Filmmaker claims aquarium trying to block new film

The makers of a documentary film which exposes the terrible conditions that whales and dolphins live in at Vancouver Aquarium have claimed that the marine park has tried to censor their film.

Filmmaker Gary Charbonneau has said in a statement that the Aquarium has made repeated attempts to block the film, titled Vancouver Aquarium Uncovered, including reserving mass amounts of seats under false names and ripping down film posters.

Commenting about the content of his film, Charbonneau said; “What I’ve uncovered is absolutely shocking and sad. Everything we’ve been told about rescue, longevity and saving cetaceans in the wild is horrifically untrue.”
