If passed on September 26, the city's new bylaw will be implemented unfairly. Only owners of dogs that are or resemble pit bull-types must prove that they have no criminal record of violence in order to keep their pets, albeit under closely controlled conditions. Framing owners of such dogs as potential criminals in this way can help to constitute the very problem Montreal seeks to eliminate.

Montreal's city council is expected to pass a bylaw later this month that will ban pit bulls and similar breeds by the end of the year.
The city plans to phase out the animals completely.
Many of the protesters called for tougher penalties for irresponsible owners and enforcement of existing regulations including leashing and licensing.

Dogs that already live in the city will be allowed to stay.
Politicians shouldn't wait. Because if they do, adults and children will keep being attacked in their homes and elsewhere. And the pit bull lobby, so desperate to keep the public on side, will fiddle as they bleed.
