Mayor Denis Coderre says existing pit bull owners will be allowed to keep their dogs - CBC.ca

Friday, September 2, 2016

Pointe-aux-Trembles home June 8. Police believe she was mauled by a pit bull.  Her family has since been calling for a ban on the dogs. They gathered Saturday Saint-Cyrille de Wendover, near Drummondville, Que., for Vadnais's funeral.  Montreal's planned legislation will be designed to deal with pit bulls in the short term while being broad enough to cover other types of dangerous dogs, Coderre said. "There is a situation regarding pit bulls that demands public authorities to take a stand," Coderre said. Coderre did not clarify how the city would define a dangerous dog, other than to say that pit bulls would be among the breeds singled out. In April, four Montreal suburbs announced plans to deal with dangerous dogs, which they defined as: Bites, tries to bite, attacks or tries to attack a person or another animal. While off its owner's property, manifests aggression towards a person or an animal by snarling, growling, showing its teeth, barking ferociously or acting in any way that suggests the dog may bite or attack. Publicity campaign In the meantime, Coderre said the city will begin a publicity campaign to ensure dog owners are aware of their responsibilities. Dog owners are already supposed to register their animals with the city, but out of an estimated 145,000 dogs living in the city just under 14 per cent (20,123) are currently registered. Dog owners are also supposed to inform the city if their dog bites someone. Between 2014 and 2016, 637 dog bites were reported to the city. The city will hire more inspectors in order to increase patrols of the city this summer to ensure dog owners are respecting current municipal regulations. The body of Christiane Vadnais, left, was discovered in her backyard after she was mauled by what police believe was a pit bull. (Facebook) SPCA opposition Montreal's SPCA criticized Coderre's proposal. They said it opens the door to banning specific breeds, which they say "supports the false premise that dogs that happen to look a certain way are inherently 'dangerous.'" The SPCA considers breed-specific legislation a form of discrimination. It warned that such policies could lead to the deaths of otherwise well-behaved dogs. "We are not going to let that happen here," Nicholas Gilman, the group's executive director, said in a news release.   The SPCA said it is exploring options about how to prevent the ban from coming into effect, including legal challenges.  "We know that the Montreal community understands that using hysteria, fear and prejudice as a means to push legislation ...

A list of terrorist incidents and attacks in Canada - National Post

She is set to undergo a court-ordered mental health assessment.Jan. 29, 2017: Six men were killed and others injured after a shooting at a Quebec City mosque. Alexandre Bissonnette, 27, is facing six counts of first-degree murder and five counts of attempted murder using a restricted firearm. Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and Quebec Premier Philippe Couillard both called the shooting a terrorist attack.Aug. 10, 2016: Police shoot and kill terror suspect Aaron Driver in Strathroy, Ont., after he made a video that suggested he was planning to detonate a homemade bomb in a Canadian city during morning or afternoon rush hour. Driver detonated an explosive device in a taxi cab before police killed him.Oct. 22, 2014: Parliament Hill security and police shoot and kill Michael Zehaf-Bibeau after he killed Canadian soldier Cpl. Nathan Cirillo at the National War Memorial and then stormed the Parliament Buildings.Oct. 20, 2014: Quebec police shoot and kill Martin Couture-Rouleau after he threatens an officer with a knife. Couture-Rouleau was wanted for running down warrant officer Patrice Vincent and another soldier in Saint-Jean-sur-Richelieu. Vincent died of his injuries. Aubrey de Grey thinks the first humans who will live to 1,000 already walk among us. But is postponing death a good thing? Tech folks are a little antsy about the whole death thing. They're putting money behind DNA 'hacking,' organ printing and tiny robots that might kill what ails you Robots and asteroids are likely threats, but we'll probably be wiped out by good, old-fashioned disease Amortized over time, it's a small price to pay for the hoped for results — the reversal of aging. And transfusions are already bestowing Methuselah-like effects L...

Faith Marie Mill, in December 1954. Returning to Canada from Europe in 1954 he served in the Overseas Ferry Unit, flying small single-engined fighters across the Atlantic to Europe from Longeueil, Quebec. Postings through the late 50s and early 60s saw him training the RCAF’s (and NATO’s) growing cadre of pilots in Portage la Prairie, Saskatoon and Gimli. His experience with accident investigation within the Flight Safety Directorate in Ottawa from 1965-68 helped initiate safety procedures that dramatically brought down the accident rate amongst new jet pilots. After a year’s study in Staff College in Kingston and operational training in Chatham and Cold Lake, Bruce Burgess returned to Europe, commanding 441 and 439 reconnaissance squadrons flying CF-104s in Germany and studying with the Royal Air Force Warfare College at RAF Manby in 1972. Returning to the Air Requirements Directorate in Ottawa from 1973-77, he helped shepherd the acquisition of the next generation of CF-18 (hornet) fighter aircraft. Highlights of his later career include Base Commander at CFB Comox (1977-80), Defense Attache in London (1980-82), Chief of Staff Air Force Operations, Winnipeg (1982-84) and Deputy Chief of Staff of Operations at Aerospace Defense Command in Colorado Springs (1984-87). He was awarded the Order of Military Merit in 1984, supplementing his earlier Special Service Medal (NATO-OTAN) and Canadian Decoration. He retired with Faith to Lancaster, Ontario in 1987. Bruce Burgess was a citizen airman who lived life with integrity, humility, humour, a strong sense of responsibility and a profound commitment to Canada. The warmth of his personality, his dedication to duty, his courage and his charm enriched us all. The funeral will be held at 11 a.m. on Saturday April 7, 2018 at St. Andrew’s and Knox Church, 21102 Concession Road 2, S. Glengarry, Bainsville, Ontario. The family will receive visitors on Friday April 6, 2018 from 2 to 4 p.m., and from 7 to 9 p.m., at the Munro & Morris Funeral Home, 46 Oak Street, Lancaster (613-347-3629).  www.munromorris.comDORAIS, Monique (Dufort) - At the Glengarry Memorial Hospital, Alexandria on Monday, March 26, 2018.
