Target: Denis Coderre, Mayor of Montreal
Goal: Allow pit bulls to remain in the city of Montreal.
Montreal is planning on outlawing pit bulls within the city limits at the end of this year. Mayor Denis Coderre stated that all dogs resembling American Staffordshire terriers, Staffordshire bull terriers and American pit bull terriers will be included in the ban.
This impending ban has already put people in a panic. Shelters, in and out of the city, are becoming overburdened with dogs. Many dogs are being left on the side of the road due to surrender fees, and some people are moving out of the city.
Banning pit bulls is discriminatory, unfair, and wrong. Sign this petition and demand the mayor of Montreal reconsider the pit bull ban.
Dear Mayor Coderre,
You have made mention of banning all dogs resembling American Staffordshire terriers, Staffordshire bull terriers and American pit bulls within the city of Montreal only because of their breed. This potential ban is unfair and wrong.
Many people are in a state of panic because of this impending ban. Shelters in and out of Montreal are becoming even more crowded than they already are due to families forced to surrender their loving, family dogs. Many people have even dropped their dogs off at the side of the road due to surrender fees.
The ban is causing more problems than it would solve. Please reconsider banning pit bulls from the city. These dogs should not face extra hardships just because of their breed.
[Your Name Here]
