This By­law is in­tended to ad­dress cannabis con­sump­tion within our com­mu­nity once cannabis is of­fi­cially le­gal­ized. Reg­u­lat­ing cannabis con­sump­tion by ban­ning con­sump­tion in pub­lic places will pro­tect chil­dren, adults and se­niors from ex­po­sure to sec­ond-hand cannabis smoke, while al­low­ing peo­ple to con­sume cannabis in their pri­vate­ly­owned or rented space. This By­law aligns with fed­eral and pro­vin­cial leg­is­la­tion and strikes a bal­ance be­tween eco­nomic op­por­tu­ni­ties and ef­forts to mit­i­gate com­mu­nity con­cerns. The By­law re­ceived First Read­ing at the Septem­ber 11, 2018 Reg­u­lar Meet­ing of Coun­cil. It was moved that By­law #1125 be amended to re­flect sig­nage spe­cific to no cannabis con­sump­tion. This mo­tion car­ried. It was then moved that Coun­cil gives Sec­ond read­ing of Cannabis Con­sump­tion By­law #1125 as amended in At­tach­ment #2. This mo­tion also car­ried.

4. An­i­mal Con­trol By­law #1122 (Sec­ond Read­ing) - Pre­sented by Todd Martens

The cur­rent An­i­mal Con­trol By­law #1021 is out­dated. A re­write of the By­law was un­der­taken to cre­ate the pro­posed new An­i­mal Con­trol By­law No. 1122, which has more en­force­ment ca­pa­bil­i­ties. The pro­posed By­law re­ceived First Read­ing at the Septem­ber 11, 2018 Reg­u­lar Meet­ing of Coun­cil. It was moved that Coun­cil gives Sec­ond Read­ing of An­i­mal Con­trol By­law #1122 as pre­sented. This mo­tion car­ried.
