OK, I live in Hamilton, ON, and I spoke with a city representetive. She told me that under By-Law 84-191 the former city of Hamilton prohibits keeping of any reptiles. The good news is that this By-Law was written in 1984 and Hamilton has since amalgameted into a mega city. This means that all By-Laws will have to go under review. Hopefully when they rewrite the laws, they will make more sense.
