Baby beluga dies at Vancouver Aquarium - Canada - Canoe.ca

Baby beluga dies at Vancouver Aquarium - Canada - Canoe.ca

A penny. One useless, worthless penny.

Ever since my snorkeling trip to Turks and Caicos, I've become a huge marine life animal lover. To hear of this senseless (pun intended) act by a single penny, does this not make you want the Canadian Mint to discontinue penny production? I mean, most stores already have the penny dish and they round up or down. Australia discontinued pennies a long time ago and with Canada moving to plastic bills next year, it is also time to say goodbye to the Canadian penny, otherwise, this poor beluga will have died in vain.

You forgot about the two pebbles also found in his blowhole. The 2 marble-sized stones they found is far more reason to cease production of said stones.

More importantly, we should consider getting rid of loonies! those suckers would really get wedged in there compared to a penny! Maybe cardboard slugs should be used instead of metal....

I'm sorry, but this is the most ridiculous argument I've ever heard.

Don, while sad, I'll use any news that justifies the disuse of the penny.
