The City of Côte Saint-Luc recently launched a pilot project to allow dogs on leashes in six parks and several green spaces.
“Dog owners have told us they appreciate being able to bring their pets to city parks and green spaces,” Mayor Mitchell Brownstein said. “We found a good balance by selecting certain parks and ensuring a safe distance from playgrounds and splash pads for the pilot project.”
When in public, dog owners must always keep their dog on a leash, have up-to-date dog tags issued by Côte Saint-Luc or any other municipality, and scoop up after their dog.
The parks or green spaces that now allow leashed dogs include Aaron Hart Park along David Lewis St., Harold Greenspon Park on Borden Ave., the green space between Marc Chagall Ave. and the parking lot of the Bernard Lang Civic Centre, the green space on Baily Rd. between Northluc and Cavendish, the green space on Baily Rd. between Lyndale and Glencrest, and a section of Kirwan Park between Blossom and Wentworth.
“We’ve achieved our goal of having dog-friendly parks that serve all parts of the city,” Mayor Brownstein said. “We will continue to monitor how the parks or green spaces are being used, to decide whether we should expand dog-friendly parks to more areas.”
The city’s exclusive dog park is located on Mackle Rd, between Caldwell and Parkhaven.
We wish all our Côte Saint-Luc dogs and their owners a happy, tail-wagging holiday season.

Congratulations to all of our extraordinary Cote Saint-Luc volunteers who were recently feted at the Cineplex Odeon in the Cavendish Mall. Hundreds of volunteers were present for a unique video presentation introducing each of the winners from every sphere of life in our city.
Cote Saint-Luc has been blessed with a rich sense of volunteerism for over 50 years. Whether its in sports and recreation, culture and leisure or public safety, Cote Saint-Luc is a wonderful place to live in large part because of the generosity of spirit, time and activity offered by so many hundreds of residents all year long.
As a long time volunteer myself, getting involved in the Emergency Measures Organization back in 1979, I can easily relate to our volunteers, of any age, and understand just how enjoyable and rewarding it is to get involved and to give back to one’s community.
A special shout out to the incredible, outstanding life-savers at EMS and to our dedicated members of vCOP.
A million thanks to all of our wonderful volunteers,

Kudos to the ever active members of Cote Saint-Luc’s Men’s Club. These energetic and youthful men, now numbering over 500, are busy every week with a myriad of activities, lectures, trips and more. Recently, they passed around the hat and ponied up over one thousand dollars to ease the suffering just a tiny bit for those affected by the devastating earthquake in Italy.

Entitled ‘Children’s Programming in the Community’, Cote Saint-Luc Mayor Mitchell Brownstein held a public consultation last week to hear from parents of those under five years of age about young children’s services.

The latest musical parody swept into Cote Saint-Luc last night at the Harold Greenspon Auditorium in CSL City Hall as the CSL Dramatic Society presented Ari Sterlin’s “Florida”, a take-off on the Broadway musical hit production of Chicago.
Star of stage and council meetings, Mayor Mitchell Brownstein, opened the show saying, “Providing members of our community with the ability to exercise their passions while bringing arts and culture to the community is a core value and fundamental reason for which the City of Cote Saint-Luc decided to establish a Dramatic Society. Actors and audiences benefit alike creating a better quality of life for all to enjoy.”
The fast-paced humour, dancing and singing highlights the talents of many returning local actors. Notably, senior performers Judy Kenigsberg (Roxie Hartkovitch), Hannah Scheffren (Velma Cohen) and Councillor Sam Goldbloom (Moe Sunshine) kibbitz and cajole in a fun-loving way as youngster Jordana Kujavsky (Mama Moses) returns to the CSL stage and wows the crowd with dimples and gusto.
Rookie CSLDS actor Louis Schiff (Amos) does a funny solo number, Cellophane Rabbi, while another first-timer Dan Sterlin puts on an impressive sleaze-bucket lawyer performance as Billy Schwartz.
Based in Cemetery Village in South Florida the parody pokes fun at Bubbies and Zaides. Florida tells the story of a past-her-prime vaudeville star and a new hopeful on the scene who will find themselves locked up together in Florida’s finest penitentiary after having committed horrible crimes toward their men. Ari Sterlin does a fine job at writing, directing and choreographing this spoof production.
This show is a Senior Summerworks Production pairing senior citizens with emerging young artists. The artistic director is none other than the incomparable, talented and energetic Anisa Cameron.
If you wait you’ll miss it so go get your tickets before it’s too late. Last night’s opening performance was sold out. There are just four performances this weekend: two afternoon matinees and two evening shows, this Saturday and Sunday (Aug. 27 and 28). Visit www.CSLDramaticSociety.com for details or get your tickets at the Aquatic and Community Centre or the Public Library.
