The Supreme Court Dismisses Canadian’s Concern about Lucy as a Waste of their Time.

When the Vet discovered she didn't have an OHIP card, he said she was an illegal immigrant. The Zoo denying their involvrmrnt said they didn't know her. Even the Mayor said,"that's not our elephant."

The Supreme Court Of Edmonton refused to hear her case and dismissed it as a waste of their time. Did they dismiss all the Canadian Citizens who Care about her?
Is Lucy the representative of Canadians who aren’t heard, who have no voice, who don’t count?
Who voted for the judges, the board at the Zoo? Very callous and obviously they are not abreast of the changes in zoo care and the planet. Who makes the rules and how can we disagree?

This is not a dictatorship or have I missed something?


Ever wonder if you had stepped over the line, the line of discretion?

My Voice Will Be Heard, I hope. Did you ever do something you weren’t sure about? that maybe you had stepped outside the line of discretion? Or I can’t believe I did this.
I was wondering how you connected to me as I share many important interests that you  have.

The veneer stone method you have could be used for wood as well, saving forests which are under fear of extinction. Were you wondering if my paintings could be used for veneer, fantastic idea.

I’m glad that you are working on Edmonton’s economy as I have been concerned about the Edmonton Valley Zoo’s reason for not allowing Lucy to go to the sanctuary. Elephants love and need each other and she has been alone for 35 years,not giving her a chance to experience the real meaning of why she came to this planet, her heritage. Her mental and physical health is going down. You may not know how many people are concerned.

They are destroying the concept of what Canadians are about.
I ‘m sure you have heard this, but you are an ideal person to help the friends of Lucy, Peta foundations and a rally against poachers.

Lucy falls asleep hugging the Poacher. After that night the poacher gave up his gun and follows Lucy holding her tail. So good to repent, he says.

I painted an exceptional painting of Lucy and the Poacher, Straight up, she looks as if she could strangle him but on its side Lucy looks as if she is hugging the poacher. She says you can’t fight violence with violence. Edmonton would be a national hero.
Sorry if I bent your ear but I have never read about someone with such a beautiful inspirational goal.

Oh your Mother Won’t let you Go? Lucy you’re 38.

Easy. oh you want a seat belt . don't worry.We Got It.

Camel Jockeys ? What will They Think of Next? Hard to Say, Hard to Stay Ahead of this Game

Kidnapped by friends, family, sold, no one came willingly were boys, 3 or 4 years old. They had to weigh no more than 40 pounds; therefore, they were given little food or water. One family hired a man to find a child: he found him and went to the authorities. A bold spokesperson, no less, that all the boys were sent home to their families. Some boys were so young when taken that 4 years later, they didn’t know where they came. The government made large settlements to the boys families for education and medical treatment. One family told their son he didn’t need treatment as his life was half over. They bought land. Some of the boys interviewed said they saw a camel run the wrong way and two boys were beheaded. Many had severe problems as surgical treatment had not been provided. A fire in a plastic tent left some of the boys with severe burns. Needless to say the boys suffered and were left with terrible memories.
Robots are the new jockeys. This is one road in history that should dead-end right here.

A Home is Not A Home without a Newfie Dog

The boys saved 29 men when the ship went down.

The boys saved 22 men when the ship went dow

Norton, Grandpa’s Newfie dog died Grandpa looked destroyed as he cried and cried.
He said he had a whole in his soul
That wouldn’t fill in or let go
After two tear filled days he jumped into his truck
No good by but we wished him good luck
For two days he didn’t come back, no cell phone to call
But when he returned he said it all
There were two black hairy bundles one in each arm
That’s even better than one lucky charm
He came home with Norton 2 and 3
He swore they brought happiness to every family
He said a family ain’t blessed with joy
Unless he’s got a slobbery big Norton boy.
Grandpa made us take an oath that we’d all own
A Norton newfie dog to bless our home
Grandpa’s marine ship set sail in a hazy fog
As it thickened none could see what is soon to be
Except for the courageous Newfie Norton dog

One night the Nortons sleeping, dreaming vividly
Number 2 raised his head listening intently
He heard someone scream silently
Roused waking Norton number 3

Into the water knowing what to do
Floundering arms and legs ,numbering twenty two
Grab, pull with neer a sound
A flash illumination, men dumped in a mound
Loudly barking as they ran  to the station
The police following in lively animation
Laying there barely alive, but safe on the ground
Exhausted Norton Two and Three, True Heroes,None better to be found.
A family ain’t a family without a dog, a Newfie
Bringing joy and happiness, take it from me
Grandpa knew the best way to be
Now we’re up to Norton 53

How many Canadians does it take to make an elephant happy?

I have followed the history of Lucy the elephant, who lives as a solitary elephant for over 35 years at the Edmonton Valley Zoo. Bob Barker, an animal activist, who in 2009 and 2013 came to Canada to plea for Lucy’s release to go to a sanctuary. He offered the zoo, $300,000 for the zoo and $100,000 for her transport to go and live with other elephants.The zoo refused.
A letter from the Edmonton zoo, states that they are within the law, as decided by the Supreme court. I don’t think so but please read it for yourself://

In 1976 she arrived,as an orphan, bonding with zoo keepers, who declare they are Lucy’s family. The zoo maintains Lucy doesn’t need other elephants; she is a “unique people’s elephant.”No one is challenging the dedication of her keepers, or their care.

Today we see photographs of elephant’s hugging, joy being in the herd.They recognize memories of past ancestors, and live in a strong matriarchal society. A bond with humans, no matter how strong, can be a justification for keeping an intelligent social animal isolated from its own kind, especially in an unnatural climate.

Why does the zoo refuse $400,000, and Lucy’s opportunity to return to be with other elephants after 38 years?

The zoo’s vet said she’s not overweight. Her trunk is clogged but not as bad, have they reduced the number of hours she holds up signs? In a photograph there is a bump in her trunk, just above where she holds the signs. Could this be a work related injury? They haven’t done anything about it.

the zoo keep refusing? They could up date the environmental conditions in the zoo per a PETA report.

A Video on (U tube)shows Lucy rocking back and forth in her cell. Supervisor, Dean Treichel, said that Lucy demonstrates “anticipatory behavior while she waits for her herd (keepers) to show up”. The constant companionship of other elephants would spare Lucy the anxiety. Although with the zoos overabundance of money, I think they should hire a night man who could sing and comfort Lucy.

Still $400,000, perhaps Lucy is making extra income, selling paintings. No I only sell 2 or so a year and I’ve painted for over 40 years. Perhaps I should hold up signs in an elephant’s outfit. I believe they are profiteering off of poor Lucy. After 35 years it would be an humanitarian act to let her go; however, it brings to mind the girl whos was held captive and escaped a year ago. She’s much happier.

So many Canadians would like to see Lucy leave but what do they do? Or is it just the usual talk, oh we hate war, kidnapping 270 children, sugar, fat people, not out loud. I can go on.

How many Canadians does it take to fight a zoo and bring happiness to a suffering elephant?
