Mike Schreiner supports review of pit bull ban

October 8, 2019

“The Green Party of Ontario has long opposed breed-specific legislation that discriminates against certain dog breeds in the face of scientific evidence.

We know the best way to protect public safety is a community-based approach focused on responsible breeding, pet ownership and training.

Breed-specific laws are simply not as effective at reducing the incidence of bites and they result in the unnecessary euthanasia of hundreds of dogs and puppies.

I stand with the many groups, including humane societies and the Ontario Veterinary Medical Association, who oppose breed-specific legislation.

I support a review of the Dog Owners Liability Act to look at the possibility of repealing the anti-pitbull elements.”
