CANINE RACISM

Racism, Doggie-Style

Currently, Ontario legislation identifies Staffordshire bull terriers, American Staffordshire terriers, American pit bull terriers, and "a dog that has the appearance . . . substantially similar to any of those dogs," warrant being banned, or killed. To put the above in human terms, that's akin to deciding guilt on the basis of appearance, not behaviour: It's a Ku Klux Klan law.
