Windsor latest city to ban circus acts with animals

Windsor's city council has voted to ban circus acts with live animals from performing in the city.
    
Windsor joins London, Kitchener, Toronto and several other Ontario cities with at least a partial ban on circuses.
    
Resident Steve Palombo, who spoke to council before the vote, says banning live animal acts is not just about animal rights.
    
He says the entertainment industry has evolved over the years and most people would rather see a show like the Cirque du Soleil, which doesn't use animals.
