I am doing research on aggressive dogs for a news story. I need to speak with people who are trying to get certain breeds of dogs banned. I have already spoken to people who don't support this view. I am looking for Canadian responses only.

You are on the WRONG board.
I've been here a while...It seems to me people in this forum don't believe in the premise of your story at all.
All your story will do will get innocent dogs put down.
A dog bites man story...not original at all but always provocative.
Now an interesting story would be Banning aggressive people from having dogs. Or stupid parents who leave dogs and small children unsupervised, the child gets bitten...and it's the dog's fault. Yes then let's ban the whole breed. STUPIDITY!
Are you sure the research is for CTV and not Jerry Springer?
Shame on You for not checking out the pulse of this group before posting.
I hope no-one one this board helps this reporter, who will ultimately hurt the lives of many dogs.

It seems I should have been more clear in my request. I am speaking with people on BOTH sides of the issue. I already have several people lined up for our program that hold the same opinion as you-- it all boils down to responsible ownership. But to be a responsible storyteller, I am required to tell BOTH sides of the story, not just one. That's why I am looking for someone who believes in banning breeds. I am not saying it's right. I am just trying to get the other view point. And the responses I have gotten so far have been very helpful to my research.
