Winters in Ontario can be long and hard to get through. To help combat that many people try to get out with their families to enjoy activities that only winter offers.

Depending on where the injury occurs, it is possible the owner of the land where the hill is located could face a lawsuit.

Under the Dog Owner’s Liability Act, American pit bull terriers, American Staffordshire terriers, Staffordshire bull terriers and pit bull terriers cannot be purchased, sold or bred.

Child dies after fall from Toronto high-rise window

Whenever a fatal accident occurs it is sad. It is even more upsetting when the life that is lost is that of a child. Sadly this recently happened in Toronto.

Before the tragic incident, the boy, who did not live in the building and was just visiting, was playing with other children.

Tips for dog owners for preventing dog bites

For many people who live in Ontario, pets that are dogs are considered a part of the family. Unfortunately, while many of these animals are loving, loyal animals, under certain circumstances they can become aggressive with those around them. When a dog attacks and bites a human, the injuries inflicted can be serious and leave a person severely injured. While this can happen to anyone, the outcome can be particularly bad when the victim is a child.
