I asked the Saanich Municipal 2018 candidates for Mayor and Councilors these two questions.  Following the questions are their responses. Only the candidates listed here responded. 

 

"I have two election questions for each of you that concern me.  Note that I may publish your responses including no responses.
1 - Have you located a property to put forward for government funding for homeless people and if not do you intend to do so?
2 - What action will you take to synchronize traffic lights?"

The community of Oak Bay, on southern Vancouver Island, is moving ahead with an experimental project to control urban deer using a contraceptive that has been used on the wild horse population in Alberta.

The district has partnered with the Urban Wildlife Stewardship Society, which is overseeing the project. It aims to capture 20 does before fawning season begins in late March.

The group is now sedating and putting collars on the animals, equipped with tracking devices. The team is also taking blood, fecal and DNA samples.
