Hochelaga-Maisonneuve borough, Montreal, QC, Canada: Mayor says borough may consider BSL or breed ban

En français.
Réal Ménard, mayor of the Montreal borough Hochelaga-Maisonneuve, spoke on a local talk radio about "the problem of pit bulls" in the borough. The mayor suggested that the borough may re-examine a breed-specific law or breed ban.
A translated transcript of the radio show can be read here: Montreal, Canada: Hochelaga-Maisonneuve borough considers banning pitbulls - Breed Specific Legislation
The original French audio can be heard here: Réal Ménard,maire de l'arrondissement Hochelaga-Maisonneuve:Retour sur la problématique des pitbulls dans le quartier • 98,5 fm Montréal • La puissance des mots

Residents and locals are encouraged to send polite, educational correspondence about the failures of BSL to their borough mayor and board. Ontario provides a close and significant example of a breed ban's failure and devastating fallout (and more fallout, and more fallout).
Residents are also encouraged to attend upcoming board meetings to voice their opposition to BSL. Next borough board meeting: June 7, 2011 at 19:00, House of Culture Maisonneuve, 4200, rue Ontario Est. Information: 514 872-4228. Persons wishing to participate must register under the reception desk to ask questions of their elected representatives. There are two question periods: the first deals with issues on the agenda, the second is general in nature and limited to 30 minutes. View upcoming agendas here.
