Email Exchanges with Toronto Zoo Board of Management, 27-Jul-2012

The Board of Management of the Toronto Zoo had a meeting on July 5, 2012. In advance of the meeting I made a written submission to express my concerns about the elephants.

The Chairman did not let me speak at the meeting claiming technical issues, notwithstanding that under the Toronto Zoo's By-laws there is discretion to permit deputants to speak at the meeting and make submissions.

Prior to and after the meeting, I had several email exchanges with Joe Torzsok, Chair of the Toronto Zoo Board of Management, and with the Committee Administrator.
