Disappointed by the Supreme Court of Canada? You bet'cha.

I am disappointed and saddened by the Supreme Court of Canada's decision not to hear the appeal of the Ontario Liberals' unfounded, unjust, vague and shoddy "pit bull" ban.
Cried at my desk when I heard.
I can't believe that the Supreme Court didn't see this law for what it is. A law that makes people into second-class citizens when they have done no wrong. Solely on the basis of the property they own - their dogs. No basis in fact or science.

This Ontario Liberal unfounded, unjust, vague and shoddy law must be repealed. It was passed when the Ontario Liberals' public approval rating was extremely low.
This law was passed in complete defiance of the knowledge, experience and judgment of canine experts.
This law made law-abiding people into second-class citizens.
This law killed dogs of all ages - adults, seniors and puppies alike - solely on the basis of their shape.
This law caused law-abiding people to move out of Ontario to keep their dogs safe.
This law broke peoples' hearts when it killed their dogs. Their innocent dogs.

Every MPP who voted for this law has the blood of innocent dogs and puppies on their hands.
And should have shredded Charter rights on their conscience.
If they have one.

Perhaps not. Perhaps political ambition causes moral corruption and ultimately moral bankruptcy.

But it ain't over.
I'm not going to roll over and play dead.
Many, many people I know aren't going to roll over and play dead.

Since the courts have abandoned us, it's time to get political.
Join a party. PC or NDP, I don't care, don't bother with the fringes.
We are going to throw the McGuinty Liberals to the curb in the next election.

We have had many kicks to the teeth but it takes more than that to shut us down.
Changing gears is what I call it. Disappointment is a good way to describe it. All is not lost. We have accomplished much and aren't going anywhere. There are a whole lot a people out there that won't back down and we won't stop until this law, based on propaganda and lies is overturned. One way or another..
