The Mount Clemens City Commission voted 5-1 Monday night to remove language targeting pit bulls from a dangerous animal ordinance.
Here is a list of every Ontario MPP and how they voted at the second reading of Bill 16 (including those who didn’t vote).
Great news! Bill 16 passed its second reading today in the Ontario Legislature!
The government of New Brunswick has decided to start enforcing a law that prohibits tenants of provincial housing from owning pets, even though many of these tenants have had their animals for years.
