UPDATE 2/23/12: Bill 16 passed second reading. Read today’s update here.
Bill 16, which would repeal the breed ban in the Canadian province of Ontario, is scheduled for a second reading on Feb 23. Supporters of the bill have planned a large rally in Queen’s Park (Toronto) on Feb 23 beginning at 11:30 am, and the bill sponsors will also be there.
We have had a major BSL repeal already this year in the U.S. (Ohio!) Please help spread the word and get supporters out in force at Queen’s Park. To have another large government pass BSL repeal in the same year would definitely make a statement, especially to those places that are considering BSL.
