FEB 18, 2017 — Fellow Friends of LMP: After nearly one month, we have gathered the support of hundreds of LMP lovers to support the petition in favour of having LMP declared all "Off Leash." I am presenting the e-petition signatories as well as hard copy signatories with a cover letter to the Mayor, Councillors Brian Mayes and John Orlikow, and the head of Animal Services by the end of the month. I will make our voice heard. Thank you for your support. I will keep you posted. - Karen Zoppa.
Through all the goings on with the Karen and the petition (great job all) and e-mails going back and forth. I have forgotten to mention that I had a great talk with Christopher Lepa from the City Forestry branch. I was put in contact with him because of our concerns about the water line and any damage to the park.( Oh, quick side note, the water line does go north past the perimeter towards Stone Wall. So maybe that is where they will be drawing water from, not the Assiniboine River.) Anyways, we were talking about replanting any damaged trees and replacing the sick ones along Farmers Rd. and I had mentioned about the east side. He was very much in favour of that and will do a follow-up walk about in spring (may/June) and see what we can do.
There is a dead animal just within the Players Golf Course fence. Right at the end of the 5th hole and the Golf Course trail. Be aware that there is a small hole in the fence that the dogs can get under. I've let Players know about it but no word back from them yet.
