Walks for Lennox and to pass Bill 16 in Ontario

Because mainstream media won't cover this type of activity, it goes against their political masters' will....

There were very welll-attended walks today in Toronto, Vancouver, St. Catherines, Peterborough, Indiana, all supporting the goal of ending "breed" specific legislation.  There have been similar very well-attended walks in the UK, Wales, Northern Ireland.

Unfounded, unjust, vague, shoddy, ineffective and fiscally irresponsible "breed" specific legislation makes law-abiding dog owners into second-class citizens and kills innocent dogs solely because of their shape. 

Lots of pictures and video coming.....

Facebook strikes again, as do scumbags trying to profit off Lennox's death

Facebook has incomprehensible rules and standards.  Its minions scour pages erratically and shut down legitimate pages concerning animal rescue and welfare, while leaving "hate" pages and pages glorifying violence against animals and people up and running. 

If this idea bothers you as much as it did me, please look at the petition to Facebook and if you agree, sign the petition.
Facebook isn't winning friends and influencing people with its behaviour lately.  If Mark Zuckerberg wants to keep his money flowing, I suggest that he look at how his social media programming is being run.


Next, onto the parasites trying to profit from the death of Lennox, a dog in Belfast, Northern Ireland unjustly killed by Belfast City Council solely because of the way he looks.  There are products floating around bearing Lennox's name and image.  Lennox's owners have been very clear about these products:

"It has come to light that some people are quite arrogantly trying to cash in in our boy. We have NOT permitted anyone to use Lennoxs name, photo, campaign in order to customize or sell items for profit or charity. Please do not buy any Lennox or I am Lennox items from any CAFEPRESS or internet pages as we have NOT permitted it and cannot assure monies will go to any charities these people claim to donate to. Pls share."
The family has publicly stated that only Ruby Tuesday Collars had family permission for the Save Lennox Wrist Bands with proceeds going to DDA Watch, which has continued with family permission to sell those for Lennox's legacy.

"The Lennox Campaign has not asked for any donation & obviously we all involved directly support the people mentioned in a seperate statement you may see but we havent made a statement as such and we have only asked people to beware of cafepress etc. We are giving the family time & then the fight to end BSL goes on."

So, don't get suckered and line someone's pockets when they're trying to profit profiting off someone else's tragedy.
