    I'm a reporter at the Toronto Star. I'd like to speak to people who are raising chickens in Toronto or nearby for a story. Could you contact me at [email protected]?
    Look forward to hearing from you, Leslie

    I've sent you an email. I live in Durham Region, east of Toronto and just started raising a few chicks.

    Respond to my email if you'd like questions answered for your story!

    Thanks

    Quote:Oooh, there's a petition going round in Durham? Is this online, or what? I'm in Durham region, and although of course I already actually have chickens legally due to being zoned agricultural, I would DEFINITELY like to sign any petition to try to make chickens more generally allowed.

    Thanks for any info,

    Pat

    Quote:Unfortunately, this link is for Durham, North Carolina, not Durham Region Ontario. So those chickens in Durham NC should be quite happy since I've got a lot of people from Durham Region signed up to support them! [​IMG]

    If anyone has started an east Toronto, or Durham Region of Ontario petition, please let me know! Thank you!

    Stella:

    Sorry about that - my head was in Ontario.

    However, if you know anyone in Toronto, please ask them to sign the petition.

    Just go to www.torontochickens.com and click on the link to the petition.

    Thank you.
