Yes, really! I can hardly believe it myself….
We did it and you did it! Tonight, Richmond City Councillors unanimously voted to amend the business license bylaw to effectively ban the sale of dogs in Richmond pet stores! Tonight, we celebrate, because in the days and weeks ahead, a few less animals will suffer for pet stores’ profit!
There will be some additional work in the days ahead regarding implementation of the changed bylaw. The amendment will require a 1st, 2nd and 3rd reading before council and some public consultation for implementation.
Thank you everyone for all your hard work!
