PROVINCE OF ONTARIO, CANADA - TOURISM ALERT
The province of Ontario, Canada is in the final stage of implementing
breed specific legislation.
This coming law is DELIBERATELY VAGUE, and will "ban" pit bull terriers,
Staffordshire Bull Terriers, American Staffordshire Terriers, American
Pit Bull Terriers and ANY dog resembling those breeds - which could
include Labrador retrievers, GREAT DANES, Boxers, Rottweilers, Boston
Terriers, and ANY OTHER DOG WITH SHORT HAIR AND A LARGE HEAD..
To avoid the possibility of a tourist's dog being seized and either
euthanized or sent to a research laboratory, the Dog Legislation Council
of Canada strongly recommends that all tourists travelling with dogs
NOT visit Ontario.
When this law is enacted, tourists will not be advised of this "ban" and
its requirements. Further, a municipality may pass by-laws no less
onerous than this coming law, which means that travelling through
Ontario will require a tourist to research the by-laws in every
municipality on the route. Seizure of a tourist's dog is probable, not
Please warn your viewers that for the safety of their dogs - Do NOT
travel in Ontario.
