Yesterday (September 27, 2016), Montreal’s city council officially passed a by-law targeting specific dog breeds (mostly pit bulls, but also bully-type breeds AND any dog that has pit bull-like features). This decision was poorly made and will without a doubt be poorly executed.
Montreal’s SPCA has already filed legal action against the city because such a law goes against Quebec’s animal welfare laws. In addition, they created this super informative site with facts on dog bites, why breed-specific legislations never work, and even suggestions on how to actually make everyone in a community feel safe.
Please take the time out of your day to sign the petition found on this website. Your support means the world to the SPCA and Montrealers who have pit bulls (myself included).
