    From the Niagara Falls Review:

    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.’

    The article’s title has since been amended to ‘Vancouver Aquarium seals allegedly left blind or dead after transfer to other facility.’
