Toronto Chickens issues statement on Canadian Right to Food Trial delay

The Charter Challenge Revised Decision Date 
For IMMEDIATE RELEASE: The working group of backyard chicken owners in Toronto, Toronto Chickens, is committed to challenging any municipal notices given while we await a verdict in the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms challenge that has been undertaken by Calgarian Paul Hughes.

Mr. Hughes’ court case challenging his city's bylaws that disallow the possession of urban chickens took place from March 5 to 9th, 2012. Toronto Chickens is eagerly awaiting the judge's decision, which has been delayed until after September 14th.

Toronto Chickens is a large group of Torontonians fighting to revise a bylaw that does not allow citizens the freedom to raise chickens on their property. We are uniting in our front to fight any infraction notices we receive until we have a definitive decision from the Calgary case. We call upon Toronto city councilors and city bylaw officers to suspend enforcement of the animal bylaw pertaining to backyard chickens until the results of this case are determined. This court trial is based on a constitutional challenge and, therefore, the decision will impact all Canadians municipalities.
