Hamilton Deer Meeting

Liz and I were in Hamilton last night for another meeting regarding the deer at Iroquoia Heights Conservation Area. The meeting began with a review of the Committee's Terms of Reference, which are still in draft format. The Committee has one more issue to discuss in this regard.

The meeting went on to discuss correspondence the City has received about the deer. Interestingly, people writing in to support the deer are writing in from other cities!

For those in Hamilton, it would be great if you could
write or e-mail Council with your thoughts

The Committee was then presented with the 2009 Deer Wintering Survey, prepared by the Ontario Ministry of Natural Resources. The discussion and questions that arose were thought-provoking and, hopefully, informative for the Committee.

The night had to end there. The next meeting, on June 16, is going to be at Iroquoia Heights for a tour of the area. If it rains, the Committee will be meeting at the Town Hall (address below).

Members of the public are encouraged to review the Committee's Terms of Reference and meeting Minutes. All meetings are open to the public. If you would like to address the Committee, you must contact the Secretary, Shari Faulkenham, to do so.

All meetings are held at the Old Ancaster Town Hall, 310 Wilson St E, Ancaster, unless otherwise indicated.
