It is pretty obvious that Bryant is not listening to the experts , the media or the people of Ontario other than the pitbull victims and certainly not to the victims of dog attacks other than pitbulls .
I wonder how Courney Thorn's parents{Stouffiville girl killed by Matiff in 98 or 99} are feeling at this point in time ? Knowing that the government is ignoring the fact that almost any large breed can attack and kill and is blindly persuing banning one breed in the interest of public safety .It must be like their daughter died in vain .
What of the postal worker attacked by a large male Rotweiler this week in Orillia . She said she thought she was going to die as the dog had her head in its mouth . What does Bryant think she is just a whiner ?

Politicians don't want to hear the opposition's side, because they make up their minds what they think will get them the most votes. At my city council's meeting the following people were there to speak out against the ban: a dog trainer with 50 yrs. experience,someone from the humane society,a person who runs a dog rescue,a veternarian,other breed clubs + all the pit owners who have experience with the breed etc,etc.Plus all the pit owners did their research on bite stats,what dog behaviourists have to say on the breed, etc.These politicians have no experience with various breeds of dogs and yet they will ban a breed of dog they have not even interacted with. :confused:

Apparently Courtney's parents are quite upset that Bryant has talked to them at all. I would love to see a paper interview them!

As for the attack in Orillia, I would send that to every media outlet asking where the coverage is, and to every MPP.
