Hampton Park Off-Leash Dogs

From the NCC:
Some Hampton Park users may have noticed an increased presence of NCC Conservation Officers (COs) visiting the park. As mentioned in my correspondence on March 8th, 2012 (see below), the NCC has been receiving complaints that dog owners are allowing their dogs to be off-leash in the on-leash areas of the park. The safety and security of all of our park users is very important to us. Over the past few weeks, COs have been reminding park users about the Animal Regulations and answering any questions that they may have. In the near future, COs will be issuing warnings and tickets to people that choose not to abide by these regulations.

One response to “Hampton Park Off-Leash Dogs

  1. The “COs” that I have met seem not to understand the difference between right and wrong, law and statute, and neither does the NCC, who regularly impose their evil ways on Ottawa residents. See http://www.nccwatch.org for some real facts of what this organization really does. I heard today that at least one man and one woman have been led away in handcuffs for walking their dog. Is this going to improve public perception of justice and trust in our police forces?

    Here is the principle that should be enforced: if there is no victim, if there is no harm, then there is no crime, and no enforcement of anything is necessary. We have law that provides against littering and assault. If a dog/owner commits neither, then the only thing the NCC “officers” should conserve is their breath, and our tax dollars.

    I have heard that there is a single disgruntled lady that calls the NCC whenever she sees a dog enjoying itself. This has spawned the waste of our tax dollars and of the resources of our national policing force the RCMP. She should be ignored. All police forces suffer when they are called on to enforce idiotic statue and regulation. Law is enough. Let’s enforce that instead.
