Allow Back Yard Chickens In North Bay, Ontario. Change the By-Law May 16th/17 Sign now!

This petition had 439 supporters


Many Cities and Municipalities are embracing constituents rights to be able to have the ability to have Chickens in their Back Yard's.

The City of North Bay is not a proponent of their residents having the ability to have a small flock or chickens. Four Chickens are more then enough to allow a growing family the number of eggs for daily or bi weekly consumption. 

Although the Bylaw department is receiving up to 2 calls per week from residents on the rules of having Chickens, those 100 plus yearly enquiries are still not enough for council to change their ambiguous by-law 151-93  It names Domestic Fowl Which could be your Finches, Dove, Canary, Parrot or any other Bird. All I want is the right to have 4 birds for pets and healthy eggs to eat and to have any other resident to be able to do the same thing. 

I will be attending City Council on May 16th 2017 to ask council to be like countless other cities who are recognising property owners right to raise birds. Case and Point In January 2007, Vancouver City Council adopted the Vancouver Food Charter which sets out the City’s commitment to the development of a coordinated municipal food policy that recognizes access to safe, sufficient, culturally appropriate and nutritious food as a basic human right for all Vancouver residents. 

If you feel it's your Basic Human Right to have nutritious food which you raise and feed and nurture with things you know they're consuming, then please sign and support my Petition I will be bringing to council on that date... Our voice matters and will make a difference. Thanks for your signature and passing this off to some friends who are like minded...
