This week, as widely reported in the media on October 28, Senator Nicole Eaton called for a change in Canada's national symbol, forsaking the beaver in favour of the polar bear. This has led to an intense debate and Roots is anything but indifferent.
As Joe expressed so memorably in Molson's "I Am Canadian" rant in 2000, "The beaver is a truly proud and noble animal."
Our buck-toothed friends up in Algonquin Park, now preparing for the long winter, are deeply offended by Senator Eaton's unconscionable demand to retire the beaver and cause offense to millions of Canadians.
