Changing Canada's National Symbol

For as long as I can remember the beaver has been the national symbol of Canada. With the ongoing scandals surrounding the federal Liberal party, one caller to a local Vancouver radio station suggested that it be changed to the cow. The cow could also equally serve as the official party mascot of the Liberals. Why? Because the cow just grazes all day, consuming all the wealth of Alberta and British Columbia. It then regurgitates it in its multiple stomachs, much like the seriously over bloated bureaucracy of the federal government. And finally, the sweet milk is sucked out by Ottawa, just right for distribution to Quebec, the Maritimes, and anyone else who is willing to trade political favours for cash.

So let's nominate the cow as the true symbol of Canada today!!!
