Media

Media Coverage, we’ve got it.

Victoria Horse Alliance is regularly in the media due to the high profile nature of the inhumane Victoria horse carriages industry.

Here are many of the links to written articles, tv, and radio interviews  that we have done with the media.  We appreciate their coverage of this important issue at both a local and a national level. This page will be updated regularly.

Sometime we are misquoted in these articles which is unfortunate, but part of the busy mainstream media reporting process. If there is a specific question that you have about any of the claims we have made, please let us know and we will do our best to address it.

For example; there are many organizations across the world working to ban horse carriages in their community based on inhumane treatment of the animals. However, it is often reported that horse carriages have been banned from specific cities, when this is not necessarily the case.  We have never claimed or reported that horse carriages have been completely banned from any city; although, their have been in some.  We do recognize that many cities have chosen to remove them from their downtown cores, but we have been misrepresented saying they have been banned from numerous cities when that is not what we said.  Thank you.
