Enough is ENOUGH!
SILENCE IMPLIES ACCEPTANCE ~ Demand our rights are upheld!
Host: Petition to the SCC to hear the “Pit Bull” Ban Appeal
Date: Saturday, June 20, 2009
Time: 2:00pm – 6:00pm
Location: Toronto: Queens Park, Ottawa: The Supreme Court Building
Email: email@example.com — end.bsl.now @ gmail.com (no spaces)
On Thursday June 11 the Supreme Court of Canada made the decision to deny our appeal of Bill 132 (BSL, “Pit Bull” Ban). This is a democratic country. We have the right to have this appeal heard! The goal of this group is to petition the SCC to hear the case. Too much time, money and effort has gone into this fight to stop now. One way or another we WILL get the ban overturned. Right now the most important thing is that we all stick together and stand up for what is RIGHT! We will petition and protest this decision. This isn’t just about “Pit Bull” owners. This is not just about dog owners. This is about our rights as citizens of this province, as residents of this country. We promote responsible dog ownership, NOT breed bans. Together we CAN change this!
We need to take to the streets in every city and town across this province and stand together to DEMAND change. We have a voice and we WILL use it!
Main locations will be in Toronto and Ottawa.
In Toronto: Queens Park
In Ottawa: The Supreme Court Building
If any of our brothers and sisters in the Ottawa area can assist with coordination of the protest there it would be forever appreciated. Just shoot me an email @ firstname.lastname@example.org
Oppression is all of our CONCERN!!
“First they came for the communists, and I did not speak out – because I was not a communist.
Then they came for the socialists, and I did not speak out – because I was not a socialist.
They came next for the trade unionists, and I did not speak out – because I was not a trade unionist.
Then they came for the Jews – and I did not speak out because I am not Jewish.
Then they came for me – and there was no one left to speak out for me.” – Pastor Martin Niemoeller
Think YOUR dog is safe?
Help end BSL and overturn Bill 132
We need this Liberal government to know that we are not going to take this anymore! There is strength in numbers and every single one of us has a responsibility to fight this. It’s been a long 5 years and it’s not over yet. Remember: Silence implies acceptance. We need EVERYONE out at these protests. They think that not enough of us care. They think we will eventually go away. Well do we? Are we? It’s up to you. We MUST keep fighting!!!
We don’t have a choice.
