Ontario Constitutional Challenge - May 15 and 16

Press release from Clayton Ruby on May 8 announcing the dates for the constitutional challenge.


FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

PRESS ADVISORY

What?: Constitutional Challenge to Ontario's Pit Bull Legislation

Where?: Superior Court of Justice, Toronto, Ontario

When?: Monday, May 15, 2006 and Tuesday, May 16, 2006, beginning at 10:00 a.m.

Why?: Because Canadians do not imprison dog owners based on vague and overbroad legislation

On August 29, 2005 new amendments to the Dog Owners' Liability Act came into effect banning the ownership of pit bulls in Ontario.

Ms Catherine Cochrane, with the support of the Banned Aid Coalition, filed an application seeking to strike down the new law as unconstitutional. Ms Cochrane is represented by Clayton Ruby.

On Monday, May 15 and Tuesday, May 16, 2006 the constitutional challenge will be heard at the Superior Court of Justice in Toronto, Ontario beginning at 10:00 a.m. Mr. Ruby will argue that the law is vague and overbroad.
