American singer-songwriter Cyndi Lauper has been an advocate for many good and worthy causes! Her lastest has a Canadian connection. She has posted a message on her Facebook page voicing her opposition to Montreal’s newly adopted pit bull ban.
She calls it a “sad day” and an unjust bylaw.
Lauper adds, “it’s not the dog, it’s who is training and often mistreating them that should be banned” and invites opponents of the ban to sign a petition entitled “My Montreal includes all dogs” on the GoPetition online site.
The Montreal SPCA is mounting a legal challenge against the city, arguing the sections of the bylaw that specifically target pit bulls are discriminatory and contrary to Quebec’s animal-welfare laws that define animals as “sentient beings.”
What do you think about the new Montreal bylaw that bans pit bulls?
