Glenn Black of Providence Bay on Manitoulin Island has posed nine questions to the British Columbia chicken marketing board in connection with the use of chicken manure to discourage street people.
He basically asks if their members were involved and what the board is doing to keep chicken manure from being used as a weapon to drive homeless people out of certain areas.
Black references CBC reporting that chicken manure was used by municipal employees in Surrey B.C. in August, 2009, and again in Abbotsford B..C in June, 2013, to contaminate municipal lands, residential tents, and personal property used by homeless persons for encampments.
One of the seven questions Black is asking the board is “what systems or steps has your organization historically taken so as to audit or ensure that chicken manure is not used as a weapon against homeless people? ”
