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!)

Saturday Morning Confusion: HAPPY CANADA DAY!


Despite this being the "Greatest Country in the World" (Not the U.S.A.) we are not without our own problems folks.

Here's the latest news from the Politically Correct crowd: 
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.
Activist Len Goldberg says in a Facebook post that message is “insulting” to cows.
A PortsToronto 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.”

They did a survey of all living Prime Ministers and asked them what their favourite place in all of Canada was!

At risk of offending someone, or anyone, they wouldn't give a straight answer, but rather talked about Canada in general.

Niagara Falls is a must-visit spot near Toronto and this natural wonder keeps getting more visitor friendly.

Now, thanks to a new Canada 150 experience, you can not only step behind Niagara Falls, but you can do so at night.

Dubbed Night Lights: Journey Behind the Falls After Dark, the tour takes adventure seekers behind the falls after hours during the traditional nightly light show.

 
Folks dive into a network of tunnels behind the Falls to view the illuminated gushes of water up close and then watch the fireworks show from the base of Horseshoe Falls - it's the same spot that offers yoga during the day.

The after-hours experience kicks off on July 1 and continues all summer for up to 150 people per night.

Fireworks happens at the falls Monday to Friday until September 4, and the nighttime falls journey runs from 9:30 p.m. to 10:30 p.m., on weeknights and holidays. Tickets will run you about $19.50.
