Homeowner’s unauthorized pet sparks fight with council (BC)

Dear Tony: Our strata council has been fighting with a new owner for six months over an unauthorized pet. We have a bylaw that permits only one cat per strata lot, with the exception of guide dog and service dogs. An owner purchased a unit in September and a week later moved in their German shepherd.
