Thanks for posting this Akeeter! It was the funniest thing I have seen in a long time! When he was told about the fact that Italy now has 92 breeds added to their original pit bull ban, all he could say was, "Uh, well, this worked in Winnepeg and Kitchner/Waterloo so I think it'll work for the provence of Ontario." HAHAHAHA!!! What a moron! Does he not realize that Winnepeg is a city, not a whole province?? He should be comparing the stats in places like Italy and the UK. Places that are bigger with more occupants, not Kitchener/Waterloo!!! Geez! I can't believe he couldn't even pick out the pit bull, and then said it was a trick! What a joke!

Thumbs down "It worked in Kit/Wat., huh?" - No it didn't.

Dog bite stats didn't improve. Just Pit Bull bite stats went down. And I think Rottis went up?? And after that 'explanation' I posted last week..I'm Fuming!

After all the florid talk, & scare tactics, And...a 'scary movie' about Pit Bulls in the Kit/Wat presentation..All it was about, according to 1 of the principal mover & shakers (statement given 2 years after BSL) was a bunch of teenagers following older people around downtown with dogs to get them to 'hurry up'. No blood, no gore, or shredded Grannies or kids. Just a bunch of smart aleck kids & their dogs! Who could have been told to Go Home , by the local police. (or been charged with being a public nuisance, disturbing the peace, etc, etc.)

If you look under "Raw" at Pulse 24 they have the unedited version!!
I was laughing so loud at what a moron he made himself out to be!!!
I thought it interesting that he said "I am not a dog expert.." yadayada, then why is he making statements such as "inherently dangerous", "locking jaw mechanism", "ticking time-bomb"????
They said there will be a follow up tonight on Pulse 24 at 6pm. Can't wait to see Alex go after this issue!
Hope other MPPs saw this. Maybe we should send them a link?

ok. I must be stupid. I can't find it (CP24 has the most un-user friendly website. They really need to redesign it!)

Here's a more direct link for you raingirl!

Dumb arse Bryant


When I saw her piece on the news last night I almost jumped out off the couch. She did a fantastic job in covering alot of the issues that dog owners are facing.

Michael Bryant has no idea what he's trying to implement. He has no facts or educated answers to any of the questions asked... he can only reiterate Winnipeg and Kitchener have bans and these dogs are "inherently dangerous". I wish she could have made Bryant meet face to face with a pit bull and see his reaction!!

WTG Alex, wonderful work!

That was priceless!!!! I applaud City TV for taking this on. I know there is a guy who lives around the corner from me, works for City TV, and he has two brindle pitbulls.

She was great and he was a back peddling arse. I am so glad they gave him that pit bull test and moved the picture. What did he think everyone is as stupid as him and they would not move the pictures around. Well the liberals should be very proud of their representation on this matter I would definitely take someone seriously that could not answer the questions except with stock answers. Maybe next time if they let him in front of a camera again they might give him some information that is true so a reporter does not make him look like the idiot he is. Do you think the guy off to the side could have paced and looked more worried if he tried, and trying to step in and say that they need to get going and she just kept on questioning. I sent her a really nice thank you and let her know that there are many of us who would be willing to send her pages of facts and information if she needs anything to knock him and his credibility down a few more notches.
