Côte Saint-Luc District 2 Councillor Mike Cohen 2017 Year in Review
Many issues discussed at first Dog Owners Forum

Dog Owners invited to special meeting at City Hall on Monday, January 8

Here is a press release we issued for the January 8 meeting.

The City of Côte Saint-Luc  is inviting dog owners to a special meeting on Monday, January 8 (7:30 pm) in the Council Chamber of City Hall (5801 Cavendish Boulevard).

Councillor Mike Cohen, who is responsible for the Animal Protection portfolio, has asked two new councillors who are dog owners – Mitch Kujavsky and Oren Sebag – to join him at the podium along with Public Safety Director Jordy Reichson.


“The objective of this meeting is to begin the process of having an actual Dog Owners Committee established,” said Councillor Cohen. “Eight years ago we held such a public meeting for cat owners. The turnout was outstanding and as a result a very successful hard working committee was born.”

Councillor Cohen expects the subject of allowing dogs in parks (on leashes) to be a major topic of discussion. He has invited Diane Liebling, the chair of the CSL Cats Committee, to deliver opening remarks about what is needed to set up a successful committee.

Two years ago Councillor Cohen set up an ad hoc Dog Run Advisory Committee. It was headed by Abe Haim, who became a spokesman for dog owners using the Mackle Road facility. Haim proposed that a fence be constructed to sub-divide the area between small and large dogs. This was done in the fall. More recently, he requested that lighting be installed. That was done too. In the spring a new Dog Run will debut near Meadowbrook Golf Course on Côte St. Luc Road.

For more information about the meeting call 514-485-6945 or e-mail mcohen@cotesaintluc.org.

The lighting improvement is for an area that is already well covered. What was equired was a light pole and lights at the north east corner of the dog park (compass north east, within the sectioned off small dog area.

Further, as was requested to reverse the opening of the front gate to the park so that we could do some snow removal. All gates open towards the west, which makes it difficult for clearing the snow at the entrance.

If I am unable to attend, we need a light where I mentioned it above, and the one that was installed could be relocated.

Councillor Cohen and dog owner councillor's. Come to the park after a snow fall, and at 5pm in winter (like the coming days)

Leslie we have made some first-time improvement. The meeting Monday is not to talk in detail about the dog run -dog issues in general.
