    Marineland’s eighth lawsuit since 2012 is seeking $600,000 in damages from a Vancouver publication for a story it claims is “indifferent to the truth.”

    The park is seeking $500,000 for defamation and $100,000 in punitive damages from the weekly Georgia Straight and writer Travis Lupick for an article published and posted online April 28 titled ‘Vancouver Aquarium seals left blind or dead after transfer to Marineland.’
