Petition to Mayor and Council
Allow Backyard chicken coops in Rainy River
Backyard chicken coops are simple, safe, entertaining, quiet and educational to young and old. As well they reinforce the "Grow your own food locally" which lowers the impact on our environment caused by large egg and kill factories and the use of pesticides, hormones and the over use of antibiotics. Fort Frances has already made this change and has received no complaints as of this date.

The PLOT Continues ?
We, the citizens of Surrey, petition the city to allow the PLOT Sharing Garden and Medicine Wheel (71 Avenue & 137A Street, Newton) to continue to operate on a year to year basis with permission and support from the city. There is a need in the community to be educated about growing food, to have access to fresh, local, nutritious food and to be a part of a community that supports a healthy lifestyle. Also, the medicine wheel creates a space for those in need of healing in the form of aboriginal ceremony. This space enables the community to build resilience through bonds of friendship, offering support to those in need, and ultimately contributes to crime reduction. We would like the city of Surrey to support this space with the necessary elements to help it succeed and to continue to grow.
Petition to Sue Paterson
Allow citizens to have Backyard Chickens in Hanover Ontario!
Currently within the town of Hanover Ontario the citizens are prohibited from keeping chickens in our backyards!We want to keep hens in our backyards on our own properties! Our reasons for this are numerous: We would like to become more self sufficient in our food supply. We would like to know exactly where our food comes from, and how it is grown. We would like to educate our families on responsible animal care and ensure that our animals are raised and cared for with diligence. Hanover is an agricultural community and we feel that it is important for Hanover to lead the way on this issue. Places such as Guelph, Brampton and Waterloo have animal control Bylaws that allow a maximum number of hens. Let's not be left behind, Please sign if you agree that we should have the right to keep hens in our backyards! This petition will be used to show the Town Council that we have support on this matter.Backyard Chickens policies around Canada
