Pit Bull rally and Canine Good Neighbours

I had wanted to go to this rally at Queen's Park but was out of town. Looks like they had a decent turnout.

From Wag The Dog!:

To help the Dog Legislation Council of Canada continue its work in trying to overturn BSL in Ontario, they are holding a Canine Good Neighbour Certification test:


The Dog Legislation Council of Canada is offering a Canine

Good Neighbor Day at the Beeton Fair September 19th, 2009.

Canadian Kennel Club certificate test - conducted by a CKC CGN Evaluator.

Fee for CGN is $35.00 per dog.

Considering this event was put on in 6 weeks the turn out was awesome. Everyone who attended talked about how powerful the rally/protest was.

I heard that John and the new channel "fightTV" come out initially to do a "farce" on the event. After meeting the dogs, the people and hearing the nightmare stories they turned it around to what you see here. Kudo's to them for "getting it".

Hope to see YOU at the BIG rally/protest on August 29th, 2010
HINT hint. You have enough notice now so PLEASE do NOT be "out of town"?
