Let the Penticton deer cull begin

Personally I would like to participate in a cull on our lands located inside and outside of city limits.

Personally I would like to participate in a cull on our lands located inside and outside of city limits. Council could authorize a cull on properties above the Fortis power line and on our property outside of city limits on the south east corner of the city.

Time for city council members to step forward and present their intentions of whether or not they will support a deer cull within city limits. With the B.C. Supreme Court decision, no longer can council hide from making a decision on the deer situation.

The citizens will need to have council members declare how they will vote on this matter prior to the next election.

The press could canvas the current council as to whether or not they are happy with the above  B.C. Supreme Court decision. Force a decision from council members one way or the other. The courts came down with the proper decision in my opinion and now it is up to the councils in the province to stand up and be counted.

The voters will have the ability to force council members to move on to greener pastures, if the deer cull question is placed on a ballot in the next election.
