CFAX Jan 1:
A group that opposes horse carriages in Victoria is hoping a contract between horse carriage operators and the City of Victoria is not renewed.
The Victoria Horse Alliance says the rental agreement between the two parties has expired, which means carriage operators cannot operate at their usual location at the corner of Menzies and Belleville Street until a new agreement is reached.
The Alliance plans to petition the city demanding the lease not be renewed due to extensive documentation of the inhumane treatment of the horses, safety issues, and public opposition to the practice in the modern era.
This would effectively ban the horse drawn carriages from Victoria.
^ So CFAX would have been better off to just wait one day to get the other side here ^
Instead of having to do this ...

It's business as usual for horse carriage operators in Victoria.
Monday, the Victoria Horse Alliance claimed the rental agreement between the horse carriage operators and the City of Victoria had expired, meaning they couldn't operate at their usual location at the corner of Menzies and Belleville Street until a new agreement is reached.
Donna Friedlander, Owner/Operator, Tally Ho Carriage Tours says the Alliance doesn't have its facts right.
"We do renew our business license with the City of Victoria every year, much like every other business and that business license is due nfor renewal January 1st with the fees and documentation due by January 15th."
Friedlander also takes exception to the Alliance's concerns of the inhumane treatment of the horses. She says althought the horses are used for commercial purposes, they are treated as pets and live on the farm with Friedlander and her family.
