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. The strata council received a complaint and within 5 days gave the owner notice of the bylaw complaint. We had a hearing with the owner and were basically told where to shove our bylaws. The dog and the owner have both been aggressive with other owners and we need to deal with this issue. Is the strata permitted to remove the pet?     Read the Q&A………….
