Editor’s note: Bill 138 defines “fierce, dangerous or restricted dogs, including defining them by breed, cross-breed, partial breed, behaviour or type” and allows for the “regulating [of] the keeping of fierce, dangerous or restricted dogs, including requiring spaying or neutering, liability insurance, warning signs, physical controls on or off the owner’s property or training requirements.”

From Canada.com:

“…We think that finally it’s time B.C. followed Ontario’s lead and banned pit bulls (while allowing current owners to keep their pets).

The evidence is clear: Pit bulls, due to their breeding over many years, are time bombs.

We have enough problems with violence in our society without having them in our midst.”
