Allan's Perspective is not recommended for the politically correct, or the overly religious! Some people have opinions, and some have convictions ..., what we offer is Perspective! (Sometimes I feel like I'm just a bobble-head on the highway of life!)

Moo to you!

Dear Friends: "Let's get things back into perspective here!"

We mentioned yesterday about the Canadian penchant for apologizing, but we forgot to give an example of the biggest, dumbest, stupidest, asinine apology of all!!!!!!!!

Toronto’s island airport has taken down an advertisement after animal rights activists complained it is disrespectful to cows. The poster at Billy Bishop Airport said, “You’re precious cargo, not cattle,” and outlined upgrades being made to the passenger terminal.

A Ports Toronto spokesperson says the offending poster was immediately removed and that particular message won’t be part of the ad campaign moving forward.
 
Deborah Wilson says the ad had implied disrespect for animals that was not intended. “Perspective and discourse is an interesting and important element of any public campaign,” said Wilson. “We appreciate that these concerns were brought forward so that we could better understand the issue and respond quickly to remedy the situation.”
