Toronto City council approved a motion to "calls on Edmonton to take immediate action to move their 37-year-old Asian elephant Lucy to a warmer climate as soon as possible."

http://www.cp24.com/council-elephants-c ... z2Dei4UTi9

What size balls does it take for the council of one city to tell another what to do?

Quote:
"I think it's very disrespectful of other cities who pass resolutions about what Edmonton should or shouldn't do," [Edmonton Mayor Stephen Mandell] said. "I think (Toronto) should understand why we're doing what we do.

"We've been told repeatedly that this particular, wonderful addition to our city would die if we shipped her out."



Every once in a while some elephant hugger trots out that "Lucy is the most northern elephant in the world it's not good for them, she should be shipped south, and any independent vet will tell you that!"

Well, 15 independent vets have said, if we ship her out, she will die in transport. So, will you STFU now?

We shipped Samantha south 5 years ago, because it was right. If we could ship Lucy too, we would.

It's good to see that Toronto has no pressing issues to solve.

Edmonton big ego ? Hmmm don't know about that one. It is telling however that Toronto City Council puts forwards a motion about their concerns regarding the health of Lucy the elephant in Edmonton. Seems a little misplaced to me considering the current homeless problem in Toronto.

Well, I s'pose to be fair, it's more the Alberta big ego against the Toronto big ego since the ire won't stop at Edmonton. :lol:

This'll have all the lads up in arms and spoiling for a brawl.
