Canadian-born Pamela Anderson got a warm reception when she met with a representative from Germany's Trade Ministry to deliver PETA's seal appeal. She asked him to encourage the European Commission and the World Trade Organization
to dismiss Canada's challenge of Europe's ban on seal products.
Pam explained that most Canadians stand
firmly with Germany and support the ban on seal products and the inevitable end of the seal
"As the vast majority of Germans want the seal slaughter to end,"
her hand-delivered letter read, "including the more than 40,000 people in
Germany who have urged Canada's prime minister to put a stop to it, I'm writing
to ask that you please do all in your power to ensure that the E.U. ban on seal
products remains in place."
Knowing Germany's progressive stance on
the seal slaughter and the representative's positive visit with Pam, we're confident that the Trade
Ministry will do exactly that.
