Reply from Barrett

Great reply guys. Our emails are working. Thank you LORD!


On behalf of MPP Toby Barrett, I would like to take this opportunity to

thank you for your e-mail with regard to pit bull legislation. Mr.

will not be supporting this bill -- he does not feel that the
legislation is

effective, nor will it solve the issues that the Liberal government has

this specific breed.

Mr. Barrett encourages his constituents who do not feel the legislation

just to write letters to the editor, to Attorney General Michael Bryant

members of the Ontario Liberal Government. If you require mailing

please do not hesitate to contact our office at: 519-428-0446 or


Once again, thank you for taking time to apprise Mr. Barrett of your

thoughts and feelings.


Bobbi Ann, EA

Office of MPP Toby Barrett

Might as well throw this response in too that I got today:

Attacks by vicious dogs have become a serious public issue that needs to be addressed. We need to consider all of the options in the debate. I do not believe that banning the breed is fair, nor does it address the problem.

We in the NDP look forward to participating fully in the debate to find the best solutions to this complex problem, and I appreciate your information.
