Oak Bay dog owners left holding the bag

Oak Bay fails to provide bag dispensers and garbage cans for public use

Why is it that with taxes as high as they are in Oak Bay that services provided by most other districts just don’t exist?

Oak Bay, like most of Victoria, has more dogs these days than ever before. Most communities manage the waste caused by these dogs by providing bag dispensers and garbage cans for public use.

My wife and I walked our dog from Oak Bay Marina to Willows Beach, through Cattle Point, Uplands Park and then back to Beach Drive to the marina. Nice sunny day, hundreds of dog walkers, not one bag dispenser. Being responsible dog lovers we always carry our own bags but it sure is nice when we walk in Sidney, Esquimalt or other districts to  have bags available in case we forgot.
