NDP says Dexter has no plans for breed-specific bans on dogs
The New Democrats say they’ve made a faux paw.
Spokeswoman Barbara Emodi said Wednesday said she made a mistake when submitting leader Darrell Dexter’s answer to a question about banning some dog breeds.
The questions were posed in The Chronicle Herald’s Petpourri column, published Tuesday.
She said Mr. Dexter does not support breed-specific legislation.
"I wrote it down wrong," she said.
Janet Chernin, the Atlantic chairwoman for the Dog Legislation Council of Canada, wrote to Mr. Dexter after seeing his answer in the paper.
Ms. Chernin, the owner of two bull terriers and a Rottweiler, said she could not support a party that backed a breed ban.
AHAH! LETTER WRITING AND PHONE WORK, DAMNIT!
