience. Don't like so this is what what is based on? And so, for example, he is one of the things that you can do, and you would take you create live in your living room door open and put some tempting stuff inside. It's a toy catnip. There's a blanket in the some traits. And you just let your cat freely. Go in and out. Same with the and lymph really go in and out they get used to going in. A positive association with the credit self the longer you can do that. The better the result is going to be you can then, for example, just, you know, once you can get your cap in the and you just close the door. You just leave it there for few minutes. He let them out. You give them a trait. Lots of praise again another positive association. And so you do this in steps, and eventually, you get to close the dole, maybe lift up the caria walk around the room for a minute. Put it back down door open lots of praise then of going to work you actually getting the crate in the car. So hearing in the car, not going anywhere on the continental and then come back in the house. Lots of with law to work. You know what it's worth? Signing a lot of that to you. That's fine because I would do that. I know I would totally do that. Okay. Because here's the thing I seen friends that go. I'm just so stressed out Tim accounts of the vet, just con- even practice taking your cat to the vet. You'll have to practice take and you'll pets the vet. That's what you do, and eventually, you'll get in the car drive five minutes, you'll come back, and then the ultimate is that you can get to the vessel. Little boy gets excited to get in the car. But somehow he knows when we're heading to the vet. They recognized by we thing. And so, so it's a little bit of time at some stops, but it's worth, it's worth it. But I do recommend and I am not paid by them is by sleepy pod. Sleepy pod have one of the only crush test approved carriers pet carriers in the United States. We've gone over that a million times they have the only approved. One of the only approved pet harnesses also. And the crush test at the same rate, they crushed as for a baby carry babysits touch miles an hour. So is important that you do have some say, but why am recommending the sleepy pod? Carrier is. It's a round carrier with a dome on the top. It's mash on the top zip through the center of it, and the whole top unzips off. It's three and one is a carrier. It's a seat. It it's a bet. So the great thing is about that when it comes to free training as you take the dome of completely. You've got your bed does the bed in your house. It's something that familiar with their associated with being at home being comfortable. It says, and that's a brilliant way to train them because all you're doing is taking them in the bed into your call enough to the vet their absolutely fantastic. They are about one hundred eighty dollars with every penny, very well mood, high quality materials like Kananskis material that you cannot believe, and so, you know, think about those kinds of things because once you once you go pets in the Kelly wanted to be safe as well. But that's for me. I think. Perfect product to practice with, because it is that bad. And then eventually goes on Joan comes off, let's positive. It's all around in a very positive association so that's basically the premise of it. That's one example of how they use it. You veterinarians practice something quite different, which is there's some petting, you know, you know, getting to know you pet once they get that, and all that, Stu, that it's like I'm on the table. Here we go, Gary. But so this is this is something you what, with your veterinarian on. Sometimes they'll vote with you, and say, you know, maybe we need to give your pet some kind of a sedative prior to getting in the car while if they need the extra aid, or maybe CBD oil of something like that. But actually about to what with you ask for tips, look for who's fear free certified. But there are lots of people that getting such as well as that which is grooming. They handle your pets over time. And you know, dog trainers, and taxis, you know, people have to pick them up and you know, take him today. Care. Whatever it's I think it's a very important thing as governor lots of speed is a great thing to be out there to make things easier for you and your pets. Rommel's molasses thing. The pit bull. Bam.

We're gonna do at criminal background check on you before you can have this dog. We talked to our Canadian people about this. Well, anyway, but this is the good news so mad Valerie plant and her political party project. Montreal which when a major of city council seats in November two thousand seventeen then that was amused. Municipal election. Made it a campaign promise to repeal that ban of according to the Canadian broadcast corporation it emerged as a key election issue prior to the election representatives of the party promised. It would revisit the city's animal control plan and shift the focus to responsible. Doug ownership rather than banning sit and braids the ban was lifted in December of last year. The bylaw was written by an outpouring of public concern. Following the tragic death of Christine Vadnais said who was fatally attacked in about your neighbor's dog in June two thousand sixteen although the elements of the bylaw targeting pit bulls has been repealed. Montreal still has restrictions on dogs deemed dangerous to public safety. We've pertain equally to old dogs, regardless of braid. I have to say about this. Anyway, newly elected city councillor Craig soul solve solve it. Looks like suave abor. It's not so upset that targeting. Just one breed created a false sense of security because science shows there is no type of dog that is intrinsically motivated than all of us old dogs are dangerous and the bigger the dog the mold by could hurt. That's a weird statement. He's right in one respect, which is the is. No science to prove that any breed is born inherently aggressive, but yes old dogs potentially can bite. Potential. Yeah. It's a fear protection response. So he was incorrect in that criterion of close, you know, big dog big big Joe's big teeth big bite. It's going to be a big play. Almost immediately after the ban went into effect. The Montreal SPCA filed the lawsuit against the city arguing that the new provisions run counter to article eight nine eight point one of the civil code of Quebec which grounds animals the status of sentient beings. That's a good. If I didn't know about that. The thing that code Kennedy done. Yes, right. The organization also charged that the definition of pit bull in the rule which included three distinct breeds mixed thereof and any dog with the characteristics of the breeds was too vague yet because there is no pit bull. I'm curious as to where that came from. We don't call them pit bulls in England anyway, because they call them Staffordshire terrier is fighting pit always that what it is. Okay. Why did I not know this? But here's the interesting thing about this is I mean, I've always my opinion, I wrote to them as well. Even though I'm not in Canada because you've got people making lows whether don't bring experts, and it's a dangerous situation on many many levels. And if people will literally moving out of the area when this place, you know, because I knew rescues said send them to the states will take the dogs in rescue and people who have these dogs as that pets. They had family members outside of that Ben Ben area take that dogs. So the dunks would not get euthanized because he's what they were going to do. They're going to the Nys those dogs, particularly in the shelters. Saying euthanize? It's not it's killing euthanize Asia is for an animal. You cannot say who cannot save it. It is so sick. It is civilian nothing can be done. That's when youth and is Asia comes in euthanize, Asia's not for healthy animals. And so that just call it. What it is you just killing him. You just killing them and eight never Ritz a problem. Trust may killing is not the way out of problem with animals, a common criticism of breed specific legislation is that trying to determine a dog's breed based on appearance is inherently problematic that the category of pit bull itself. Is it self Patry and overly broad empirical data confirms that not only average citizens, but even animal kept professionals can identify breeze by parents, given this big you Itea brief specific legislation is almost impossible to enforce in Femina. We by the way in Nevada are a. Breed specific legislation Free State, you cannot discriminate discriminate against any breed. Just so you know, that however, however apartment buildings and COO still discriminate by size to see so stupid. It's just again on educating critiques of. No as in the US jurisdiction in Canada.

However, which does not have solid Latian has been called the gold standard and his approach to the problem of dangerous dogs, which is still. That's just a weird statement Montreal's new administration suggested it will emulate the Calgary model, which focuses on owner education as a key element to preventing dog attacks and ensuring public safety Calgary as some of the strictest animal regulations in North America. Member not to move to Calgary there hefty fines. Oh, no, no, no. This is good thing. Good. Now, this is a good thing. They have hefty fines owners don't control the dogs and strict rules about licensing and harnessing, that's good. If you are a Canadian to Calgary. Money raised through licensing dedicates, its educational campaigns. Ona's why love that and the most important part of the education campaign is they feel is that positive it in Calgary compliance is very high onus of pets in Calgary have been incentivized to participate who will love that the Montreal SPCA which lobbied against the municipal ban on several fronts, including the aforementioned lawsuit is currently sponsoring a petition to block province-wide legislation. That would give the Quebec government. Authorities about specific dope rates the organization calls Bill one to eight which was proposed in April two thousand seventeen costly and ineffective in reducing the risk of severity of dog bites along with a petition the SPCA has posted alternative solutions to address the public safety issues of aggressive dogs on its website. The website is safer kinda communities dot com. The swift repeal of this legislation points to the power citizens have when using the voices of the ballot box Alana device. Gene, who is the director of animal advocacy, at the Montreal SPCA said we do believe that part of why project Montreal was elected is that commitment to important animal welfare issues. I'm impressed. I'm so impressed because we've had some blows recently Nevada with an highly on educating and no reason to be on educating councilman and commissioners making decisions about animals that they have no experience. No occasion. No science didn't bring in experts and did not read anything that myself and of animal advocates and experts and into them did not read any links. Not documentaries. Did not bring an any professional patronizing politicians. Yeah. That's exactly what happened and through that. They ended up. Repealing bamboo having put in place, which would have been this week where you could not buy puppies from stores because their supply puppy mills, which are a abuse mills, basically. To describe it and therefore more animals will suffer from that decision shocking. Outrageous, irresponsible had we so fired that week. I almost lost my mind, and so many many other people because when it comes down to animal welfare, it's not hot stand up for animals. It's so easy. It's real easy. So I never understand why some of these things happen, and how can you be in a position not do due diligence? And that Chile read and bring in experts and make a very informed decision on that. It was very very bad. So, but it's not dead wiccan bring that that that Bill back. It's not it's not dead.

"valerie plant" Discussed on Pet Life Radio

"I was thinking completely different. I was thinking because people get them for bay dogs and their they're in criminal enterprises. So that if you get one they background you to make sure that you can't get one. That's what I thought. I I was thinking of the now good intention. Oh, no. This was just a blanket. You're well. I dunno. I see now it's like a prejudice towards someone who has that type dog towards the dog. But I was thinking it was more towards someone who may be entering criminal enterprises. As most people you probably couldn't do that. He VO think this is kinda you couldn't do that here with the laws. You can't just say oh you still find pit bulls. We're gonna do a criminal background check on you before you can. Have this dog? We talked to our Canadian people about this. Well, anyway, but this is the good news so mad Valerie plant and her political party project. Montreal which when a major of city council seats in November two thousand seventeen than that was amuse municipal election. Made it a campaign promise to repeal that. Bam. The coding to the Canadian broadcast Coporation it emerged as a key election issue prior to the election representatives of the party promised. It would revisit the city's animal control plan and shift the focus to responsible dog ownership rather than banning certain breeds. The ban was lifted in December of last year. The Bilo was written by an outpouring of public concern following the tragic death of Christine Venise who was fatally attacked by neighbor's dog in June two thousand sixteen although the elements of the bylaw targeting pit bulls has been repealed. Montreal still has restrictions on dogs deemed dangerous to public safety. We've pertain equally too old dogs, regardless of braid. I have a lot to say about this. Anyway, newly elected city councillor Craig soul solve solve it. Looks like suave abor. It's not so upset that targeting. Just one breed created a false sense of security because science shows there is no type of dog that is intrinsically motivated than all others old dogs dangerous and the bigger the dog the mold by could hurt. That's a weird statement. He's right in one respect, which is the cheese. No science to prove that any breed is born inherently aggressive, but yes old dogs potentially can bite. Potential. Yeah. It's a fear protection response. So he was incorrect in that these criteria. And of course, you know, big dog big Joe's big teeth big bite. This is going to be a big play alight. Almost immediately after the ban went into effect. The Montreal SPCA filed a lawsuit against the city arguing that the new provisions run counter to the article eight nine eight point one of the civil code of Quebec, which grants animals the status of sentient beings. That's a good didn't know about that. Thing that code Kennedy done. Yes, right. The organization also charged that the definition of pit bull in the rule which included three distinct breeds mixed thereof and any dog with the cartridge breeds was too vague yet because there is no pit bull. I'm curious as to where that came from. We don't call them pit bulls in England anyway. They call them Staffordshire terrier on the fighting pit always not what it is. Okay. Why did I not know this? But here's the interesting thing about this is I mean, I've always my opinion, I wrote to them as well. Even though I'm not in Canada because. You've got people making laws whether don't bring experts, and it's a dangerous situation on many many levels and people will literally moving out of the area when this place, you know, because I knew rescues said send them to the states will take the dogs in rescue and people who have these dogs is that pets they had family members outside of that Ben Ben area take that dogs. So that dunks would not get euthanized because he's what they were going to do. They're going to use the Nys those dogs. Particularly in the shelters. Saying euthanize, it's not it's killing euthanize Asia is for an animal. You cannot save who cannot save it. It is so sick. It is civilian nothing can be done. That's when youth and is Asia comes in euthanize as not for healthy animals. And so that just call it. What it is you just killing you just killing them. And it never Ritz a problem. Trust may killing is not the way out of problem with animals, a common criticism of breed specific legislation is that trying to determine a dog's breed based on appearance isn't really problematic and that the category of pit bull is self is up jury and overly broad empirical data confirms that not only average citizens, but even animal kept professionals can identify breeze by parents, given this big big you Itea brief specific legislation is almost impossible to enforce in the Femina. We by the way in Nevada are a. Breed specific legislation Free State, you cannot discriminate discriminate against any breed. Just so you know, that however, however apartment buildings and still discriminate by size to see so stupid. It's just again an educated critics of. No as in the US jurisdiction in Canada. They have not taken unified approach the issue. Breeze specific legislation neighboring province Ontario as had abandoned people's since two thousand five which was held by the unserious coats of appeals in two thousand nine and that decision was cited by the Quebec court of appeal in December two thousand sixteen ruling that's the support of the now defunct Montreal ban. However within on -tario Ottawa. They've been vocal about not enforcing the ban. The city of Winnipeg and breed ban in one thousand nine hundred and the city of Edmonton repealed its ban in two thousand twelve preferring to vote preferring to focus on don't behavior rather than even that breed Calgary.

They have hefty fines owners who don't control the dogs and strict rules about licensing. And harnessing, that's good. If you are a Canadian you need to go to Calgary money raised through licensing dedicates, it's educational campaigns owners, I love that.

"valerie plant" Discussed on Monocle 24: The Urbanist

"Hello. And welcome to Monaco. Twenty four is the the show or about the cities we live in imagine talk this week. We continue with part two of our coverage of LA commotion the of ability conference recently held in California. And as good stuff on the urban road ahead. And once again, I'm joined by our America's editor at large, Ed Stocker. We'll even get a ride in a driverless vehicle. This is about as quickly as you go in traffic. Anyway, we speak with Montreal's lively mad Valerie plant who doesn't own a car about her bold public transport plans for the city, and we'll have Stony as minister of economic fares and infrastructure about what makes her nation such a mobility ideas mover. Join us over the next thirty minutes as we whiz to the future. That's coming up on the best with me. Andrew talk Stocker are America's editor at large. So welcome to this week's program. I up vary plant. The Montreal mayor is on a mission to make transport and she calls it sexy. She argues that we need to start looking at it in a different way. Namely as an engine for change and development, and is all wrapped up and Canada's bold environmental goals for me every time, we think about public transport is an opportunity think about social development are we doing for example, and you by bus line or Mitchell station in an area where it's really Dan's maybe from a socio economic, it's less diversifies. It opens up up at Unity's and economically. Of course. Because for obvious reason like, you know, traffic jam costs a lot of money for cities. But also when you build public transport. It's good it creates jobs, and then when you know that your population is mobile, it is really good for the economy and finally for the environment. I have very bold objective. Gives to be carbo neutral by twenty fifty and zero ways by twenty thirty and died means for Montreal to go strong on public transport because this is where we're at for Canada for Quebec Montreal is not so much about doing the change for a better source of energy because we have Joyal trysofi. So the only way to reach your goals is to transport some cities like London and New York is saying drops in public transport ridership. I think loyalty because of rideshare how'd you sort of tackle that issue? And how do you work with the ride Chaz, how do you battle against potential drop like that that is such a question because as we create more public transport options at has to be acceptable, both physically and financially. Right. So if it's not acceptable financially, then we're missing the whole point. And this is where we need to work with our governments and making sure that we have for example, social fairs that it's cheaper for different types of populated for pursuits. Or maybe for. Elders. And this discussion that we're having Montreal with the government of Quebec. And I would say there's a will to make sure that everybody can take metro and for me, I feel I it will be a success one. Everybody takes metro whatever you're rich or not rich or your now. Dir your your student? You're young whatever what is your background? You wanna take the metro or the bus because it is again accessible, it's comfortable in quick. And what's so secret for curbing vehicle? Use Montreal as high taxation is at cheap transport. What's the golden ticket? Well, I I wish we had a golden ticket. We'd love that by there is no major investment into the public transport sector and since I took office. This is a priority for me. So now, we just for example, three hundred hybrid buses were fighting for to new one metro lines, and and you know, other options and so now the question of money is being race. And it makes sense. And now we need to diversify our sources of financing, and that means bringing the other level of government into the mobility change. And it is not an easy one where in Quebec, for example, all tax payers pay for the highways where for public transport is about seventy percent. So there's always at twenty five twenty twenty five percent is being paid by the locals, which I think is observed we shouldn't be all being for a highways, and if we do that we should be all paying as well for public transport options. So there is many conversation than used to happen in my. Char- we're lucky because our public transport systems been there for a while people are used to love it. They're attached to it. But there's not an easy way. And personally as mayor though, I'm open to different types of taxation. It's a conversation that needs to happen with the different level of government. Because again, it cannot be solely the responsibility of a mayor USA mentioned earlier today, this idea of healthy living, how does that work with public transport on a day-to-day level, it works altogether, where my hope and what I think we should be leading towards his to have for example, a family living in an apartment building having a small house downtown and the kids can go to school walking because the sidewalks are biking because it safe. And then you the parents jump in the metro station that is just downstairs, and so they don't have to use a card or not stuck in traffic. And then you know, they can easily go from home to work and come back and spend more time with their family in the public spaces and parks and stuff like that. And to me, this is really the vision for the future we need. To minimize urban sprawl, we need to make sure if we wanna say the planet that make sure the environment is following, you know, it's about density and having healthy cities and healthy means a lot of mobility options public transport is one but also the car-sharing bike sharing as well. Which we have in mind shell it's like a cocktail, right? So I'm back to sexiness of transport while we need to have a cocktail, mobility cocktail. I'll drink that. I'll drink. That was Montreal's ma- Valerie plant speaking to you at.
