save ontario's dogs! anti-bsl rally next weekend in coronation park
On Sunday, August 29, join people who love dogs and hate bigotry for Ontario's largest anti-breed-specific-legislation (BSL) rally ever.
August 29 is the five-year anniversary of the day Ontario's unjust, ignorant BSL law went into effect. It is also the day before the five-year anniversary of our move to Canada. Because of that timing, our Buster was a criminal before his paws ever touched Ontario land, simply because of who his parents were and what he looked like. See this old post: "why bigoted breed-specific laws must be repealed, or how ontario laws almost ruined my life".
If you are in the area and love dogs, come to Toronto's Coronation Park and hear how you can help repeal this awful law.
WHEN: Sunday, August 29, 12:00 noon
WHERE: Coronation Park, Lakeshore Boulevard west of Bathurst, Toronto
WHAT: SAVE ONTARIO'S DOGS! A day of entertainment, information and education in support of Hershey's Law.
Come learn more about what Hershey's Law means for Dogs in Ontario and how Calgary has become the most successful city for bite reduction with NO BSL!
Featuring: Ontario MPP Cheri DiNovo, Bill Bruce of Calgary Animal Services, music, Canine Good Neighbour Testing, Agility Course, and more.
In the evening, there will be a candlelight vigil at Queen’s Park.
The event is sponsored by Stop Canine Profiling and The Dog Legislation Council of Canada.
