6 thoughts on “City of Montreal Wins Appeal; Quebec Court of Appeal Overturns Lower Court's Suspension of Pit Bull Ban Bylaw

  1. This information was not available yesterday, "MONTREAL—Quebec’s highest court announced Friday it will deliberate and render a written decision shortly on the City of Montreal’s request to overturn the suspension of its bylaw banning pit bulls and similar breeds."

    Shortly may mean a week away… Certainly before the holidays.

  2. Exactly. This should not be in a court of law. The lower court judge set off this circus and will ultimately be overruled. Remember how far Denver had to go? They never backed down either. Legal challenges have simply been exhausted at this point in Denver, and along the way, the city [via beating these legal challenges] set new precedents in support of municipalities restricting pit bulls. Though tiresome, the SPCA's lawsuit, might actually gain more ground for cities in the long run.
