Legal Oddities in (Blank) Law

If you see a doggie in a window in Richmond B.C., it had
better not be for sale. In April, a
B.C. Supreme Court ruled in
favour of a Richmond bylaw banning the sale of dogs in pet stores,
according to bclocalnews.com.
Three pet stores jointly took
the city to court, claiming the ban
would not achieve its purpose of
reducing unwanted and abandoned dogs and that they were
being discriminated against. In
drafting the bylaw, the city distinguished between pet stores
where there is little screening
and it is possible to purchase a
dog and take it home the same
day, and breeders and kennels
which have more screening and
in which there is often a delay
between selection and bringing
the dog home.
This bylaw was sparking controversy even before the pet
stores took the city to court. Prior
to approving the bylaw, the city
received one petition supporting
the ban with 2,160 signatures
and one petition opposing the
ban with 1,174 signatures.
Sounds like there is plenty to
talk about at the dog park.
