CKC Shows Support for Montreal SPCA Legal Challenge to Breed Specific Legislation

Since breed-specific legislation was first proposed in Quebec and municipalities such as Montreal earlier this year, CKC has been working to affect positive change at the provincial and municipal level.

CKC opposes fear-based breed-specific legislation in favour of well-crafted dangerous dog legislation that is reasonable, enforceable and non-discriminatory. We believe that public awareness and education, stronger enforcement of existing bylaws and stiffer penalties for irresponsible owners is more effective at protecting the public.

In the spirit of collaboration, we have also reached out to like-minded organizations such as the Dog Legislation Council of Canada and the Montreal SPCA to build on our shared interests and mutual goals regarding BSL.

As you may know, the Montreal SPCA launched a lawsuit against the City of Montreal following the implementation of a breed-specific bylaw in September, seeking a judicial review and stay, to suspend the breed-specific provisions until a hearing on the merits could take place in Quebec’s Superior Court.  Despite a successful, though temporary stay, the breed-specific provisions of the bylaw were recently reinstated, but the Montreal SPCA plans to continue its efforts to fight the discriminatory Montreal bylaw and a hearing is expected sometime in the new year.

During recent discussions with the Montreal SPCA, CKC offered to promote their legal challenge and would like to ask our members to help CKC support this important initiative. For more information about how you can help, visit www.saferkindercommunities.com.
