Victoria councillors passed a motion at a committee meeting Feb. 27 that requires parks staff to consider off-leash dog areas when updating city parks plans.

The motion was put forward by Coun. Charlayne Thornton-Joe, who was concerned that a nine-year-old off-leash area report wasn’t being properly considered by staff.
