Does anybody have any actual statistics as to the number of registered show dogs in Ontario? I find it hard to believe there are only five. If they do, please send this to as many media outlets as possible, and not just letters to the editor, but to the actual news desks as well.

We need to contact the editors with all links and articles that show his lack of facts in the stuff he is spouting. I just emailed citypulse and said that if anybody will go after the tough stories it is them that is why I sent them a request to go after the whole truth and not just the MB story. I said they need to speak to the THS regarding the petition with 8000 names on it opposing the ban. Hit them with the hard questions and see if they rise to the challenge

I think if anyone has stats or facts to dispute anything he is saying, definitely get it out to any media you can. If he's willing to hand the rope, the least we can do is tie the noose.

i sent cp24 a correction to one of their articles and they corrected it. it was regarding the BSL in Denver, and I pointed out the bill gov owen passed in April (even though denver's fightin' it).

alot of journalists have acutally been debunking him. walkom's written two articles. sheesh even the np had an article debunking him. the only paper that seems to support him fully is the sun.

That was one of the things that surprised me was the National Post opposed the ban and the Sun supports it. The Sun is the one I thought would be opposing this on the front page. Not that I read that paper it is so poorly written. It is more of a tabloid than a newspaper.

The Sun does not support it - read the editor's responses to letters and editorials.
