Bell Media, stop advertising and promoting Marineland Canada

To the advertising committee of Bell Media (BellMediaSales@bellmedia.ca):

We are unhappy with your representation of Marineland Canada through running their advertisements and promoting their establishment, and we are asking you to discontinue the promotion of Marineland Canada.

While we realize they have been a longstanding client of Bell Media, their current legal proceedings, press and ongoing investigations are simply not worth being associated with.  You must understand, Bell Media plays a monumental role in the distribution and promotion of Canadian news and media.  Your media outlet represents Canada on a monumental level, and the concerned Canadians signing this petition do not want our country to be associated with the promotion of a theme park with such a horrendous, volatile and violent history.  The quality of this establishment simply does not match the quality we expect of an establishment advertised so openly through our media.

We are not only Canadians, however.  Overall, we, the concerned citizens of not just Ontario, not just Canada but the world who are signing this petition are asking you to consider the following information and discontinue receiving funding from Marineland Canada:

Charges (mostly of archaic, brutal treatment of animals at the park):

Once again, we are concerned citizens of the world who ask you to reconsider having your name attached to such an establishment.  Even if you choose not to look into the documentaries and investigations provided, if you look at the online reviews alone for this park, they truly say it all.  Please recognize that everyone does NOT love Marineland Canada.

 

We thank you for your time,
