Refuge Galahad & Radio-Canada: Revised

The Radio-Canada show is called “Samedi et rien d’autre” hosted by Joël Le Bigot at 7am, Saturday, March 3rd, on “The Health and Welfare of Horses”, particularly addressing the mistreatment of horses.

Guests are Refuge Galahad, the SPCA de l’Estrie (I think that’s correct), and Renée Levesque of the FEQ (Fédération Equestre du Québec).  Please visit Refuge Galahad’s site and FB, and my blog post, Association.  Don’t forget to tune in this Saturday.

PLEASE IGNORE MY PREVIOUS POST as the information had not yet been confirmed. Check with Radio-Canada to confirm the above prior to air-time this Saturday.
