Protecting Trees by Accommodating Pets in New Development

This was posted more than 12 months ago. The information may be outdated.

Councillor Wong-Tam has submitted a letter to the Planning & Growth Committee to ask for recommendations to promote the creation of pet-care facilities in new development projects.  With only 52 off-leash dog parks and approximately 11 more proposed, the city’s dogs may not have sufficient space to roam free as urbanization continues to cause damage to the natural environment.  Some of the harmful impacts of dogs on the urban trees include social compaction from overuse and damaging effects of urine.
