Letter: Sound of backyard Burnaby chickens better than SkyTrain 'scraping'

Re: Neighbour sticks up for Burnaby resident’s backyard chickens, NOW News

I bike past this residence in the mornings and, personally, the occasional sound of a crowing rooster or clucking hen is much more pleasant than the constant noise of the SkyTrain scraping by or high-speed car traffic on Boundary Road. 

Granted, I am not an immediate neighbour of this house, but from all outside appearance their chicken coop is well kept and provides a bit of idyllic oasis in an urban environment. 

I very much applaud Coun. Joe Keithley’s motion to have city council re-examine this issue, and hope city staff can report on this in a timely manner.
