A mascot for the City – A new ambassador for all municipal activities

The mayor of the City of Pointe-Claire, Morris Trudeau, and City Council members are pleased to announce the arrival of a new ambassador for the City: a friendly and comforting mascot.

The cute stuffed-animal mascot will be in the City all summer. It could be dressed as a civilian, as a construction site supervisor, or as an inspector with the Inspection – Public Security Department, as it demonstrates the best behaviours for all situations.

“This initiative is part of our strategic plan to promote the strengths and advantages of Pointe-Claire, as well as increasing our appeal to families participating in activities and events organized by the City,” states Mayor Trudeau.

The mascot will be present during special events such as Quebec’s National Holiday, Canada Day, the Valois Fair, the Reading Party at the Library, day camps, competitions at the Aquatic Centre and outdoor pools, block parties, and various construction sites of our Public Works teams. As it raises awareness about remaining alert on the road – whether by car, on foot, or by bicycle – sorting waste, and adopting safe practices that follow the rules and respect other people, the mascot will be a source of cheer and excitement.

Children will also be invited to take part in a contest to find a name for it. The mascot will be present at various day camps and during special events to collect the best ideas for names. The person whose original idea best represents our mascot and the City’s image will receive a prize. The contest is reserved for children aged 5 to 12 living in Pointe-Claire and ends on July 31, 2017. The mascot’s name will be revealed in August, and the contest winner will be announced and receive their prize.

Everyone is invited to meet our new, welcoming, smiling and lively mascot throughout the summer, take a picture with it, and give it a hug!
