Don’t Sentence Pit Bulls to Death and Abandonment

Pit Bull Hugo A. Quintero

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.

  1. It’s ironic that the law can be so ignorant and unjust when it comes to animals. So cruel of them to tear apart families. As a result, countless innocent dogs are now in dire situations as pet owners are being forced to give up their beloved pets leaving them broken hearted. Thumbs down for you Denis Coderre, Mayor of Montreal

  2. A better idea – let’s ban the “breed” of the FRENCH, instead. We’ll dump them outside of the provincial border, into the U.S.! (and they can take jars of their sickening foix gras with them, too) Coderre is obviously another blithering ignoramus, with NO understanding of or education in the utter FOLLY and detrimental harm of Breed-Specific Legislation…much LESS any true compassion! Mon tabarnaque!

  3. Why isn’t there a law that irresponsible people cannot own ANY animal because ANY dog can bite. WAKE UP

  4. Laura Dollard says:

    Murdering & eradicating a species due to prejudice born of ignorance & fear is irational & just plain wrong. If M Coderre is so afraid, let HIM pack up & follow the 401 to Ontario. They already have a senseless ban & HE can afford to move at the drop of a hat.
    1 or 2 attacks does not warrant abandoning & murdering the thousands of pibbles who never hurt anyone. Can’t these elected officials do the simple math?!

    I’ve heard Canada is a civilized country. Looks like it was a lie.
