Fate of New York City's carriage horses in the balance

    TORONTO, Jan. 30 /CNW/ - The Toronto Humane Society waits for New York
City Council Committee on Consumer Affairs to decide the fate of to
Manhattan's carriage horses. The Committee considers a Bill today, introduced
by City Council Member Tony Avella, to remove tourist horse carriages from
busy Manhattan streets.
    We want New Yorkers to know that we love their city and cherish our
visits to its wonderful attractions, but seeing horses toil amongst heavy
traffic in summer heat and winter cold only saddens us.
    After the public meeting at City Hall, Blinders, the 2008 documentary
film about carriage horses in Manhattan will be screened at 8:30pm at Jivamukh
Yoga School at 741 Broadway in New York.
