TORONTO -- With Canada's first provincewide pit bull ban taking effect next week, breeders of purebred pit bulls are either pulling up stakes or quitting the business.

It will be illegal to breed pit bulls in Ontario when the ban comes into effect on Monday.

Ann Mathews, a breeder of American Staffordshire terriers, says she's considering moving to a province that doesn't have what she calls arbitrary dog laws.

That way she can continue to breed her three female purebred pit bulls and not be required to muzzle them.

Mathews says she plans to sell her last litter of puppies to people outside the province.

Any puppy born after November 27th -- which is 90 days after the law takes effect -- must be shipped out of the province, given to a research facility or destroyed.

Attorney General Michael Bryant says he considers all pit bulls "inherently dangerous" and refuses to give an exemption to registered purebreds.

Breeders say banning pit bulls won't stop dog bites and the problem is bad owners, not bad dogs.

Great reporting, especially the part where he refers to pure bred pitbulls, where there is no such breed.

I hate Windsor. That's why my parents come up here more than we go down there.

Maybe our government should address the problem of welfare queens breeding like rabbits. One child could be a mistake any more than that while on welfare is a career choise. Free money for life. Perhaps they could spend my tax dollars on re vamping the youth offender act. Let us know who the little bas$%^s are that are roaming our streets. Bring back the death penality for scum that rape, molest kids and murder people. Get us a Governal General that is Canadian born and has no ties to the FLQ, either by assossiation or marriage. Make our laws tougher for people who abuse animals. Our tax dollars protect indangered species. What about the pit bulls? Our government has taken a Hitler attitude in canine cleansing. Hitler wanted to rid the world of Jews and our government wants to rid Ontario of all of these dogs. We no longer live in a free country, We are ruled by dictators who tell us what to do in every aspect of out lives. This is wrong on so many levels. I will support an under ground railway for all pit bulls that need help. Either by hiding them, transporting them or just fighting the law. Trust me I would have no problem going to jail rather than paying a fine. At least in jail I could get free medical and free dental. Something my tax dollars are paying for anyway.

ALL i CAN SAY IS WELL SAID AND I AGREE 100%. I personally am sick to death of my money being wasted on all the welfare bums. And I cannot even begin to tell you how much I depise the little weasle M. B.

Mine still isn't there, I didn't say anything tht could have been censored. I "sounded off hours ago!' Did you get a message after you posted or did it just show up?

I did it last night, well this morning at about 3AM and it showed up today... They just have to read it. If it's not up now, it'll probably be tomorrow morning...

I dont have any sympathy for the breeders who are now whining.Where were they before the ban when they were already filling all the shelters and being euthanized all the time?The people running Ontario rescues for Pits are not breeders,where were these people?
