Vigil tonight for 18 dogs killed in St Lazare kennel fire

Fire has been ruled accidental

A vigil Thursday evening for the 18 dogs killed in a kennel fire during the holidays.

The blaze broke out December 28th in St Lazare and has been ruled an accident.

The vigil is scheduled for 7 o'clock at the Pitou Minou pet food store at 3100 Harwood in the Hudson shopping center.

"This is something that when there's a loss of this magntiude in a community, we would do for people and just recognizing that the role that these dogs had in their families' lives was that of a family member. It's the least we can do", said vigil organizer Caroline Guy.

  • Cote St. Luc seniors drop-in centre will remain open

    A popular Cote St. Luc seniors drop-in centre will stay open, at least for now.

    The Montreal Gazette reported Saturday that the Caregiver Support Centre in the Cavendish Mall, which was supposed to close at the end of the month, had a late Friday reprieve from the health authority.

    Meanwhile the paper reports Cote St. Luc Mayor Anthony Housefather and Hampstead Mayor Bill Steinberg will meet next week to see if they can arrange alternate west-end facilities for the 40 seniors who use the centre.

    It's still not known if the decision is permanent, but certainly a relief for family members and caregivers who desperately want to keep their loved ones in their own community.
