Callers Voice Their Opinion on Steve Irwin

Due to a last-minute cancellation, this week’s show features the news, Lauren’s brief synopsis of a new course she’s teaching at York University, and a short call-in session in which listeners weigh in on Australian “Crocodile Hunter” Steve Irwin. Was he a champion for the animals or did he, as feminist academic Germaine Greer said, treat them with “massive insensitivity?” Did he educate children or send a wrong and possibly dangerous message about how to treat animals? If you would like to contribute to the debate, please post your comments below.
