Sign the Petition to

The Honourable Kathleen Wynne, Premier of Ontario, Canada

Honestly, how many of you have ever actually experienced or witnessed a Pit Bull attack? When people hear, "there's been a dog attack!" they automatically jump to the conclusion that that "vicious" dog was a Pit Bull, and that they are "terrible" and "horrid" dogs. But really, who knows? Maybe it was a Golden Retriever or even a Pomeranian? And maybe, even if that dog was a Pit Bull, they were driven to attack. You say, "oh, but they attack and maul babies and children as well as adults." First of all, what do you think that child was doing to the dog. Children do not know all the proper etiquette that is needed to address a dog, any dog. Perhaps that child was pulling the dogs tail, or poking and prodding the Pit Bull. Maybe along with that, the owner did not properly train their Pit Bull. We haven't banned German Shepherds in Ontario, and we shouldn't. I'm sure they have attacked humans. So why Pit Bulls? They don't deserve this punishment, just because a few owners failed to properly raise their dog and train them. "Judge the Deed, not the Breed," seriously.

Signed,

Macui Anderson

By helping this petition, you will be supporting the withdrawal of the ban of Pit Bulls in Ontario, Canada. Having a ban on Pit Bulls really is a form of exclusion, if you think of it including other species. Pit Bulls are just ordinary dogs, just because there have been a few attacks, that doesn't mean that they should be banned. You don't ban criminals out of a province, or territory, or state, or even a country. So why specify in a type of dog breed? If the government wants to ban Pit Bulls, why not ban all dogs? Because they don't have a reason. It's the same with Pit Bulls. Judge the Deed not the Breed. Deal with incidents involving single dogs, not an entire breed.
