BSL: Ontario Moves To Ban Labrador Retrievers

In other commentary, I found a pointer to this timely read ONTARIO MOVES TO BAN LABRADOR RETRIEVERS.

Here's a bit from it:
". . .the Attorney General said: "The public wants to be protected from dangerous dogs. The public supported the pit bull ban because they knew it was time to get dangerous dogs off our streets and out of our parks and backyards. The precedent has been set, our ban is working and it's time to look at other types of dogs involved in large numbers of bites and attacks."

As to whether it would be put to a vote in the Legislature or if public hearings would be held as they were for the pit bull ban, the response was: "We went through a vote, we had public hearings and we remained convinced that banning pit bulls was the right thing to do. The law allows the government to add any breeds or mixed breeds to its list of prohibited dogs without consultation. Municipalities have that authority as well."
Be sure that you read the link at the end of the above blog article. ;)

Timely! Actually I don't see it as bad parody at all, in fact on first reading, I thought.. "Well, but of course!!" :X

"In Germany, the Nazis first came for the communists, and I didn't speak up because I wasn't a communist. Then they came for the Jews, and I didn't speak up because I wasn't a Jew. Then they came for the trade unionists, and I didn't speak up because I wasn't a trade unionist. Then they came for the Catholics, and I didn't speak up because I was a Protestant. Finally they came for me, but there was not one left to speak up."
