    Already told the boyfriend if it happens, we're moving to Ontario.

    Basically if they aren't on the allowed list, they will be illegal. It's the most ridiculous thing ever.

    Maybe they just don't think it's a big deal to omit species that aren't as popular? If they aren't on a banned list though then that's kind of a loop hole...
    I would go crazy if I couldn't own a Chewie or Leachie, they are on my to-get list, lol.

    Lack of knowledge on the subject? I honestly don't know. They aren't big in my area, so I think it was just animals with good publicists that made the cut.

    Whatever it is, I have every intention of owning chewies in the future, and I'll move if I have to.

    Good because that's kind of ridiculous. Do you know their reasons for wanting to ban Leachies and Chewies by omitting them from the allowed species list? That's a bit silly to me..
    Usually people only try and get Reptiles banned that they view as dangerous or that are local wildlife that they don't want people catching to keep as pets.

    Page 30-34 are the approved list.

    It's going to council Monday. I've already contacted news outlets and there is a petition.

    Is this just a proposal or is this actually happening?
    If they are indeed going to pass this bill then you should maybe write up a petition and get every Reptile lover you know to sign it.

    A link or two would help your argument.

    But not cresties or gargs. I just... don't even know what.

    My city has proposed a new bylaw that severely restricts any of the herps owned in Winnipeg. Instead of banning species specific animals, they made an approved list, with 107 lizards on it. Cresties and Gargs are okay, even though they call cresties "Guichenot's Giant Gecko"

    Long story short, I'm furious. I have been saving up for chewies for a while, and banning them through omittance seems... asinine.
Working...
