[quote]All pets are unique and trying to predict the behaviour or personality of one breed over another is difficult and unreliable.

Randy Hillier plans to introduce a new Hershey`s Bill to make a statement since Premier Wynne continues to refuse to call Bill 16 for 3rd & final Reading.
That Statement is this issue is NOT going away & WE are NOT going away!
Update Feb 21.2013:
A petition has been launched by MPP Randy Hillier to have Bill 16(will repeal BSL) brought back for 3rd & final Reading.
It is within Premier Wynne`s power to do this.
Please sign the Petition to help restore Equality to Ontario & stop the slaughter of innocent dogs.
You do not have to be from Ontario or even Canada to sign.
Newly Elected openly Gay Premier supports banning people both GAY & Straight from Ontario Canada due to her personal phobia & an unfounded stereotype.
Gay people can marry in Canada but Premier elect Kathleen Wynne will prevent a Gay family(& straight families) from living in Ontario due to the look of their family dog.
Well over 12 million Ontario Citizens have allowed & are allowing ~50 Liberal MPP`s to decimate the dog population of Ontario,divide the Citizens of Ontario into 1st & 2nd class Citizens & erode Charter Rights.
In case you`ve been living in a cave for the last 7 yrs….
In 2005 under the guise of Public Safety the Ontario Liberals introduced & passed a law which allows them to seize & outright kill family dogs or send them to Research Facilities simply due to their appearance. This can happen in Public or on your own property without a warrant.
This was nothing more than a red herring to divert the Public`s attention away from Liberal Scandals. (OLG,EHealth etc).
Dr David Kreaden explains.
The impact of this Legislation over the last 7 yrs has been horrendous.
1)1000`s of non offending puppies & dogs have been seized from their families & put to death.
2)Neighbours have turned against Neighbours.People are reporting their Neighbours for owning a ‘pit bull’ or as I like to call them Unicorns since ‘pit bulls’ don`t exist.
3)People living in areas where this law is being strictly enforced (Toronto for example) walk their dogs at night out of fear. Many have been stopped & asked for their Papers. Does this remind anyone of another time in History in another Country?
5)Tourists risk jail time,fines & a death sentence for their dog if they dare enter Ontario with any short haired mutt with a whip tail.
6)A disabled person even a Canadian Veteran or one from another Country who owns a Service dog that might fall under this Legislation risks the life of that dog & would be subject to a fine & jail time if they are seen in Ontario.
7)People from other Countries who might want to immigrate to Ontario,Canada are prevented from doing so if they have a dog that might fall under this Legislation because importing 'unicorns' is illegal with no exemptions for Immigrants. Ontario,Canada welcomes probable Terrorists(the Khadr`s) just not Terrierists.
Many Canadians who were living abroad at the time this Legislation passed in 2005 can`t come home because they may own a dog that might fall under this Legislation. Many have contacted the Support Hershey`s Bill Group about this.
10)We`re in a deficit,we are a “have not” Province yet the Ontario Liberals continue to use YOUR tax dollars to prosecute your fellow citizens including Seniors due to the appearance of their dog.
11)The Ontario Liberals are teaching the youth of Ontario to stereotype,hate,& to have NO respect for life & the Ostriches of the World then wonder why youth grow up to hate & kill & have no respect for human life. There`s a connection.
Ghandi said "You can judge the morality of a nation by the way the society treats its animals."
Well Ontario get`s an F
12)One of the unintended consequences of BSL has been suicides due to grief.
One of the best known is Mark Amston from the UK who committed suicide in 1991 at the age of 20.
We have received (unconfirmed) reports that there have been at least 2 BSL related suicides in Ontario. Impossible to confirm unless the families of the victims come forward.
If you`re an Ostrich (aware of this Legislation but not speaking up to voice your opposition) you`re just as responsible for what`s happening in Ontario as the Liberals.
What can you do?
Send an email to your own MPP & the new Premier(Kathleen Wynne) demanding a Repeal of BSL.
And if you`re a Liberal,help us get rid of the BSL supporters in the next Election. If your Liberal MPP supports BSL do NOT support them. If you do,the discrimination & the slaughter will continue.
A Minority Liberal Gov`t will block the next Hershey`s Bill to repeal BSL from getting to 3rd Reading just like McGuinty did with Bill 16.
Your silence condones this discrimination & this slaughter. Please pull your head out of the sand or wherever it`s been stuck for the last 7 years & do SOMETHING,then please pass this blog post on to your friends,neighbours & family members.
You may not own a ‘unicorn’ but trust me you ARE impacted by this Legislation & will forever be because too many heads were in the sand when this Legislation was proposed.
We can`t reverse the legal implications of the Court Rulings but we can stop the slaughter of family pets & the discrimination against their owners.
Also don`t forget to keep a Sign in the back of your car when driving (Signs were made with 25 cent b&w Library photocopies, on yellow Bristol Board for Yellow Campaign and I used For Sale Sign for stiffening.)
and a 2nd sign in the front windshield when parked somewhere.
