Councillor Parker Gets It Right

Following the October 25, 2011 City Council meeting vote against the motion, Councillor Parker posted the following article on his website:
  • "Parker Enews: Why I did NOT vote to send the Toronto Zoo elephants to the California PAWS sanctuary", 28-Oct-2011.
  • "My vote in opposition to the move to the San Andreas sanctuary was not a reflection of any lack of appreciation for the merits of that recommendation; it was a reflection of my reluctance to impose the passionate will of council on a process that had not been allowed to run its proper course, under circumstances that did not justify the sense of urgency that had overtaken the matter."
