GuelphToday received the following letter from citizen Murray Clarke regarding the ongoing debacle surrounding off-leash dog parks in Guelph.
We’ve recently moved to Guelph and appreciate the extensive parks, trails and public open spaces. Near our home is a large city park adjacent to a public school.
While not strictly legal, many dog owners allow their pooches to run and play, leash-free.
There may be an occasional yip, but barking is a non-issue.
In the town where we lived previously, the municipality developed a lovely fenced leash-free park which we visited daily with our dog, along with many other owners and pets. Noise there is a non-issue.
Beyond NIMBY? NOPE, Not On Planet Earth. Or BANANA. Build Absolutely Nothing Anywhere Anything Else.
