MONTREAL - June 5, 2021 - PRLog -- The 8th of June 2021 marks the 5th anniversary of the senseless manslaughter of Christiane Vadnais by a neighbour's pit bull in her own backyard in Montreal. As a result of her tragic death, very little has changed. There were zero repercussions for the owner of the pit bull, and large, well-financed animal groups used their money and lobbying power to defeat any legislation the government proposed to protect the public from pit bulls.
National Pit Bull Victim Awareness (NPBVA) is shocked that politicians in Quebec continue to allow the lobbying of a small minority of animal fanatics overrule the safety of 99.9% of the population in the province. Since Christiane's death in 2016, and despite extensive presentations including by NPBVA showing recent peer-reviewed medical data supporting pit bull control laws to protect the public, there have been 60 more severe pit bull attacks in the province of Quebec, and the rate of attacks has in fact increased.
National Pit Bull Victim Awareness advocates for more than 70 organizations and social media groups in the United States and Canada, including memorial and support pages for victims of pit bull attacks, breed-specific legislation, and non-profit organizations.
