Niki Sharma says park commissioners can have sex with whomever they like, unlike captive whales
Several sections go beyond addressing policy and criticize the park board on a borderline-personal level.
In a telephone interview, Vision Vancouver commissioner Niki Sharma told the Straight that her attention was caught by one line in particular.
"For the Park Board to stop whales and dolphins from doing what comes naturally is like telling Park Board commissioners not to have sex, ever," wrote aquarium president and CEO John Nightingale. "It’s unnatural."
Sharma responded by describing that statement as "ridiculous".
"We are talking about captive animals," she explained. "There is nothing natural about their breeding. I am not captive and I have the freedom of choice of who I partner with and who I don’t. I find that statement to be quite ridiculous."
