Just received news that the Vancouver City Council will be debating the issue of backyard chickens during tomorrow’s session. I know that many of you are passionate about this issue, as am I – urban chickens can be an integral part of food security initiatives, help decrease family grocery bills, teach children about animal husbandry and provide hours of entertainment. Many thanks to the city’s Food Policy Council members, who have been the ones working hardest to bring this issue to the table.
Comments can be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org. Act quickly – the discussion is tomorrow and council should know about the popular support for chickens in the city.
