Capnocytophaga Canimorsus is a bacteria that lives in a dog’s saliva. It has the power to cause fatal infections including sepsis, which can ultimately lead to organ failure and even death.

We do not eat that here in Canada.
On topic, pets do come with associated environmental impacts. Most seem to be associated with how pet food is made. Since we need to change food production and distribution anyway, (in order to make it environmentally sustainable), we could easily do the same for pet food at the same time.

Policy? Its simple they want to tell people how to run their lives and they want more of your money for dictating exactly how.

It doesn't tell anyone anything.
Most of it would be rebated, the part that was not rebated would become credit for getting renewable energy.
Hilarious you just said a few posts ago "stupid comes with a price". How stupid do you think people are to fall for a rebate? Tell me what the price is don't give this shell game scam rebate.

The discussion is about how we deal with it.
I've talked about the cost repeatedly, possibly in this thread. We need an incremental tax, and the amount we will need gets higher every year we do nothing.
If we'd been smart, we could have started this at a couple cents/gal/year equivalent. It will have to be a lot more now.
Because stupid comes with a price tag.

Your reply is odd.

I understand its never your fault however when you want to back up ( in your own words ) statements you make on a debate forum let us know until then its worth the time.
We seem to have wandered off topic. Why pick on dogs?
What about bison, the various bears, camels, birds, etc?
Wipe these out??

And since I have now provided support for my claims, is there a criticism about my argument that you would like to make?
