Any mods think this thread should be in the urban issues section? Seems like an urban issue to me.

Does the city have a right to have off leash bylaws applied to beaches, which are Federal Grounds?

I'm asking this because when I moved to this beautiful country 8 years ago I was lucky enough to live in White Rock. When walking my dog people told me that you ARE allowed to go on the beach with your dog because it is federal property the city has no jurisdiction there they told me.
Here in Victoria everybody seems to obey the bylaws and don't enter the beach with their dog when it is not allowed.

I remember a few years back when a dead cow washed up on Dallas Road beach the city contacted the federal authorities to have the carcass removed at their expense. Can the city pick and choose which rules they apply?

Not that I want to promote bad behaviour. But early in the morning when there are no people on the beach I like to walk my dog there.

Can someone shine a light on this?

Thanks.

That's an interesting thought. Unfortunately I don't know the answer to this.

Having previously owned a foreshore lease I believe that from the water up to the "high water mark" (hide tide mark) can be governed by both the federal and provincial governments. (depending on the issue). From the high water mark inland would be governed by the municipality. (the beach and anything inland)

If the cow washed up on shore and came to rest below the high water mark, which would seem reasonable, that would in my mind be the responsibility of the federal government.

Summary.....dead cows...federal...... live dogs...municipal.

Another thought that I just has was that it would seem reasonable that you could take your dog to the high water mark on a leash and then let it off leash to swim and chase sticks thrown into the water. You should also be able to walk your dog below the high water mark.

Just go on days with low tides.

I shudder to think how many studies we would have to conduct to determine the best way to remove it if a whale somehow washed up above the high water mark.

Not a “on leash” Oak Bay bylaw for McNeill Bay (certain times of the year) in the version listed.

“at large” does not have a definition given by the federal government but Oak Bay does:

““AT LARGE” means off the premises of the owner and unaccompanied by a competent person in control of the animal on any street, lane, highway, boulevard, park or other public place or on private property without the consent and knowledge of the owner of that property“

Unless I’m missing something?

Mixed emotions about having dogs on leash every now and again I do let them off but most of the time keep them on leash and never go to busy off leash areas, so may open up those areas to me. I don’t believe in purposely socializing dogs with other dogs makes them act too much like dogs.


The part that bothers me is that it appears the liberal government is just making up definitions( unless somebody can point me to a definition ) for a 100 year old hunting law


I guess I can walk my canary down there now I think Emily Carr did that.
