WELFARE - City of Montreal Can Appeal Suspension of Pit Bull Ban

The City of Montreal has been granted permission to appeal a lower court ruling that suspended its controversial pit bull bylaw.

Quebec's top court will hear arguments Nov. 25. The two sides will be given 30 minutes each to present their case.

The SPCA had argued the law was discriminatory toward dogs that are not dangerous, overly vague in its definition of pit bull-type dogs, and could lead to the euthanasia of hundreds of healthy, well-behaved animals.

Mayor Denis Coderre's administration wants to see the rules restricting pit bulls go ahead despite a legal challenge to its law.
