Four former Vancouver mayors have taken a public stand on the debate over the future of the Vancouver Aquarium.
Larry Campbell says a lot of the outrage over the whether the attraction should keep cetaceans stems from the documentary about SeaWorld.
He says he supports the aquarium rescuing cetaceans, who would otherwise die in the wild, and thinks debate is necessary.
“I watched Blackfish and I was appalled, but we aren’t running SeaWorld. We’re not running so that we’re capturing and we’re putting these animals on display like SeaWorld.”
Sam Sullivan, Mike Harcourt and Phillip Owen also signed a letter, sharing Campbell’s views.
