Montreal bylaw requires dogs understand commands in both official languages
UPDATE: Councilor LaDouce is amending his bilingual dog bylaw, and believes Montreal dog parks should be language-free. Pat Kelly spoke with him to learn more.
Earlier this week, Montreal city councilor Benoit LaDouce proposed a bylaw that would require all dogs in public parks to be bi-lingual. According to Mr. LaDouce, "Dogs parks in our city are chaotic and communication is at the heart of the conflict." In his mind, K9/citizen relations would be more harmonious if dogs in public spaces understood commands in both English and French.
