More loitering

Amenity areas: Improve or remove Adam Perret claims the police are acting in a discriminatory way by asking him and others to leave the amenity areas, threatening them with arrest.

Publisher’sOpinion By Nelson Becker

At this very moment the City of Nelson is actively soliciting opinions from Nelson’s business establishments about what they feel should be done with the amenity areas. The amenity areas were built a few decades ago in order to provide a space to sit down, relax, meet friends, and make new friends. In other words, it was build to enable people to loiter. Loitering is the act of remaining in a particular public place for a protracted time. While the intent was correct, the design needs an update.

One of the faults of the original design was there were very few benches. Due to lack of space and culture clash, the groups that have chose to occupy those benches regularly seem to intimidate others from sitting down. Previous city council has gone so far as to remove benches in the hopes that the loitering groups will go away. The present city council are now considering removing the entire amenity area with the same intent. This is not the right way to improve Baker Street. Instead of taking out the amenity areas out completely, the city should expand them. The amenity

areas encroache onto the busiest sidewalk in Nelson, narrowing them for pedestrians. We should take out the middle islands to make more room. It would then seem less closed in and more inviting. We should not take away benches but add more. While the plants and trees are nice and green, our priorities are people. The greenery must go and make space for more benches. With many benches stretching from one end to another, there will always be place for Nelson’s varied lifestyles to find peace, relaxation, and congregation. Diversity is what makes Nelson unique; we should not

remove the loiterers but accept them as being part of our community and encourage more loitering by eveyone. Loitering is not the problem, but aggresive behaviour is. Removing the amenity areas will not solve aggresive behaviour. Perhaps the solution is just as simple as making the amenity areas no smoking making it more inviting for everyone to utilise. The amenity areas are in essence a park, they sit on public land. They are owned by you and I. It is important you make your voice heard. What do you want to see happen with these areas?

Ecstasy overdose at the Spiritbar Submitted by the Nelson City Police At midnight on January 27th, 2012, Nelson Police were called to the Spirit Bar in the Hume Hotel regarding a medical issue. A twenty one year old male was found unconscious directly outside the bar being tended to by

friends. An ambulance was called and the male was transported to Kootenay Lake Hospital. The investigation revealed that the male had suffered an overdose of ecstasy (MDMA). The public are reminded that numerous serious cases of ecstasy overdoses have recently occurred in British

Columbia, three resulting in deaths. Seizures, brain damage and death are the possible consequences of the consumption of ecstasy. This incident was not a fatality; however the present condition of the male is unknown. Steve Bank, Sergeant 250-505-5658

Weird, hilarious, and heartbreaking at times profane and fast - not for the wee ones, (its rated 14A). This film is a fundraiser for the Kootenay Lake Skate Park. Following is Cloudburst, the festi-

val headliner. In this festival favourite, Olympia Dukakis plays the 70-something foul-mouthed Stella who escapes Maine with her long time lover Dot (Brenda Fricker) to get married in Nova Scotia. Along the way, they pick up a young male dancer - making this a hilarious road movie. R for swears, and nudity. Tickets and festival passes will be available for in-person-sales at Otter Books. Out of towners can reserve tickets by emailing info@FLIKS.ca before Feb 10. Please go to www.FLIKS.ca for all the film trailers and details.

Do you own a dog?

%52 - YES controlled 16% - NO

YES

NO

52% - YES on leash only

WE need to believe all people are responsible and will follow proper etiquette around dog behavior. And we need to deal with those that infringe on our rights to walk safely in a clean environment. I guess this doesn’t only apply to dog owners. BARK, bark..... WHY do we need to have dogs on the street?

TAKE them to the dog walk.......is it okay if I bring my horse down Baker Street? I would like to point out that the present dog rule was put in place to discourage “hippies” from loitering on the then newly redesigned Baker St. Now the Baker St. merchants, surveyed at a Nelson Business Association meeting, want to scrap the law. It is hurting them. Give it up!

PENALIZE (ticket) owners who do not clean up after their dogs. FINES for leaving dogs unattended (ie: tied to a parking meter) and for not picking up after your dog. Provide ‘poop bags’ throughout the downtown core (like the dispensers by the soccer field and Lions Park). I have owned a dog but did not take him downtown.

IF a responsible dog owner is walking a dog through town that’s one thing, but if its one of these transients sitting around smoking pot and looking for hand outs I feel that’s different. IF you own a dog, exercise it in dog-friendly territory.

Survey results for: What do you think of dogs on Baker Street? MOST dog owners are responsible and should not be restricted in where they take their dog. Unfortunately it’s the owner’s who don’t pick up after their pet or don’t muzzle an untrained dog that bring on the bad reputation that cloaks all dogs and owners. I would be concerned that some dog owners might tie there dog up outside shop and cafes for extended periods leaving their pet unattended while they shop or chat. There maybe some consideration given to the duration an animal can be left. GREAT idea but have heavy fines for those that don’t pick up the doo doo AS a responsible dog owner, I am tempted to say I would like to see dogs on leashes allowed downtown; however, I fear this could be the beginning of a slippery slope. If dogs are allowed on leash only, how is the bylaw going to be enforced? Are all dog owners going to be responsible to pick up their dog’s messes? I doubt it. I would hate to see Nelson return to the way it was before the bylaw where dogs roamed free, defecated, and acted aggresively to passersby. The only way I would support a dogs on leash bylaw is if it is STRICTLY enforced with fines handed out to those who violate the bylaw. HAVE spots on Baker where you can grab a bag for any poops just like at the DogWalk. Dogs should be allowed. I do not have a dog but have previously owned many dogs and like anything they have thier place but not on Baker Street.

I think we lose a tremendous amount of revenue from tourists due to this law. Put out doggy-doo bags and more bins and let the dogs in. YES! only on leash AND in control of the owner. That means no parking dogs at parking metres. Also, the bylaw should include mandatory clean up and there should be containers of plastic bags posted all along the downtown area. In other cities, I have seen these containers stuffed with recycled bags from the grocery store, bread bags, etc. so this creates an additional opportunity to recycle that disgusting plastic. DOGS are an incredibly important part of many people’s lives in this community. With Nelson being a “walking town”, many people don’t have a vehicle that they can leave their dog in while they make a visit to Baker Street. I don’t know too many dog owners that would leave their dog tied up blocks from where they are going either. Encouraging folks to leave their dogs at home is a completely unrealistic option, and if we don’t begin looking at this situation in a different way, this is going to remain a battle for as long as people have dogs as a companion! THERE should be somewhere that people can walk that they do not have to worry about dogs. There are designated areas for dogs. People seem to be of the mind that they can take their dogs anywhere. Rules don’t seem to apply to them. Tourists aren’t the only ones that count. OWNERS must clean up after their dogs.

THE dog by-law is ridiculous and is very noticed by almost all visitors to our city. Everyone who has visited me from out of town has mentioned it and cannot understand the ‘unfriendliness’ of it. The first time I visited Nelson before moving here (2008) and saw the stenciled ‘no dogs’ symbol on the sidewalk, I thought it was a joke! I have always felt bad that I cannot walk downtown with my dog on a leash (and a bag in my pocket) as I can in almost every other city in North America. Also, does anyone really think that someone could get away with NOT picking up after their dog on Baker Street? I don’t think so. If the by-law was abolished there would be no shyness about reminding (telling) someone to pick up. Really, come on, the gig is up with the dog by-law. It is a new world. WE want Nelson to be tourist friendly including those with dogs. There must always be rules, but, the animal control officers must use discretion as well. I am From Kelowna and have stopped visiting Nelson as a vacation destination because of stupid laws...fine the owners who don’t clean up after them!!! I remember the days before the bylaw, and I don’t miss having to dodge dog crap every time I walk out of a store. There are lots of places to walk your dog. Baker Street is cleaner without dogs. PEOPLE who are afraid of dogs should seek therapy - not expect them to disappear. Dog owners who don’t clean up should be heavily fined.

WHY not have dogs under control of the owner (onleash) in public areas and a fine for not picking up their poop. I do not think Stephen Harper should be allowed downtown. THIS is not Muttsville and I don’t think any of us condone the spread of rabies IT is absolutely ludicrous that it has taken this long to revisit this draconian bylaw. I mostly spend my money in slocan valley where I can bring my dog on errands. I will come back to Baker street shops if this anti-dog bylaw is removed. BYLAW officers can just as easily ticket for dog related infractions (no leash, no clean up etc.) as they do for having a dog in the ban area. Lift the ban and enforce the rest of the bylaws. The ban does hurt tourism - it forces visitors to either leave their pet in a hot vehicle or go to another community where they can walk with their pets in the downtown area. I never walk downtown because I usually have my dog when I am walking - missing out on browsing local businesses display windows. Most other cities allow dogs - it is not that difficult to make this work. HAVE a 6 month trial period whereby the by-law is lifted. Spread the word that it could be permanent if all goes well. It’s a win win! POORLY or completely untrained dogs are an epidemic in Nelson. People get dogs to fill an emotional void and then neglect their responsibilities to the dog and to their fellow humans. It’s sad.

Survey results for: What do you think of dogs on Baker Street? RESIDENTS of Nelson who have to put up with these dogs should be considered before the tourists. We live, work and pay taxes here. Tourists may or may not stop in the downtown for a brief bit of time. I seriously think there should be one street free for dogs to walk with owners/ caretakers to go through downtown on their way to and from the dog park. Com’on mayor and council make this happen. Kudos for having a dog park in town. I know many people with dogs that are trained well and do not need leashes, though I understand some people may be adverse to off leash dogs. Either on or off leash, as long as the dog owner has control, and cleans up the doggy-do, I do not see a problem. I currently live in Kaslo and not only can I take my dog with me to town, to walk and to socialize (she needs it too), but I am allowed to bring her in to many of the businesses! There is something to be said about dog-friendly towns. “Friendly” becomes the reputation. Funny how I stopped seeing Nelson as friendly once the dog law came in (and that was before I had a dog). IN the past while visiting as a tourist, I was ticketed for

walking through town with my dog on a leash. It was August and over 80 degrees. With no shady parking I couldn’t leave my dog in the car. I didn’t pay the ticket, but I did leave town. THE dog laws suck right now! MANY tourists have small dogs they cannot leave in cars. I watched a older couple get run out of town by the by law officer. They were holding their two little dogs. They left in a huff and said they would never come back. They would spend their money elsewhere. The law is ridiculous. I do agree with no tie ups though. I love the fact that there are less dogs. For some reason, dogs are on the rise and with all the too many people in the world already, do we have to have too many dogs? How does this help? LAST week I saw a person close to Oso Negro not cleaning up after his dog right on the sidewalk. I also see dogs not on leashes. this is not OK. HERE is something to ponder. Why would city council allow two dog friendly businesses in the ‘no dog zone’ downtown? Here is another thought...Whistler is a town that sees more tourism than Nelson and they allow dogs

on leash in the walking areas with poop bag stations at every garbage can. I fail to see the validity of this by-law when it’s not even enforced (along with many of our other by-laws). Woof! SADLY, this is a case of the minority of irresponsible dog owners ruining it for everyone else. I don’t own dog now but have in the past. IT’S all about dog poop. Leashing will help and don’t let people leave their dogs tied up or unattended. DOG on a leash not tied up to anything witha doggie bag if dog tied up or off leash write them up LIONS Park in the winter is literally covered with dog feces, in the playground and the field. An entire class of Grade 1 students had to wash every article of their outdoor clothing after just a few hours playing there. 1,300 dog attacks (reported) happen every year in Canada including disfiguring maulings, the vast majority on young children. As a parent, “Don’t worry, my dog is friendly” just doesn’t cut it. I was walking by the Coop one day with my child, a big dog approached us and jumped on my son and bared his teeth by his face. The owner was in shopping and

had left her dog unattended. When I approached her and told her what had happened she said “Oh my dog would not do that”. Dogs do not want to be downtown, they want to be out walking and exploring. we have a wonderful beach just for the mut’s, let’s keep it that way. PROVISO, that if the dog barks, lunges and jumps on a person, they immediately leave downtown. Certain breeds that are known to be violent or unpredictable are not allowed. No dogs can enter a business only on the sidewalks and no dogs can be left unattended and leashed to a pole. Perhaps this would create business for local dog businesses to have shopping dog sitters? NELSON is becoming known as an anti-dog community. This is not good. It is also being referred to as a community in reference, as what not to do with a dog bylaw. It has to be reconsidered. Times have changed, the economy has changed. Deterring tourists is not good for business, bad press is not good for business. How is it you can impose a bylaw - the anti dog bylaw - but it is somehow ok to smoke on Baker street?

Opinion&Editorial Freestyle at Whitewater This past weekend, junior freeskiers wowed crowds at Whitewater with some breathtaking aerials and bewildering maneuvers preformed at blistering speeds. The preliminaries of the event were held on the run Sleeper located on the Summit Side and the finals took place on Blast, the run directly beneath the Summit chairlift. Coming first in the contest, was Nelson’s own Trace Cook. The most exiting

By Colin Greenlaw

run of the weekend was without a doubt Dustin Steeger’s rapid descent of Blast. This is not the last freestyle event of the season at Whitewater, as the Kootenay Coldsmoke Festival has yet to happen this year and is scheduled to run from February 24-27. Over the years it has always been evident that Whitewater produces some spectacular skiers but only recently has the younger generation been given the opportunity to showcase their talents.

Paint cannot go to our landfills Dear editor, With the closing of the Paint Depot behind Front Street this week, I am very concerned that there is a plan for managing left-over paint and empty paint cans. The City of Nelson and the Regional District needs to have a site for collection of paint, and to offer useable paint for a small cost.

There are many schools, groups or individuals who would use paint for various art and other projects. Paints must not end up in our landfills. I have written the City and RDCK for their waste management plans for paint. Lisa Bramson Nelson

The meaning of mischief

Dear readers, In the past two weeks we have had two letters to the editor regarding the improper and proper use of the word mischief in context with destruction of public property. We asked the City of Nelson to settle this debate. The following is there response. The Criminal Code cites Mischief as follows: 430. (1) Every one commits mischief who willfully

Publisher’s Note

(a) destroys or damages property; (b) renders property dangerous, useless, inoperative or ineffective; (c) obstructs, interrupts or interferes with the lawful use, enjoyment or operation of property; or (d) obstructs, interrupts or interferes with any person in the lawful use, enjoyment or operation of property.
