OMG, I can't believe it. I have been following this for the last year.

The Canadian justice system has proven itself as being horribly incompetent over and over again, this shouldn't surprise me.

Yep , same here. The "accused" is someone I respects lots. Received the files by e-mail last week and had to ask her a few questions as I just couldn't understand !!!! I couldn't believe the outcome. It's just so freakin unfair !!!

You said it 14+. How does someplace that is blatantly a puppy mill win against someone trying to do the right thing. Makes as much sense as our wonderful pit bull law.

Talking

I hope that woman from Brockville knows that they got what was coming to them. http://www.globalnational.com/second...193/story.html It's so sad that for years this kennel was able to exist and the authorities not only turned a blind eye but supported them by allowing this judgement against a concerned party. I hope this makes her feel a little better. They have been shut down and will have to face charges.

This thread scared me, I thought it was saying that the kennel won a lawsuit to get the dogs back.
