Letter: Please keep your dog’s ‘landmines’ off our favourite trail

Dog waste is ruining North Vancouver's popular Powerline Trail, this letter writer says
A letter writer says 'landmines' left by dogs are ruining a popular North Vancouver trail.

Dear Editor:

I’d like to humbly request dog walkers take better care of their waste on Powerline Trail in North Vancouver. The trail is easily accessible and has some beautiful views, but it’s currently almost unusable due to the “landmines” left on the trail.

We need to have a local conversation about responsible dog ownership, as my family is currently missing out on a wonderful greenspace after having to hose-off our sneakers one too many times. I do suspect some of the blame lies with professional dog walkers, who never seem to be carrying filled doggie bags.
