please explain why this would not effect wards 3 & 4.First off, the chair of the ASAB was not publicly abused. A course correction is hardly that.
Encourage spay and neuter. That's what has been said for two years now in this city debate. Take the time and talk to local vets. A huge percentage of their clients have been altered. Many would say as many as 90%.
A mandate is a law. An ordinance makes people criminals the moment it passes and you're in violation.
Do you realize that if the pushers of mandatory had their way, one half of this city would have fallen under the mandate at this point?!! Any one in Ward 1 or 2 who did not have their dog or cat altered would be a criminal under the law.
Teach them. Get the information out there. But take the word mandatory out of it. Keep the government out of it. You are not going to reach those you need to reach with punishments for not doing what you what them to do. It's been said often enough, the carrot and not the stick.
