BSL - Reporter Christie Lagally gets it right!

Reporter and animal welfare champion Christie Lagally has published an eye-opening column in the Richmond News. She points out the failures of breed-specific legislation (currently in place in Richmond) and the demonstrated success of the Calgary model.

The good news is that many city councillors have taken notice and will be present at next week's event on better dog legislation. We've had a tremendous response from the public as well, and all seats are full!

However, we are saving a few last spots for last-minute RSVPs from city council and media, so it's not too late to contact your city policy makers and request that they attend - particularly if you live in Burnaby, Chilliwack, Pitt Meadows, Langley, North Van, or Delta. We have no RSVPs from these cities to date.

Please take a few minutes to make your voice heard! It does make a difference.
