I have 2 pets they mean the absolute world to my 7 year old they are like family. Nobody should be forced to give up their pets.

I am signing this because I think it is time to allow people to have pets in their houses regardless of if they are renting or not. It is important to an individuals mental health, especially right now during isolation and social distancing because the increase in mental health has risen. I live in a place that has a double standard for their tenants. One can have a pet and another may not. Which I deem unfair. If the laws changed then this unfairness would change. People make more damage to buildings than a pet do.

I would love to have a pet and think it wrong to deny people the comfort of a companion.

It's difficult to find an affordable rent with pets.

I can’t imagine my life without my cats as much as I can’t imagine their lives without me. All my animals are adopted and my rabbit I rescued from a park as she was abandoned. Vancouver is such an un pet friendly city for renters. It’s nearly impossible to find pet friendly housing. I’ve depended on my pets emotionally and mentally as they depend on me for their basic needs and emotional needs. I’m truly tired of being discriminated against for being a renter who has pets.

I am sick and tired of people refusing pets due to either no reason or reasons that can be easily managed.

Pets are family members and should not be left behind!

I have a dog and cat. They are family. I live in Ontario and want to relocate back to BC where I was born. Cannot find housing. This basic right has been taken away. Unbelievable.

some places don't even allow visiting pets and if you can't leave them in the car what are pet owners friends & relatives to do?

Not allowing someone to rent because they have fur children is unbelievably sick and wrong. I have a cat and 3 pugs, do you think my bf and I would be able to move anywhere in BC and still keep our kids? Not an f-ing chance in hell.
