Here in Calgary we are only three sleeps away from the Calgary Stampede!
Even if you don’t live here, I know you’ve heard of it and might even be a little interested in what the big party is all about. Â Sure there are tons of cowboys, drinking and fireworks, but there is also always a little bit of controversy.
And this year’s Stampede will be no different.
In yesterday’s Calgary Herald, the Vancouver Humane Society bought a full-page, $15,000 ad that is already forcing everyone to talk about what is always a point of contention for many Calgarians.
Check out the ad below:Whether you’ve ever been to a rodeo or not, it isn’t always an easy thing to watch or even see on the TV. Â But then again, Calgarians are proud of their rodeos, so many of them are upset over the ad.
So I thought I put the question out to you. Â Do you agree with the ad? Â Is it appropriate, or should VHS have used a more graphic image to get their point across?
