BANNED AID BATTLES IN 11TH HOUR RALLY!

 

Having raised and paid a total of $650,000, only to loose the last
appeal, the Banned Aid Coalition (Advocates for the Underdog, Golden Horseshoe
APBTC, American Staffordshire Terrier Club of Canada, Staffordshire Bull
Terrier Club of Canada and the Dog Legislation Council of Canada) have not quit
and gone home! They will, through legal council Clayton Ruby, make one more
attempt to overturn Ontario's Bill 132
which banned 3 purebreds and untold mixes fitting the physical definition
of a “pit bull” in the province.

 

This has now truly become a valiant effort on the part of those individuals
involved to change the status of this Provincial breed ban. If unsuccessful in
their efforts, their failure will not be because of lack of effort and a
failure would clear the way for unchallenged legislation to be introduced
elsewhere in the country.

 

In less than 9 days, by January 23, 2009, an outstanding $67,000
must be paid (or guaranteed) before Banned Aid can proceed with an appeal to
the Supreme Court of Canada which is estimated to cost yet another $70,000.

 

“After raising and paying $650,000,” said Cathy Prothro
treasurer for the Banned Aid Coalition “It would be a travesty for our
dogs to have come so far and have to stop now for the sake of $67,000 that we
just don't have in hand at the moment. This isn't much time and we need
help.”

 

“So far, the majority of funds raised have come from individual
donors that are too many to list,” said Prothro “but it would be
appropriate to thank the CKC clubs and related organizations who have come forward!”

 

The following have come forward with financial support
contributing a significant percent of the total $650,000 raised and paid so
far. For those who have been holding back…consider a contribution before the
January 23 filing date.
