We've recounted in some depth the splashy tale of Montreal's dolphins. One of the darkest hours of this city's labour history took place when Montreal's blue collar workers went on strike at the Alcan Aquarium where dolphins had happily frolicked for several years. The workers simply went on strike and let the dolphins starve. The three that survived were sent to Florida and Montreal never deserved dolphins again. The incredulity and depression on the bosses' face says volumes. The workers, who supposedly loved the animals so much, are pictured below, prior to the day that they simply stopped feeding the beautiful beasts.
