LETTER: Pigeon ban is time wasted

Dear editor:

In light of the recent news coverage (DNV to Domestic Pigeons: Shoo!,) and ongoing public response, we feel a need to clarify our position on the issues around the recently adopted pigeon prohibition bylaw in the District of North Vancouver.

With the range of important issues our community is dealing with today – from the housing crisis, safe and reliable transportation, and the climate emergency – it is completely inappropriate to spend valuable staff and council time to ban an activity based on a single complaint from a citizen who also happens to be a North Vancouver District councillor.

Given the widespread negative response this issue has generated in the community, it is our hope that those directly involved will show accountability so that we can get back to the more important issues facing our community.

Mathew Bond and Jordan Back, District of North Vancouver councillors
