ATTENTION ALL DOG OWNERS
On November 18th, 2009 a BILL will be put forth by MPP Cheri Di Novo to
Queens Park removing the breed specific part that is currently in Ontario’s Dog Owner’s Liability Act.

If possible, attend the morning PRESS RELEASE at the front of Queens Park
on November 18th, starting at 9:30 am and ending around 11:30 am.

Cheri will be presenting the Private Members Bill in the house around 3pm,
for those who would like to stay for the afternoon and would like to sit  in
the gallery.
PARKING.  For those who need parking and do not want to drive to the
Queens Park location,  attached is a list of subway stations where you can park cars.  One would have to check if there is a cost involved at their preferred station.

We have also designed a poster for people to put up in all areas of  Ontario
and the link to the poster is below.   We are in the middle of designing a
web page called “stopcanineprofiling” in support of the private members
bill.  It will be added to the poster as soon as it is decided if it will
be either dot com or dot ca.  When this is done (anytime now) the poster will
reflect the change and the support web site will be added to the poster.

POSTER FOR PRINT OUT:

In the meantime, PLEASE feel free to write Cheri a letter of support.

We ask that you also phone, fax or write your local MPP’s and ask THEM to
support Cheri’s private members bill.  A full list of Ontario’s MPP’s is below.

Looking forward to a end of legalized discrimination and profiling in Ontario.

  1. So I’ve heard of a second case, where the “Stunt Driving” charge for merely travelling over 50km or more above the speed limit was ruled unconstitutional because a) there is no defence and b) there’s potential jail time. Judges have ruled the combination of the two just can’t be allowed to happen in Ontario… (Uh, yeah… …And I have this nice bridge for sale…)

    Hmmmmm…. Where are these sage judges when it comes to dog-related laws? For goodness sakes, a dog is a living thing (not just a car), and its life can be taken away if neither it, nor its owner, has done anything wrong at all (other than existing). At least with the stunt driving charges, the driver was actually breaking the law. If it weren’t so dire, it would be comical.

  2. Well we all have seen the Liberals Micheal Byrant…auther of the Dog Bill in Ontario…live in action…KILLING a cyclist… and getting away with MURDER…So don’t count on this being removed…. I want to move from Ontario. Only my wife holds me in this sick Province.
