You’re a fraud if you report on the Wicca case without mentioning that she was killed and accused without proof. The media’s job is to inform, not create hysteria with misinformation. The Justice system failed Wicca, as is the media coverage.
When news & politics clash with impartiality it’s time to say goodbye.
The city’s lawyer that fought so hard to kill Wicca, the 5 year old Pitbull deemed dangerous and killed for scratching a lady is now running as a political candidate for the CAQ. Simon Jolin-Barrette wrote his thesis on constitutional law, however he vigorously defended the municipal by-law that killed Wicca on the basis that someones constitutional rights are not valid if the property is assumed dangerous and at that without proof.
Speaking to Martine Painchaud, a spokesperson for the city, La Presse reports that now, if an animal is declared dangerous by a borough, the immediate sentence is death. The owner has 24 hours, in which they can hire an expert of their choosing to contest the sentence.
The flyers for the demonstration, as well as a statement posted on the Montreal SPCA’s website both say the new bylaw would give a dog’s owner 24 hours to obtain an evaluation from an animal behaviorist in order to appeal the decision to euthanize their dog. That claim was also refuted by Painchaud.
I’m looking for citizens who had their pets seized by the City of Montreal for various reasons including those who received an order to euthanize. Plans are under way to file for an authorization for a class action lawsuit against the city.
The City has refused to conform itself with two Superior Court Judgements that declare their methods invalid and illegal.
Enough is enough, the City hasn’t amended it’s By-law to reflect the invalidity of their By-law. We currently have proof that the City is still doing what it shouldn’t. I’m now reaching out to the public to gather more proof to justify a class action lawsuit.
