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:

David
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.

Not that anyone would WANT to live in Surrey but....that's another ball of wax.

Maybe I misunderstood? I am thinking this means at pet stores only, due to his comment 'I am sure you can agree...' My apologies, it was a mistake lol.

Ok I just got a reply back from consoler Barb. I'm not sure where she is going with this one but the big 'B' stands out for me. I did make a little comment in my letter referring how reptiles can help with jobs and tourism (Reptile Zoo's and pet stores) using a quick little thing about Scales Zoo and how much people come to see their place in a small town, nothing compared to Surrey. Any way here is Barb's e-mail,

Maybe this will help to convince you that we should all have reptiles for
pets, and, of course, they are great for tourism!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Barb

I don't know you figure it out.

This just pisses me off. Yet another herp hatter trying to ruin it for all of us out of their own fear for them. They know next to nothing about then, all they know is they hate them. Then outy of fear or spite they bann then from us. They take away what we love because they are @$$holes. Good thing I'm in America or I'd probably end up going mad and shooting them. ARRRGGGG!!!

You wouldn't like me when I'm pissed off.

Good one Walter! Glad to know that they aren;t just going to let it all drop after a few days, like they usually do. I am happy that they are still printing the positive aspects of this mess. It's a real plus to have people from outside BC making the effort to help us out. It's very much appreciated. Thank-you!
Tim and Julie.

Good job Walter. I think that if every herper floods the papers, radio, TV, and Surrey City council with letters and tie up their phone lines, this will either piss them off and notice a revolt in the making or realize that they are morons and haven't the slightest idea of what damage they are creating for themselves in Surrey for tourism.
