Municipal Violations

I will put forward discussion items and request staff look into updating Brampton's dumb & ridiculous By-Laws:  

Don’t buy roadside items such as ice cream 

Don’t play or keep sports items on streets

Parking 2:00 a.m. to 6:00 a.m. prohibited 

  • Park on even side Mon. Wed. Fri. 
  • Park on the odd side Sun. Tues, Thurs. 
  • Any vehicles not parked on authorized side are ticketed (May-Oct.) or towed away (Nov. - Mar). 

People can't live in an accessory structure 

  • This restricts affordable housing choices for singles and seniors as it increase residential density without dramatically altering the morphological pattern​.  

Pet Licensing (Cat & Dog) 

  • Fee should be collected from vets & remitted to the city for this cash cow to work successfully. Instead of going door to door to verify pet licenses we should make better use of By-Law enforcement & crack down on:

  • Owners who don't keep their pets on a leash  

  • Stoop and scoop 

The Secondary Unit Task Force
