I guess they need more money to give away in sponsorship scandals.

Strange idea- who would go around weighing the pets?

Now a tax per pet would be easier to manage, but think of the tropical fish breeders...

It's April 1st.

Tip for avoiding sucker stories: Google for previous mention of news incident.

Also, pets are handled at a municipal level, not federal or provincial. So even if a pet tax were put in place it would be localized to one municipality.

Be more concerned about real issues like by-laws that ban our pets.

Tim:

I dunno, in other threads about by-laws it seems most people just say "don't tell anyone you have reptiles".

Sounds kind of defeatist.

Even the pet shops don't seem interested in having a say against them
