Any of these banners usable? Danapit (talk) 09:39, 7 March 2014 (UTC)

I think the one with the fall foliage is by far the prettiest. Ikan Kekek (talk) 09:58, 7 March 2014 (UTC)
Without every being to the city, I think I like the first one most, as well, so I put it in for the time being. Any ideas from the locals or someone who knows Montreal? Danapit (talk) 10:37, 7 March 2014 (UTC)

There has been a long-running effort to shut these down out of concern for animals:

After a one-year ban in 2016, the municipality intends to shut this down permanently at the end of 2019. In the meantime, one more dead horse to flog:
