Goldfish, some the size of dinner plates, are being found from Lethbridge to Fort McMurray, the province says.

In one case, the municipality of Wood Buffalo pulled 40 of the domestic fish species from a storm water pond.
The anti-goldfish campaign is called “Don’t Let It Loose”, which somehow seems related to the post title.

Though, starting Monday, we’re going to tackle income inequality and structural racism, right?
