The Montreal SPCA maintains that there are proven ways to reduce the incidence and severity of dog bites and create safer and kinder communities for all. If the city of Montreal truly wanted to ensure public safety, it would not have forced a rushed adoption of controversial legislation which is unfair, unenforceable, and, most importantly, ineffective. We are currently continuing to engage in discussions with our borough partners and are exploring all potential avenues.
