BSL Update from Randy Hillier

PC MPP Randy Hillier sent out an update today. The House is now back and the bi-elections are over. McGuinty and his minions are still in a minority therefore we continue to push forward for Bill 16 to be brought up for 3rd and final reading. Bill 16 will repeal BSL in Ontario. 

Here is Randy's update;

BSL update
At the end of last session, we saw that the governing party has no interest in repealing Ontario's breed specific legislation or improving the current Dog Owner's Liability Act. You can catch a full video of that committee here
I know I haven't had any good news to report on this front, but after last week, I do have some. The voters denied the Premier a majority. As long as the governing party doesn't have a majority, we can still get rid of BSL in Ontario. Now that the Legislature is coming back, it's time to put the pressure on our elected representatives. If you haven't already, make sure to sign the petition to end breed specific legislation in Ontario. It can be found here. I hope to have some positive news soon for you!

In addition to signing the petition, please contact your MPP and simply ask that they push for Bill 16 to be brought forward for 3rd reading. 

Also please email Dalton McGuinty and demand Bill 16 be brought forward. 

You do not have to go into detail, but simply state what you want. 

If you live in a riding held by either PC or NDP, please don't let your MPP feel left out. Please ask them to encourage the Liberal House leader, John Milloy, to bring Bill 16 for 3rd reading, and ask for their continued support and vote when the Bill comes up.

Please also email Dwight Duncan (Deputy Premier), John Milloy (Liberal House Leader), Jim Wilson (PC House Leader) and Gilles Bisson (NDP House Leader) asking for Bill 16 to be brought forward for 3rd reading.

Please also send an email note to Cheri DiNovo, Randy Hillier and Kim Craitor to let them know we haven't gone anywhere over the summer. We are still waiting with great anticipation, to live in our province without discrimination against our dog/s appearance. 

I would also like to invite you to our twitter campaign to push for Bill 16 to be brought to third reading. You can follow me @Brindlestick 

Hang in BSL Freedom Fighters! We must take our campaign to a higher level,  ramp up and work together to tighten the pressure on the McGuinty Liberals.




  1. I can not wait for the day when we can take to the streets with our FREE dogs and celebrate an end to this barbaric archaic law!

  2. We will stop stand idility by and watch our children LEARN how to discriminate and profile based on appearance. DAMN the media hype. We will not stand by and let thousands of good responsible citizens be turned into 3rd class citizenship with NO recourse in law. This horrible, biased, prejudiced, darconian law MUST be struck down and it can't come soon enough.

  3. I cannot wait either! Fair and equal treatment under the law is all we want!
