Bill 112: An Act to amend the Animals for Research Act and the Dog Owners’ Liability Act with respect to pit bulls in Ontario, Canada.
We the undersigned believe it is time to end the restriction of pit bull type dogs in Ontario, Canada. These beautiful Animals have been banned in Ontario since 2005. Many families have lost their beautiful family members due to this outrages law.
There are families that would love to live in Ontario but are unwilling to give up their family members. It's time to end this NOW! It has been proven that there is no scientific designation as to what a pit bull type dog is. There is no evidence that one type of dog is more dangerous than any other. In signing this petition we the people of the undersigned would like this ridiculous ban removed. We would love to see these beautiful Animals back living in a loving, friendly province such as Ontario. It is fully within Premier Kathleen Wynne's power to reconstitute Bill
Tell the new Premier to put
Bill 16 back on the Order Paper for Third Reading so that it can be
voted on immediately.

Breed bans may have grandfather clauses that allow dogs of targeted breeds to stay in the ban area (provided they are registered with the municipality by a certain date, and likely subject to various breed-specific restrictions
