Nova Scotia Considers Legislation That Would Allow Municipalities to Ban/Restrict Specific Breeds

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.”


“…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.”
