MONTREAL – It looks like things in NDG are about to get hairy.

Federal politicians in the NDG-Westmount riding of Montreal are about to have some unofficial furry competition in Humbert the cat.

“When we saw the election signs go up, we thought ‘let’s get up our own,” said John Jordan, the cat’s owner.

Some of Humbert’s slogans include “an honest face” and “keep the box clean.”

“He’s a man of the people, he’s a well-known public figure in NDG,” said Jordan.
