Earlier this week we ran an interview with Montreal city councilor, Benoit LaDouce about his proposed bylaw that would require dogs in Montreal dog-parks to understand commands in both English and French.
After a public outcry on the internet Mr. LaDouce has decided to amend his bylaw in response to public opinion. According to Mr. LaDouce, "Thanks to the internet I have learned that dogs don't respond to any language, rather tones and hand signals. My new bylaw will reflect that."
Earlier today Pat Kelly spoke with him to learn more about his new bylaw.
We want to know what you think: Should Montreal dog parks be "language-free"? Let us know but posting to our Facebook page or by tweeting @CBCThisIsThat using the hashtag #bilingualdogs.
