Bill 128: Quebec Backs Down On Its Pit Bull Ban

QUEBEC, Canada – It’s back to the drawing board for Quebec’s provincial breed-specific dangerous dog ban.

Public Security Minister Martin Coiteux said the government plans to go ahead with its animal control bylaw, but it won’t be targeting pit bulls.

Originally, Bill 128 was set to ban a list of dogs considered to be “potentially dangerous,” including pit bulls, American Staffordshire terriers, bull terriers, Rottweilers, and cross-bred or hybrid dogs.

Last week, Public Security Minister Martin Coiteux insisted Bill 128 would be passed before the end of the legislative session next Friday.

He insisted a law on dangerous dogs may still be passed in the six remaining days of the session, but it would not ban specific breeds like pit bull-types or Rottweilers.

Coiteux said Wednesday there was no consensus on whether breed-specific bans are safer for the population.
