LETTERS: Archaic rule over dogs
Re: Cities of first impressions, July 1 letters.
I have to agree with the letter from James Taylor in the Peace Arch News.
My husband and I recently purchased property in White Rock and we have a friendly medium-size lab cross. It would be so delightful to take her on a morning or evening walk along the promenade.
I don’t understand why dogs are not allowed. There is a beautiful seawall around Stanley Park in Vancouver and everybody can enjoy it, both people and their animals, joggers, walkers etc.
Ninety-eight per cent of people do pick up after their dogs and do so diligently. It is just the two per cent who can’t be bothered to do so and that wrecks it for everybody else.
It is too bad we can’t impose a huge fine if caught for these inconsiderate people.
For the large amount of taxes that White Rock collects each year, one would think the citizens would have more say in what goes on in their own backyard – or seashore, in this case.
I believe it is time to revamp this archaic decision for the dog owners and their wonderful pets.
