Some Info From City Staff:

It might be assumed by some constituents that the consequence of no funding in the 2016 budget for a goose management strategy would be zero goose-related action, but we are carrying on with some of the following initiatives.

  1. Staff have been collaborating since September with a group of five University of Guelph students who have taken on a goose management strategy for Guelph as a class project in a 4th year resource management course. Our work with them continues.
  2. As part of that collaboration, staff are meeting with the students and some key stakeholders, to allow the stakeholders to share their ideas and concerns.
  3. Subsequent to that input, we plan to engage the broader community, via telephone survey, open house meeting(s), and possibly other avenues, to gauge the community.
  4. Based on what we learn from these initiatives, there may be a possibility of trying a tactic or two on a small scale this year, on a pilot project basis.

Thank you,

City Staff

  1. I think we should be allowed to hunt them, then send the meat to countries who need food.
