UPDATE!!! The Ontario Attorney General's Office apparently ILLEGALLY using copyrighted breed standards to kill dogs! Read it on Caveat! And see pictures of Munchie!!! I want whatever drugs Toronto Animal Services and the AG's office were on when they turned Munchie into a "pit bull"!
Lab owners, reinforce your doors, they're coming for you next!
Read it and weep.
In short - A woman lives near a man who allegedly repeatedly made threats, tried to kill her dog, broke down her door and held her at knifepoint, and Toronto Animal Services spends tax dollars to kill her dog as quickly as possible.
If you own property of a certain shape, a dog, you are a second-class citizen in the Dictatorship of Ontario. Especially if you're a woman, young, or without a certain income (aka poor).
Regardless of the fact that you are a law-abiding citizen who has never done wrong, you have fewer rights than a pedophile, drug dealer, or a violent lunatic who repeatedly threatens you, tries to kill your dog, breaks down your door and holds you at knifepoint.
Your "property of a certain shape" - your dog - can be a Lab, a boxer, a mastiff, a Great Dane, a Shar-Pei, a Rhodesian Ridgeback or any one of dozens of breeds. That doesn't begin to include the crossed and mixed breed dogs of uncertain heritage that people may claim are "pit bulls".
Remember that former Attorney General Michael Bryant, the architect of Ontario's breed ban, was unable to identify the American Pit Bull Terrier in a series of pictures of purebred dogs.
The McGuinty Liberals passed an unfounded, unjust, vague and shoddy law bolstered only by inflammatory rhetoric and repudiated by all qualified canine experts, at a time when the party's public appeal was very low.
The McGuinty Liberals ignored the canine experts who said this law was wrong, and ignored the common-sense advice for improving public safety with regards to dogs.
As we can see in this case, the McGuinty and Bryant law did not protect this woman or her property. In fact, it will deprive her of her property by killing her dog, because under this law anyone who owns a dog of a certain shape is a second-class citizen.
The McGuinty Liberals are responsible for this woman's terror and her dog's death. For making law-abiding people into second-class citizens and targets of legislated harassment and assault, based solely on the shape of property they own.
Whenever I see a picture of McGuinty or Bryant, I can see the blood on their hands. Only and all for political ambition.
