This is to announce that a Press Conference will be held this coming Monday
the 14th of June between the SQDA (Société québécoise pour la défense des
animaux) and the City of Montreal with regards to our annual campaign to
ask the public to think twice before abandonning their companion animals
during the moving season.
The conference will be held in St-Laurent as of 11:00 a.m.. Alan de Sousa,
(mayor of St-Laurent and the municipal counselor of the City of Montreal
responsible for the environment) and Patricia Tulasne (actress and the
official spokesperson of the SQDA) will hold the Press conference, the City
will be contacting the media about this event in the next few days.
This is a repeat from last year, and it is encouraging that the City of
Montreal is once again cooperating with the SQDA to help spread the word
around for this important message. Last year radio and TV picked up the
story and ran with it all day. (to name a few: CJAD, CKOI, Radio Canada,
Channel 12 (CFCF), Pulse, etc.)
So please if possible keep an ear or an eye tuned to the radio or TV this
coming Monday the 14th.
Our bilingual posters for this campaign are currently being posted all over
Montreal, South Shore and Laval. If anyone is interested in helping us put
up these posters I have several pick up areas sprinkled around the greater
Montreal area. They are big and beautiful, 18 X 24 inches, poster drawing
done by Frederic Back and this year we have 5 corporate sponsors including
smartmoves.ca, the marketing firm for Canada Post. (We even have a banner
and a link on their Web site)(www.smartmoves.ca,
under the heading (tips on
moving your pets).
We also have lots of information about this campaign on our Web Site, www.sqda.org, (under the heading "campagne
de déménagement /moving
campaign" depending if on the french or english version of our web site).
So please help spread the word about this media event to your friends,
co-workers and family. There will also be publicity for a big adoption
weekend activity on the 26-27th of June (grouping together over 14
shelters, A FIRST TIME EVENT IN THE PROVINCE OF QUEBEC).
Thanking you in advance for your attention to this matter.
Toni Andrea Belschner
President of the SQDA
