It would be nice to be able to walk in any random park without having to dodge canine feces in the grass every 20 feet. It's sad that a responsible dog owner is the guy at David Crombie Park who watched his dog bury its own feces at the baseball cage. Hey at least it's covered?Another waste of taxpayers money to subsidize certain lifestyle choices. The city is over-run with dogs. ALL dogs in the city should be registered and chipped, and the City should charge a minimum of $1000 per dog, per year to pay for the maintenance headaches your pooch causes to the public realm (and my private property).
When taxpayers have to pay $5000 to replace a concrete hydro pole with a decaying base because of all the dog urine coating it, it makes you realize how much of the cost of dogs is externalized to taxpayers.
