This is very very very interesting. I just got a response from the first male council member, and he said something which caught my eye:
For your edification, Surrey has not proposed a ban on reptiles in Surrey. We have proposed a ban on the sale of reptiles. I think that even you will agree that those who don't know how to care for these creatures should not have easy access to purchasing them at any and every pet store. Marvin Hunt Councillor.
Now this, I would absolutely agree upon. Not to mention it would bring breeders more customers rather then pet stores. The only problem I see occurring is 'pet stores' such as PCPC being shut down who actually know what they are talking about, and wont sell a burm to a 10 year old.
