No one will stop it.Now that the legislature has passed they can now add any breed they deem dangerous to this list with no voting on it.What is next GSD,Rottie,Dobermans,Cane Corsos,South African Boerboels,Presa Canarios,Tosa Inu,American Bulldog,Olde english Bulldogge,Dogue De Bordeaux,Dutch Sheperd.Oh wait they will just ban any dog over 25 lbs.This BSL pisses me off.It is not the dog it is the owner.Now the owners who are the bad owners that caused this will just go out and buy another breed that can be trained to be bad.They think pitbulls cause damage in the wrong hands just wait till they figure out what a Tosa Inu can do in those hands.

"Well, I don't have a pit bull."
"Well, I don't smoke."
"Well, I'm not gay."

Well, go to hell!

And I agree with what Buckshot and Renee said.
I do not own a pit bull-I disagree with the ban completely and have written several letters even got one back too, telling me that I just could not grasp the reality of the dangers of pit bulls. Guess I am dumb.
I SMOKE- although in no public places, they are attempting to make smoking illegal outside of your home.
I am not gay but have several friends who are so I support the gay.

I may go to hell but not before making a stink about this stupidity and not before actively becoming involved in the protests. I just gotta borrow a pit bull from the kid down the street to go and join the protsets. Oh and by the way there are four friendly as heck pit bulls here in Bourget which is a fart sized town that the owners will be putting to sleep because they cannot afford the rediculous prices for neutering and one that refuses to muzzle his dog because the dog had its nose broken as a baby. Yes it was due to abuse and it is so sensitive that anything rubbing on the nose causes it great discomfort. He feels that it would be less cruel to PTS then wear a muzzle in this case. This dog is a gentle, kind doggy too, I babysit it regularily...it is wonderful with my kiddies too and with Yukon; they are great buddies so this is why the ban upsets me so much. I lose a friend too

Hey Lisa they already tried to ban the GSD, it was the RCMP who through a fit over that one because there police dogs are all GSD and they have started there own breeding program. So that one got squashed right away, even before it became public. Comes in handy having connections once in a while.

lol! Oh my gosh Heather, that wasn't directed at you! lol Not at all. It wasn't directed towards anyone on the board. It was directed at people I've met who are for these types of laws and say these types of things (mostly during my work against the gay marriage ban and the smoking ban in Columbus.) You started this post about how you think the ban is wrong, so I know you're not like that. I was talking about people who are for bans like these, not you! The "Go to hell" was directed at people who say that kind of stuff, not you. lol... Oh my gosh, what a misunderstanding.

Perhaps posters with photos of those elected officials who voted for the ban with words like "Genocidist" "Murderer" "Puppy Killer" "Adolph's Disciple" printed over them in lurid red letters . . .

Nothing like a bit of drama to make your point . . .

Oh, and might I also suggest that there might be quite a black market developing in 'papers' for all sorts of Staffordshire Terriers, etc.

If they ban The GSD I will be moving I dont care if I have to move to timbucktoo lol.When we buy a bigger place I will be buying a Tosa Inu so they better not ban those either.Stupid goverment dont they realise it is just stupid punk kids and drug dealers that are causing these dogs to be like this.Ban the stupid owners of any dog that bites from ever owning another and that would help alot more than BSL.I am so mad about this I could scream.

I knew that I just meant after the stink I have been causing here in Ontario, I just may go to hell but it will be worth it in the end if I can make just a speck of difference.

Oh, and start finding out which vets are price gouging on spay and neuter for Pits - call and ask for the price on a breed of similar size and weight, then call back later and ask about the price for a Pit - and start circulating lists with the results of the phone calls. Make sure you document those calls; ask who you are speaking to, write down the time of the phone call, the breed you asked about, etc. Don't editorialize, just put down the hard facts.
