OAK BAY letter: Not all beaches have gone to the dogs

Report stated that many of the beaches and parks in the Oak Bay area should continue to restrict dog access

Re: OCP lacks beaches, (letters June 25).

I must take issue with Ms. Slade’s letter to the editor regarding the claim that the Dog Report, submitted by the Windsor Park Dog Group to Oak Bay council, targeted all Oak Bay beaches for year-round dog walking.

That is not the case.  The report stated quite clearly that many of the beaches and parks in the Oak Bay area should continue to restrict dog access and leave the current restrictions in place.

We recommended that Willows Beach and Uplands Park not be changed and many other areas be left as they are now.

People can read the Dog Report for themselves, and I urge residents to do so and get the real picture about what was and was not recommended to Oak Bay council.

You can access the Dog Report on the Oak Bay municipality website, oakbay.ca/our-community/pets-animals/dogs.
