Following announcements by officials proposing breed-specific legislation in the province of Quebec, Quebec City, Montreal and Brossard, CKC has contacted Quebec policy makers to offer our expertise and assistance in the development of legislation that is reasonable, enforceable and non-discriminatory.
As a result, CKC, represented by Linda St-Hilaire, CKC Board Director for Quebec, will be meeting with Ministre Coiteux cabinet staff and Patrick Voyer from Ville de Quebec in the next week.
CKC supports appropriate dangerous dog legislation that serves to protect the public and opposes breed-specific legislation—which penalizes the breed and not the deed.
