On Monday, October 15th 2012, the Liberty Village Residents’ Association met and discussed many important issues. One of the issues that has repeatedly come up was the issue of pets in Liberty Village.
More specifically, pets are increasingly an issue in Liberty Village. There is one little tiny piece of park in the centre of the Liberty Village with more a more pets in the area, along with more kids, the potential for tension and potential conflicts between the various user groups in the park is an ongoing matter to be resolved.
The pets run off-leash in the park and conflicts have occurred between parents of young children and down-owners when the dogs enter the playground. Also, some residents who simply want to enjoy the park are nervous about the unpredictability of the dogs’ behaviour.
There will soon be a coordinated effort spearheaded by Councillor Mike Layton’s office to create a positive educational campaign for pet owners as to good conduct regarding pets. Contact Marco at Councillor Layton’s office for more information (416-392-4009).
