End the Pit bull Ban in Ontario

This petition had 2,349 supporters

As all dogs are, a pit bull's behaviour is dictated by the way it was trained; they are a product of their environment. Even so, individuals are quick to place the blame on the dog in light of an incident, rather than the individual who taught it aggressive behaviour. Since the ban on pit bulls was enacted in 2005, it has shown that pit bull bites have gone down. Despite this, overall dog bites have continued to rise. Given this, it should be clear that the breed is not the problem. In other words, the ban should be amended to exclude the specific ban on pit bulls, and instead owners of pit bulls should have the obligation to obtain special licenses and be subject to a stricter background check to ensure the placement of the breed in a caring, loving home.
