Joshua Frey started this petition to Grande Prairie City Council

Some of the best ideas come about by accident. In the spirit of April Fools, the city of Grande Prairie jokingly posted about changing our official bird from the trumpeter swan to the seagull. It is my belief that they were onto something genius, even if by mistake. 

The trumpeter swan is a wonderful and majestic bird, but I don’t believe it truly captures the scrappy and resilient nature that is Grande Prairie. Numerous protections and efforts have been made to better the trumpeter swans chances of success, yet they are still just barely getting along. Not the seagull however. Here’s a creature that can make it’s nest from six pack rings, subsist on scraps from the landfill, raise it’s young next to a sewage lagoon and thrive while doing so! The seagull truly takes the lemons of life and makes lemonade. 

For these reasons I ask that you suspend your prejudices toward this humble bird and finally give it the recognition it deserves. As a citizen of this resilient city I feel we have much common ground with this wonderful bird and I believe that going against the grain and elevating this lowly bird to a place of prominence would, in a sense, be the same as recognizing the contributions every average joe has made day in and day out to make this city a wonderful place. So please, join with me in the recognition of this average joe bird and sign my petition to recognize the seagull as our cities official bird!
