Speak up against BSL on May 13

Quebec posterIt’s almost a week away! On Saturday, May 13, groups across Canada will be marching against the proposed breed ban in Quebec. In BC, you can join groups in Vancouver, Victoria, or Coquitlam. See our previous post for event details.

Below are a few resources to spread the word:

If you aren’t able to attend on Saturday, May 13, please show your solidarity by posting an educational message on social media. We will provide images for re-sharing, and we encourage you to post a thoughtful, fact-based message about BSL. Tell someone something new and unexpected about breed-specific legislation, or talk about how it’s affected you or someone you know. Please help us create a sea of solidarity for those in Quebec living in fear today.

Here are some great sources for facts and talking points around BSL:

HugABull.com (click on BSL)
DogBiteFacts.org
Montreal SPCA’s Safer Kinder Communities campaign
Animal Farm Foundation Talking Points E-Book

You can also choose to make a small donation to a rescue, advocacy, or education group working with affected dogs and families. There are several groups that are active in Quebec and we hear they are doing amazing work – but because we are far away and can’t vouch for them personally at this time, we are directing people to the Montreal SPCA’s Safer Kinder Communities campaign (visit saferkindercommunities.com and click “make a gift” in the top right corner). And of course, you can also donate to HugABull and request that your donation be directed to BSL work.
