Despite passing Bill 16 through the Legislature at second reading with all party support, as well as passing through Committee, Dalton McGuinty killed Bill 16 when he prorogued the Legislature.
However, it is fully within Premier Kathleen Wynne's power to reconstitute Bill 16 as it was the day McGuinty prorogued. Tell the new Premier to put Bill 16 back on the Order Paper for Third Reading so that it can be voted on immediately. Sign the petition below and share with all of your friends and family.

WE the undersigned petition the Legislative Assembly of Ontario as follows:
That the government brings Bill 16 Public Safety Related to Dogs Statute
Law Amendment Act, 2011 back for third Reading.
