"The difficulty is, how do you enforce it? Having the feeding station and being able to connect someone to it. And . . . we can't enforce a bylaw against feeding a red squirrel [which is indigenous] but we can against a grey squirrel.

A bylaw isn't going to do the trick, they will keep coming around as long as the attic door is open.The squirrels have made themselves quite at home. One woman complained that, on at least three occasions, squirrels or rats had got into her attic.
