Happy New Year, everyone! I hope everyone had a safe and restful holiday.
It was a flurry of activity here at the office over the past few weeks. Liz is madly trying to finish editing a paper, written by Barry Kent-McKay, that is to be submitted to Parks Canada. After we campaigned against the cormorant cull in Presqu'ile by the Ministry of Natural Resources, we must now campaign against Parks Canada, a branch of Environment Canada which seems determined to kill cormorants on Middle Island, in Lake Erie.
Jacqui was burried in requests for Project Jessie packages that people wanted to give away as Christmas gifts. With some help from our wonderful co-op students, she managed to send them all out.
I've been busy with our monthly donor processing, paying bills, and preparing to send out about 800 receipts for people's contributions to our political party.
The good news is that a few kitties found their new homes over the holidays. We still have Earl here at the office. He's as needy and demanding as ever! His pictures don't do him justice; you have to see him in action! For Christmas, we gave him an empty box, which he loves -- as they all do!
And just as an update, please visit www.spaycentral.com for info on the progress of Toronto's first potential low-cost spay / neuter clinic.
The year has started off to be a busy one -- I hope for the animals' sake that it's also a successful one.
