Today, Councillor Gloria Lindsay Luby presented a motion to Toronto City Council, with over 1500 signatures, to have a vote after the budget on the matter of Brig's Law. She's askig for a meeting with Justice Minister Vic Toews.

Also arranging a meeting with Toronto Police Chief William Blair to encourage him to get endorsements from all the police chiefs in Ontario and across Canada.

The sad part is, almost all changes to the Canadian criminal code happen after tragedies. Let's make this tragic and heartbreaking event a step to a better justice system. Let's not let Brig's death be forgotten, and let's try to ensure that something like this cold-blooded crime never ever happens again.

Don't just be sad, be angry. Get in touch with your local politicians and tell them how you feel. This is the only way change happens.

Current status according to city clerks office:


Councillor Lindsay Luby has received the consent of Council to submit a Motion on this topic. The Motion will be distributed at some point during the meeting. Council still must take a couple of procedural votes before it can debate the Motion - for example, it must waive the requirement to give notice - so until Council has taken those votes, the matter isn't debatable. Should Council decide to debate this Motion at the budget meeting, we will post the outcome on the City's Web site once the meeting is over.

The Crimminal Code already carries a section the deals with purposly causing an animal to be in distress. I'm wonderinf why they havn't laid the charge.
