Our new mascot’s name is Buddy

Children’s contest to find a name

The mayor of the City of Pointe-Claire, Morris Trudeau, and members of City Council are pleased to announce the name selected for the City mascot after the summer contest: Buddy.

Children aged 5 to 12 living in Pointe-Claire took part in the contest and submitted nearly one hundred different and original suggestions. The cute new puppy mascot was at various events, activities, and day camps to meet children and encourage them to find him a name.

Jude Martin (age 6) and Gabrielle Morin (age 11) are the two Pointe-Claire children who suggested the most popular name, Buddy. At a ceremony that took place at City Hall, they had a chance to spend some time with Buddy, who gave them their prize: a day with their friends at the Rabbids Amusement Centre in Pointe-Claire.

Buddy was at many activities throughout the City all summer. Dressed as a civilian, as a construction site supervisor, or as an inspector with the Inspection – Public Security Department, he demonstrated the best behaviours for all situations.

He was spotted at Quebec’s National Holiday, Canada Day, the Valois Fair, the Reading Party at the Library, and at the Aquatic Centre. He is also expected to make many other appearances throughout the year. In fact, he will dress up in his costume for the Halloween Party on October 28 at the Arthur-Séguin chalet from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.

“Many of you enjoyed our cute mascot’s appearances, which were fun for young and old alike. Our mascot is a source of pride and enthusiasm,” stated Mayor Trudeau.

Everyone is invited to give Buddy, our friendly and smiling City ambassador, a warm welcome.
