Petition to Repeal the Ontario Breed Ban


Feb 10, 2008


Brilliant. And leaving aside the luxury of early retirement, I find myself in much the same position. Ive been infuriated by an uninformed, uncaring goverment...stimulated by people protesting an unfounded, unjust, vague and shoddy law...and heartened by those who have been informed and joined the fight.
Im on this train to the end of the line.

Ditto Mr Minister
In memory of Mac
You stole 2+ years of our time together.
I should have been throwing the frisbee to him instead of doing this.
Jamie MacDonald
I will fight this legislation till the day I die.

And I should add that
not only did you steal the companionship with my dog,you have stolen my life!
This has become my life from the time I wake up until the time I go to bed.

You have also destroyed the life of the lady seen

As we watch them argue about leaving or pulling troops and asking NATO for 1000 extra troops to bring democracy to Afghanistan,I wonder if any of them care about the loss of democracy in the Province of Ontario?
Who`s fighting for the rights of Squibs Mercier?
You better ask for 2000 more troops Mr Harper.
You might need them in Ontario when war breaks out here.
You might want to start paying more attention to the rights of Canadian Citizens.
When the Federal Election is called,please hold Federal Members
If you can only remember one name,
make it SQUIBS!
Ask them who`s fighting for her democratic rights in Canada?

Very well put Caveat!
We all have lost the last 4 to 5 years of our lives, fighting a bloody war. For what purpose? Because an irrational, fear mongering, self serving government decided it would be a great photo-op to strip dog owners of their rights in this province? It makes me sick to think a half cocked Minister, who has the power, can take advantage of that power to step on the underdogs of this province. People who pay their taxes and contribute to the society of this province but choose to own a dog that fits the description of some mythical object of fear mongering.
I sure hope karma exists! If so, Im afraid you are in for one hell of a ride Mr. Minister. I do believe everyone must be accountable for their actions. The laws of nature or the universe will likely take care of your actions, but in the meantime we are sticking it to you.
I believe we will win this. The reason I believe we will win is we have a huge weapon on our side. It is called truth! I remain focused on the belief that in the end, the truth will prevail. We are not going to sit back and watch the likes of you strip our province/country of what it was built on. Does land of the free ring any bells for you Mr. Minister? How about paying for ones actions, instead of the masses paying for the actions of few…

[quote]Dear Jamie MacDonald:
On behalf of the Right Honourable Stephen Harper, I would like to acknowledge receipt of your e-mail.
While you may be assured that careful consideration has been given to the situation you have described, the matter you have raised does not fall within the jurisdiction of the federal government. You would be best advised, therefore, to pursue your enquiries with the appropriate provincial authority.
I regret that I am unable to provide you with a more favourable response.

Brilliant, indeed. If I could write this well, Id quit my day job. Deserves permanent linkage, if you ask me.

Why do such things with passion bring tears to my eyes? Damn it. Do you think they can teach me to be heartless?

It breaks my heart that for every one of us who learned about this issue, there are four more who still truly believe that our breeds deserve to be banned for being vicious.
It breaks my heart that the two largest animal rights organizations in the world still dont consider Pit Bulls to be deserving of rights.
It breaks my heart that, unless things change soon, were in the last days of some of the most noble breeds to ever exist.

I cant see to read another line, what has gone wrong with my eyes anyway? .
I have NEVER read anything that awakened my soul as to how exactly I feel. Caveat, YOU ARE AMAZING. You have taken what MANY of us think but have not the skills to put to either words or paper. When first reading this letter I just kept on saying AMEN. AMEN. AMEN ...but then it got deeper then even that. You reached into the furthest region of my soul and then, through my rage, my anger, my anguish, my grief, your words made my spirit soar and my heart sing, I became an eagle my soul set free to fly again. WHY, because until I read this letter I was not sure if we would win this battle. NOW, as my spirit soars and my heart sings, I realize, it is just a matter of time.
WE WILL NEVER QUIT, WE WILL NEVER GIVE UP. Wintston Churchill once said something like.. history would say this about that. He then said he knew it because he would write that history. WELL Caveat, what YOU have written in this letter will one day be factual History! I myself wrote Bryant and told him that what he was doing would prove to be a sad legacy to him and his career if he proceeded with the Ban.
It is true. It is true. OUR pain will one day desolve into total joy. Im getting up and doing a jig.

wonderful, as always, just amazing! whenever i need a pick me up, breath of fresh air, a kick in the pants to keep going its here in your fantastic righting, incredible spirit and drive to continue fighting the good fight.
Thanks for being you!
Em & "the zoo"

Gee, thanks guys, Im speechless...well, not really. Just thanks for the kind words.

PLEASE NEVER get speechless. What would we do without the "acid" tongue and that sharp wit. OH and whatever you do take care of those firing fingers.
