MOTION TO PROVIDE FUNDING FOR SEPTIC SYSTEMS

At the Regular Council Meeting of December 11, 2012 Council made the Motion "to call upon the House of Commons to support motion M-400 moved by MP Mylene Freeman, to protect the water and public health of our rural communities."

M-400 reads as follows:

"That, in the opinion of the House, the government should study the possibility of establishing, in cooperation with the provinces and territories, one or more financial support programs, inspired by the one proposed by the Federation of Canadian Municipalities, that would bring up to standard the septic systems of homes not connected to a sanitation system, in an effort to ensure urban/rural balance, lake protection, water quality and public health"
 
 
The signed petition was mailed back to MP Mylene Freeman February 14, 2013. Thank you to all that supported the petition.

A good reason to pick up your dog’s Droppings

In response to the POSTING on the Village Forum dated January 12, 2012 we have received a request to post this information received from our Environmental Advisory Committee.

Did You Know?...

Environmental & Health Consequences of Dog Poop
-       The EPA (Environmental Protection Agency in the States) deemed pet waste a “nonpoint source of pollution” in 1991, which put dog feces in the same category as oil and toxic chemicals!
-       Dog feces are NOT a good fertilizer for grass. It is actually toxic, causing burns and unsightly discolouring.
-       It has been estimated that a single gram of dog waste can contain 23 million fecal coliform bacteria, which are known to cause cramps, diarrhea, intestinal illness, and serious kidney disorders in humans. The EPA even estimates that two or three day’s worth of droppings from a population of about 100 dogs would contribute enough bacteria to temporarily close a bay, and all watershed areas within 20 miles of it to swimming and shell fishing.
-       Dog feces are one the most common carriers of the following diseases:
  • Heartworms
  • Whipworms
  • Hookworms
  • Roundworms
  • Tapeworms
  • Parvo
  • Corona
  • Giardiasis
  • Salmonellosis
  • Cryptosporidiosis
  • Campylobacteriosis 
-       Picking up dog waste reduces flies and their lifecycle. The same flies that lay their eggs in dog waste can then come into our homes and spread diseases as they pause on our counters and our food. Reducing dog feces reduces the fly prevalence.
-       Believe it or not, dogs will eat their own feces. Whilst most dog owners think that this doesn’t apply to their dog, the truth is that most dogs will engage in this unsavoury practice at some point in their life. Dogs evolved as carnivore / scavengers and feces were considered fair game in lean times. To prevent this occasional indiscretion from becoming a life-long habit, feces should be cleaned up as soon as possible, especially in young dogs where the problem is most prevalent.
There is a tremendous amount of information including scientific documentation of the deleterious effect of dog feces available on the internet.
