The Association for the Reform of the THS "ART" held open elections to select a slate to challenge acting President Bob Hambley et pals. Two ART co-founders Linda Mackinnon & Judy King entered themselves as well as Ferne Sinkins - President of TCR, who also featured in the broadcast "Cat City" documentary

Is this now to be the hallmark of the "new" THS? Stray and feral cats unwelcome here, but can be euthanised at Toronto Animal Services?

This statement was issued by the Old Board prior to the vote yesterday ....the new Board comprised of members from the Faces Of Change slate will be changing that imo.
