Dogs & Their Humans Need Cordova Bay Beach

Please help...I really miss my beach...

Please help...I really miss my beach...

Please support the request to amend Bylaw #8556 that bans dogs on Cordova Bay beach May to October.

We are asking for the same access to the beach as Cadboro Bay dog owners now enjoy, where you can walk your dog on the beach “before 9:00 a.m. on any day.”

Did you know that dog walkers make up the highest proportion of beach users year round, and that a significantly high proportion of seniors use the beach to walk their dogs?

With respect to the beach area at Cordova Bay, many parents drop their kids off at the Cordova Bay School and then walk their dogs at the beach in the morning.

The only alternative for these many dog lovers while their beach is off limits (May to October) is to drive to Beaver Lake Park or Dallas Road in Beacon Hill Park – not a very “green” choice for the environment.

This is a matter which should be dealt with before we move further into the summer season. If an amendment to the current Bylaw cannot be dealt with in a reasonable amount of time, then a relaxing of the Bylaw should be in place throughout the months of June, July and August while the matter is resolved, so that dog owners and their best friends are not penalized for living near the wrong beach.

If you agree, please send an e-mail to the Mayor of Saanich District with copies to the following addresses:

Mayor@saanich.ca
council@saanich.ca
Rae.Roer@saanich.ca
cba.president@cbasn.com

Thank you for supporting this very worthy request to have more beach time for our best friends, because when you’re a dog “Life’s a Beach!”
