Watched the news at 6 p.m. and the latest poll from CTV said 48% FOR banning and 52% opposed! This is very good news!!

Having had my dog attacked 3 days ago totally unprovoked by a pit bull, I'm in favor of the ban. Only good thing is I managed to put the pit bull into the vet hospital with a good swift kick of my steel toed hiking boots, saving my dogs life in the process. it could have just as easily been a child. This breeed is dangerous & should be banned. These dogs attract irresponsible owners for the most part.

Was this dog attached to a leash, or running around loose? And there is no possible way it could have been any other mixed breed of dog besides a "pit bull"? Would you feel the same way about banning the breed if it had been a labrador retriever that had attacked your dog?

I know of many "pit bull" owners who have well trained dogs that do therapy work and quite frankly, I think it is unfair to punish the majority for the irresponsiblity of the minority.
