Let's put Lucy On the agenda.
Lucy has entertained the public at the zoo for four decades. We believe she has retirement options. That's why we are asking for an open discussion at an upcoming City Council meeting.
After more than a decade of controversy, there has never once been an "open to public" hearing at City Hall. Edmonton citizen advocates for Lucy are asking City Council to put her on the agenda. Along with the Edmonton Valley Zoo, we will then present our case on her behalf.
Full public disclosure on what is considered to be in Lucy's best interest.
And the opportunity for the people of Edmonton to participate in this matter.
*For Edmonton and Alberta residents only please.
Please sign the following message to the Mayor of Edmonton and City Councillors.
Dear Mayor and City Council,
I join citizens of Edmonton in asking you to schedule a public discussion of the health and future welfare of Lucy.
It is time all of the evidence surrounding Lucy's situation is heard in the open forum that only a full council meeting can provide.
Please allow informed local citizens and other representatives, along with the Edmonton Valley Zoo, to deliver a presentation.
Lucy has earned her retirement to a sanctuary.
If it is possible, I believe the City of Edmonton must let her go.
