A letter to the GNWT, Ministers of Justice and MACA, Premier as well as MLA’s, and Major Animal Welfare Organizations in Canada has been prepared today and will be sent registered mail and faxed tomorrow, (emailed today) regarding the new NWT Dog Act which passed on March 4, 2011.
As of this date the new Act (Bill 16) has not been made Law, No public announcement to that effect has been made. I have requested that MACA and Justice put in writing the EXACT date this new Law will come into effect. It has been 66 days since this Bill was passed in the Legislative Assembly, almost 4 years of fighting the GNWT to do so. No more postponements are acceptable.
Anyone wishing to contact MACA and Justice themselves are urged to do so.
Hon. Robert McLeod: Minister Municipal and Community Affairs

Hon. Jackson Lafferty: Minister of Justice

A copy of this letter is available to those persons who wish one, by contacting me directly providing their email addies.
