This scene has repeated itself all across Canada. Fortunately, some enlightened Municipalities have allowed backyard chickens to exist again, as they have for the last 350 years in Canada.
Gord Hume, former Mayor of London ON said in his book 10 Trends For Smarter Communities
"Municipalities have this tsunami of change coming at them, yet we have Councillors fretting about chickens in backyards."
Today, we present a draft Municipal By-law that Connie and all others can use to help their Municipality to also see the light.

I have also sent a link for this Blog posting to Municipal World, a magazine and reference source for all Canadian municipalities, including providing most municipalities with draft By-laws.
Hopefully Municipal World will help you and your Municipality to better understand the terrible squeeze that Canadians suffer for safe, nutritious, sustainable, self-enabling, & affordable food.
