Letter: Crappy move in Port Coquitlam

The Editor, I believe the removal of the dog waste bag dispenser adjacent to the waste receptacle near Port Coquitlam’s Evergreen Park on Lombardy (north side of the road), is a very shortsighted move by the city and completely senseless.

The Editor,

I believe the removal of the dog waste bag dispenser adjacent to the waste receptacle near Port Coquitlam’s Evergreen Park on Lombardy (north side of the road), is a very shortsighted move by the city and completely senseless.

Look at the nearby walking paths and the population of dogs in the Lincoln Park neighbourhood. There will just not be the compliance effort anymore by residents who can longer get the bags from that location that has been there for years.

Is the city that desperate to save money? I find it hard to believe that the savings of cost of these bags is going to outweigh the downside of the decision.

How many licensed dogs are in the Lincoln Park area? Was that demographic checked out prior to the arbitrary removal?

This is not the only one that has been removed. I am aware that the same thing has been done at Chelsea Park as well as other locations throughout the city.

Watch where you step now.

Philip Warburton,
Port Coquitlam
