Pam Keddy Resigns from the NS SPCA
The first email I got about it today was at 7:59 this morning, and it didn't stop all day. The President of the NS SPCA had finally resigned. And she's certainly done it on her own terms - saying that it's everyone else's fault - the NS SPCA is ab out politics and not animals anymore, she did it because she's lost the support of the Board and she's had to live with malicious lies and rumours.
It's hard to believe what are lies and what are truths though when the protagonist of the story will never say anything about what is and has been going on - who can tell what is truth from fiction? It's impossible to know when that's the situation - at some point the subject of the circus has to come forward and say what is what - and that has never happened - hence the situation we have that we have come to today.
I think I have about 4 or 5 words in the CTV news piece below - and it's very true - the NS SPCA IS going to have a very hard row to hoe in the coming months - I don't envy anyone who is going to take on the job of President immediately after Ms. Keddy. The expectations are going to be impossible to fulfill. And they'll probably get very little Board support if the same members are there as when Pam Keddy was the President.
And if the same staff stay at the Dartmouth shelter - it's going to be verily impossible - unless the next President has the people skills of Jesus Christ himself. I wish them all the luck in the world.
