Well I just got a reply from another member of the council, Christine Kiverago:
Thank you for your email. Please note that at the Regular Council meeting held Monday, June 16, 2003, Council decided to enact the Exotic Animal By-law No. 14823 dealing with the prohibition of the sale in the City of endangered, exotic, wild and dangerous animals, and require staff to hold a public information meeting prior to the introduction of the By-law for final reading. As yet, the date for this public information meeting has not been set, but the public will be given notification about the meeting through advertisements in the local newspapers.
In the meantime, your message will be forwarded to the Mayor and Council, City Solicitor and Manager of By-law & Licensing for their information.
