Urban Farming Guerrillas for Chickens

On June 5, 2013 CBC Radio in Montreal spoke with a family that received a chicken eviction notice for harboring 4 chickens in their backyard.

Pierre Provost with his wife Sophie S├ęguin state it's a "way of life".  Note that SFPFC's Philosophies Item # 15 speaks of "a way of life" too.

Small Flockers understand and supports, even if few others do.

There is talk of an underground movement for supporting and defying the Montreal by-law.  In June 2013, this issue was the first to be able to activate the municipal public meetings and review of the By-law by the huge response to the petition in support of backyard chickens.

What should this say to government officials?
