Canada's animal emblem
« on: November 03, 2011, 03:03:53 AM »
Attention Canadians!


Recently, as some may already know, a Conservative Senator has suggested it's time for Canada to have a different animal emblem.  The Beaver has been our creature of choice for a long time now.  Should it still be?


Do we really need to change our animal emblem, and, if so, to which other animal to best represent our country?


Take a look at the article, and then make your choice:

Figures. Eaton is an idiot.

She's also wrong. The beaver isn't the official animal of Canada. It's one of them.

Since 2002, the "Canadian Horse" is also an official animal of Canada.

Well, she's made a convincing argument for getting rid of the senate, anyway.

Harper "We need to get rid of an unelected Senate"
Harper ---> Nominates Nicole Eaton to a seat on the Senate
Eaton ---> Puts forward one of the stupidest motions ever

That's his brilliant ploy.

According to Eaton, it's "a dentally defective rat". She believes the beaver "no longer has a place as our symbol."

I think Eaton is a mentally defective brat, who should no longer have a place as our senator.
