    This fight is far from over but we are very cautiously optimistic with the lifting of the date deadline.

    Myself, DawnJ, and a few other stakeholders in Alberta. Also, we've been promised a meeting the week of April 13th (after I get back from my vacation) with ESRD staff.

    It has been a long road thus far, and we're not sure how close or how far the end may be (for good or for ill), but we've got a couple of steps in the right direction. I'm hoping we'll have some momentum!

    This is crazy not like any other kind other animal like cat or a dog that can go on your lawn and pee on everything in your yard or roam the streets loose. Poison dart frogs can sit in the tank and you can watch it grow and feed. like common laws are so stupid let people own what they wanna. No wonder people shoot themselves it's not just cuz of bullying it's cuz of not being able to own anything. We wanna be free and have the right to own anything we want in life. Grow Up people who make laws like seriously its stupid.

    Long story short - we won. Dart frogs (save for Phyllobates) are now okay again in Alberta. Don't expect an official announcement until after the provincial election, but we have been told by the guy in charge of policy that we can buy and sell frogs freely again.

    We never had Phyllobates to begin with, so we were willing to concede keeping them illegal (though we emphasized they were safe too).
