Halifax Going to War on Rats

The City of Halifax is going to war on rats. The city is considering the creation of specialized team to actively attack its growing rat problem. The port city’s rat population seemed to explode last summer, mainly because of a mild winter and a spike in downtown construction projects. Next week, regional councillors will discuss a new report on the issue. It recommends educating the public about rodent management and suggests requiring developers to include rodent control in their construction mitigation plans.
