Trading breed specific legislation for bylaws that work

Richmond BC has breed specific legislation (BSL) to regulate (albeit unsuccessfully) what are termed dangerous dogs.  These dogs are identified only as bully breeds, and bylaws are not based in any fact or statistics about these breeds.  Obviously this puts restrictions on a large number of dogs and owners that have done nothing wrong, and ignores owners who have put their animals in inappropriate situations leading to animal aggression.

Luckily the Hugabull Advocacy and Rescue Society is hosting seminars for city councilors and animal control and shelter workers to learn about a successful alternative to BSL.  Please check out this wonderful event.
