St. Catharines Council to consider motion regarding controversial vet

St. Catharines City Council could be joining the chorus of voices objecting to the decision by a crown attorney to drop all charges against a controversial St. Catharines veterinarian caught on camera abusing animals in his care. 

Councillor Carlos Garcia plans to present a motion tonight asking city council add its voice in objecting to the charges being dropped against Dr. Mahavir Rekhi and to communicate their objection to the the Provincial Ministry of the Attorney General.  

Earlier this month, the crown dropped 16 animal cruelty charges against Dr. Rekhi saying the charges were filed without a formal complaint. 

The motion also asks that council's concerns be communicated to St. Catharines MPP Jim Bradley.
