Taking away our beaver?

Is nothing sacred?!

We’re told that a Canadian senator this week has called for a national “emblem makeover” by “replacing a vegetarian rodent, that defends its’ territory with urine, with the world’s largest walking carnivore that thrives in the cold”  (National Post 10/28).  The senator claims that the beaver, Canada’s national emblem since 1975, should be replaced with the polar bear.  When asked his opinion on the fuss the senator could be creating with her suggestion, the beaver merely responded:  “I don’t give a dam.”
