Stop Killing Beavers in Kingston
Beavers are important to our wetlands. There are ways to control flooding that do not destruct beaver dams. Right now, the City of Kingston's policy is to hire a trapper to kill beavers. Other cities such as London, Ontario, do not. They install flow devices to prevent beaver dam flooding. This petition urges Kingston City Council to begin using humane, non-lethal flow devices to resolve beaver dam flooding. There is an expert in Boston. He taught staff in the City of London how to install these flow devices and if the expert came to Kingston, he could teach the City of Kingston staff too.
