ONTARIO BSL ALERT! SUPPORT BILL 147!
ALL MEMBERS and anyone else who owns a Staffordshire Bull Terrier, an American Staffordshire Terrier or a "Pit Bull" should be aware that we are still battling BSL in Ontario.
There is a Private Members Bill (Bill 147) awaiting for third reading hopefully in June of this year to amend the legislation to remove any wording related to specific breeds.
Please go to https://www.ola.org/en/legislative-business/bills/parliament-42/session-1/bill-147 for further information.
It's crucial that you CONTACT your personal MPP via a letter (snail mail) and ask that they support Bill 147. Add in your personal reasons why this is so important.
Due to the COVID pandemic and the uncertainty of whether or not Exhibitors, Judges and Show committees would be safe, the 2021 Specialty is postponed until 2022. We regret postponing our Specialty again, but the health and safety of our community is paramount.
