As well, Victoria Council has passed the following motions :
That the Mayor write to the CRD, Premier and the Minister Responsible and ask them to take a more active role in deer management, including public education, community surveys and deer inventories.
And that Council seek funding to work with the Urban Wildlife Stewardship Society to do appropriate public education, a community survey, and a population count and to have staff do an inventory of impacts.
And to direct staff to report back if no funding is available.
