Oh, Pie! Canada’s Minister of Fisheries and Oceans Gets Creamed

Written by PETA | January 25, 2010

Gail Shea, Canada’s minister of fisheries and oceans, was greeted with a face full of pie as she arrived at the Canada Centre for Inland Waters today. It seems that one activist had had enough of Ms. Shea’s yammering in support of the seal slaughter and decided to fill the minister’s pie hole with something a tad more palatable.

 

Gail Shea Pied

 

Since her election to the House of Commons in 2008, Ms. Shea’s name has been synonymous with support for the seal slaughter. After the European Union made the humane decision to ban the sale of seal products, she responded by supporting the absurd proposal that the Canadian Olympic team wear seal skins as part of their official uniforms, saying, “I think it would be a good statement for the Canadian sealing industry and Canada’s support of it.”

The thing is, no matter how adamantly Shea claims that “[t]he Canadian seal hunt is guided by rigorous animal welfare principles,” the majority of Canadians don’t buy it—and they don’t support the bashing in of baby seals’ skulls.

So come on, Gail, wipe that soy whipped cream from your face and show the world that you’re actually willing to taste listen to what your fellow citizens are dishing out saying.

    I know this won’t be a popular comment but hasn’t anybody stopped to think about WHY the seal hunt is so controversial? If these seal pups weren’t so adorable I seriously doubt there would be so many people out there wanting to protect them. The cuteness of an animal should not be a determining factor in the value of their life.

    I am Canadian and oppose the seal hunt for many reasons and it puts Canada in a terrible light internationally. I also am againt the present governement’s stand on Kyoto. Pieing this woman may bring temporary satisfaction to those fed up with the ongoing seal hunt however won’t do much in the long run. She feels victimized but sadly can’t feel anything for the seals that are victimized.
