It would be greatly appreciated if Peace Arch News could let the citizens of White Rock know that dog leashes in our city must be a maximum of three metres long. I have confirmed this with the head of bylaw enforcement, James Nyhus. Thus all those retractable leashes that stretch out for 20 feet are actually illegal and could garner a $100 fine.
I am certainly not looking forward to the promenade dog trial, especially with all these 20-foot retractable leashes everywhere.
What a gong show that will be.

For several years, I have enjoyed regular visits to White Rock’s promenade and pier. Every visit was unique, with the constant change in ocean and bird life. But my visit last Sunday was a horror show as rampaging dogs roamed the beaches, chasing every bird in sight.
Boundary Bay is a protected area – but apparently not protected from crazed dogs and their ignorant owners. Our city council must reconsider its ill-advised experiment to allow dogs on the beach.
The “pilot” doesn’t begin for another eight months and already the experiment is a disaster.
