Hi question is this a no dog walk or can you bring dogs. Asking because so much of the park is off leash. I think if you can bring dogs they should be on leash because it could get a little tense with so many dogs. And my selfish reason for asking is that I usually take Bud to high park for a couple of hours on the Sunday and we could kill 2 birds with 1 stone figurativley speaking

Sorry let me give those who have not been there before directions to dog hill.
If you enter off Bloor Street at High Park Avenue if driving follow the road all the way around it will feel like you are heading back you are, when you get to the restaurant on your left side follow the curve around and park anywhere around this area which on weekends can be quite a task. On the right side you will see some wire fences follow the path in between them and you are at dog hill also the large amount of dogs going there will be easy to spot. If you are walking in follow the road but walk down the side so the traffic is coming at you it will save you a lot of time just look on your left side you will pass the pool and tennis courts they will be on your right but before the restaurant on your left.

I would strongly suggest that this be a people only event...it would be less stressful if there were no dogs...you never know what might happen or set one of the dogs off..

Actually I called Ryan just to double check and he said he would prefer it to be no dogs also but knows that some people will join the walk that are there with there dogs.

Bryant and/or his ilk made a comment in the legislature about the last protest being dog-free. He stated that it added to the proof that owners viewed their own pitbulls as unpredictable, and proved his point.

I think we can all agree that Bryant is a "moron."

I called his office today and spoke to some poor woman who works in the office and said I would like to speak to him she said he is very busy. I said so am I, and excuse me but I along with the rest of the people of this city pay his salary so why is it he cant take my call and will not respond to the countless email I have sent him? She said he is very busy and I said I know lying and not getting his facts straight. But I want to know what he is going to do about the harrassment that I as a dog owner recieve when I am taking my dog for a walk. First thing out her mouth was do you own a pit bull I said my dog does not even resemble a pit bull and even if it did that is not the point. I don't think I should have to fear for my dog and myself when I take him out. She agreed that my safety should not be at risk. So what is he going to do about the mob mentality that he has created because if something happens to myself or my dog I will hold him and the rest of the lying liberal responsible and they will be receiving my vet bills. I want to know how do you reach this guy I want to talk to him she could not give me an answer. So my parting line was I guess we will get his home address and go and talk to him in person, she would not suggest this and giggled so at least his employees realize he is an idiot too. These people just work in the office and are there permanently even when the parties change so they have no affiliation to this ididot. But I think we need to start calling and saying that we want to talk to him. We do pay his salary too bad we cant fire him

Just out of curiousity, did she mention why she wondered if it was a pit bull? I'm wondering if it came from a "Well, maybe it deserves it", or more of a trying to understand why point of view.

No I think it was curiousity she didn't have that attitude in her voice. You know the one well its your own fault

Glad to hear that. (I'm feeling a little sensitive these days for some reason. I think too much overtime, not enough gym)
