The second day of June is marked as Horses Without Carriages International Day, an international day to ban horse drawn carriages.
The Anti Calèche Defense Coalition joins the movement in order to inform Montrealers as well as tourists that there is a desire by the citizens of Montreal to abolish the arduous and cruel practice of horse drawn carriages. Montreal should evolve and end this antique practice of tourism.
There was an event created on Facebook in order to inform animal advocates about the event and share information regarding the cruelty that is promoted as a touristic attraction in Montreal. For some strange reason the event was removed from Facebook. Although the event is no longer on Facebook, animal advocates will continue to hold the event and the information about the event is on the site for the The Anti Calèche Defense Coalition.
