MPP Randy Hillier today introduced a bill that would repeal Ontario’s breed ban. The bill is co-sponsored by MPPs Cheri DiNovo and Kim Craitor.
I believe this bill is identical to last year’s “Hershey’s Bill,” which was championed by DiNovo. The new bill number is Bill 16. You may read the text here: http://www.ontla.on.ca/web/bills/bills_detail.do?locale=en&Intranet&BillID=2552
The newly filed bill is significant because each of its co-sponsors is from a different major Canadian political party; it demonstrates tri-partisan support for repeal of the breed ban. There is a second hearing for this bill scheduled for February 2012.
