    Sounds there was quite a bit of excitement at Marineland on Sunday!

    From the Toronto Star:

    The last day of Marineland’s operating season drew hundreds of protesters outside the Niagara tourist attraction’s gates on Sunday and escalated when about 150 people stormed inside, yelling “shut it down.”

    Organizers said they hadn’t planned to enter the park but set up a demonstration outside in hopes of keeping attention on sea mammal captivity in Canada, even after Marineland shuts down for the winter. The protest, which appeared to draw a crowd of at least 500 at its peak, follows a Star investigation that reported accounts by former trainers who blamed poor water quality and short-staffing for animal sickness and death.

    From the Niagara Falls Review (includes picture and video):

    Tourists on Clifton Hill in Niagara Falls watched in amazement, but for two members of Canada’s military, it was just another day on the job as they rappelled more than 100 meters down an outside wall of the Sheraton-on-the-Falls hotel.

    It was all part of a demonstration that took place over the noon hour on Monday for those attending a three-day conference put on by the Association of Canadian Community Colleges.

    I tweeted about some of this on Monday…
