Local Man Seeking to Reinvest in Community Facing Slanderous Opposition from 2 Residents and Town Council.
Windsorite Aladdin Khalifa returned to Essex County after 2 decades overseas. He’s invested millions of dollars into the Amherstburg community where he and his family reside. His plan is to open a state-of-the art dog facility and he has applied to Town Council for a zoning permit, however, two residents are busy making false statements and creating mischief to oppose his application. In the meantime, Aladdin has huge support from his community that want his “State Of The Art” kennel to train their dogs, and to provide jobs. (Aladdin’s supporters believe in Essex County’s goals of attracting new wealth and investment to benefit residents.)
Aladdin Khalifa grew up in Windsor, Ontario in a small downtown house. When he was 19 years old, he left Windsor to pursue his dreams to make it big. Most of his dreams came true , he worked hard in the oil and gas industry, saved his money, met and married his childhood sweetheart, together they have a family with 4 beautiful children ages 2-21 years old. But Aladdin still nursed two dreams – first, to return home and raise his children in the quiet beauty of Essex County, and second, being a dog-lover, to build a “State Of The Art “dog kennel and training facility.
Two years ago Aladdin chased his dreams and returned to the Windsor area. In 2016 he bought a house and 50 acres of land in rural Amherstberg and spent millions building his dog facilities, however, two residents are protesting the opening of his facility. These residents allege that the dogs will be noisy, can escape and harm someone, and that the dogs waste will pollute their adjacent properties.
Am800 reported that no dog noise is heard on the property, and attested to the fact that Aladdin had built 8 foot steel fences and ground guards around the property so none of his personal pets can escape, or dig under, these fences alone cost a whopping $1.5 million dollars, all of this in good faith and to be a good neighbour. As for the dog waste, Aladdin feeds his dog a homemade specialty raw food diet, kept in a custom-built walk in freezer, that is organic enabling the waste to be composted.
The organic food is purchased from local suppliers and farmers, his weekly purchases are to the tune of approximately $12,000.00
In fact, Aladdin has been a generous presence from day 1.
He has spent in excess of $7million (seven million dollars) renovating his home and created the “Ritz Carton” of kennels all the while utilizing and employing local contractors. His property and home have more than 24 local people on payroll – and will have more when his dog facility is green lighted .
Aladdin has donated to local community events such as the Belle Vue House restoration project ,the Amherstburg’s Harvest Festival, as well as participating in Woofa-Roo. Despite his setbacks he continues to donate to his community as well as keep his staff employed.
Aladdin has invited the public and town councilors to visit his property anytime, and he will personally give them a tour on his golf carts.
Residents supporting Aladdin have come out in droves on social media. “We need people like Aladdin in this town” said one, while another said “We need a top class dog facility and training.” A third comment read “his dogs can’t get out and anyway they are super friendly. In this country, an escaped horse is way more dangerous and is not kept anywhere near as secure as Aladdin’s friendly dogs”. Aladdin has had more than 500,000 social media followers that check in daily to follow his pups and see them ride the zip lines or run with parachutes attached to there bodies for exercise.
If you support Aladdin please sign this petition below:
I support Aladdin Khalifa’s plan to start his business of a premium dog boarding and training facility on his property in Amherstburg Ontario, and his bringing of jobs and investment into the Amherstburg area. I support the zoning variance allowing 160 metres distance between his property and adjacent properties.
