There will be a peaceful demonstration in Ottawa on November 28th to protest Bill 132. This legislation goes well beyond banning breeds and affects everyone.

It broadens the powers of police officers so that they can enter your home WITHOUT A WARRANT on the basis of a complaint from a neighbour and seize your dog. The may also shoot the dog if they feel they are in any danger.

It provides for fines for having a menancing dog but it fails to define menacing.

It fails to include a provision for aggressive behaviour, e.g. a bite, if the dog is provoked. That means that someone can beat or tease the dog unmercifully and if it reacts, you can be fined and your dog ordered put down.

It not only bans Pit Bulls, American Pit Bulls, Staffordshire Bull Terriers and American Staffordshires but anything that looks like one.

If someone accuses you of having one of the banned breeds, you will have to defend yourself in court and try to prove that the dog's lineage. Consequently, if you had for instance a lab/boxer cross that looked pitty, you may have to defend yourself in court. In essence it is reverse onus, i.e. guilty until proven innocent.

There are many provisions in this legislation that many people are not aware of. It assaults all dog owners and their civil liberties.

For more information on the demonstration in Ottawa, please see

Please crosspost widely.

I'm hoping that this is going to be challenged in the Canadian equivalent of the Supreme Court.

Bill 132 passed second reading yesterday. However, the Bill has been referred to the Standing Committee on Legislative Assembly. This means that individuals and organizations will have an opportunity to present information and testimony why BSL does not work and present options that are more effective.

Organizations or individuals interested in presenting to the Committee must pre-book their appearance. The name and coordinates for the Committee Clerk is as follows:

Clerk: Douglas Arnott

[email protected]

Tel: (416) 325-3506

Fax: (416) 325-3505

TTY: (416) 325-3538

Those on the list will be contacted when the hearings commence. In addition, public hearings may be scheduled in various locations depending on the numbers in each geographical location.
