A two-pronged solution

Move for densification could be the solution to Oak Bay's deer problem

Since we have shelved the floor ratio plan that would have limited the size of houses on small lots and are now embracing an official community plan which encourages massive densification and duplexes, I have come up with a brilliant idea which will solve the overpopulation of deer in Oak Bay.

First, remove all trees on your property and anything remotely green.

Second, build as large a house as possible, the more imposing the better, and make sure it has absolutely no setbacks or side garden to attract the deer.

The deer in return will have nothing to eat, and so as not to starve to death will be forced to travel to greener pastures. Problem solved.
