Pamela’s Requests to Canadian Officials

Pamela Anderson

Our favorite Canadian and Dancing With the Stars contestant Pamela Anderson never stops (fox)trotting forward with her efforts to help animals.

Pamela is taking advantage of Canada’s Access to Information Act, which lets Canadian citizens demand copies of government records. She’s just e-mailed requests to government agencies Fisheries and Oceans Canada, the Atlantic Canada Opportunities Agency, and Foreign Affairs and International Trade Canada asking for any documents that contain information about tax dollars that Canada has spent in the past decade to keep the dying seal slaughter on life support.

In her letters, Pamela makes it clear that she will be sharing the information with PETA. We expect that the responses will provide a wealth of insight into our new initiative to show how far the Canadian government will go to push seal pelts and byproducts stolen from helpless victims.

Stay tuned …

    Great Pam!!! I know I must do most than congratulating you but unfortunatelly my financial resources are not ok now. I am looking for job and I would like to donate make phone calls like you are doing now etc. You are one of the most brave women in the world I hope there would be more than one like you…Thank you for this Pam.

  • Margarita says:

    Sonia There are some people that are trying to help animals abroad. There’s this woman that went to vacation in Mexico and saw at the beaches how they mistreated dogs and she even defended one of them to the point that she said “I would had gladly take a hit rather than seeing the dog getting hurt” and so she took 3 of them to a local vet that had a small shelter for dogs but it was difficult money wise to keep it running so this woman started fundraising here in the US in the local groups to which she belongs and she’s keeping up the campaigning to find homes for the dogs in Mexico or in the US. And I have known of other similar cases where people are doing something similar with homeless dogs abroad.

  • Sonia says:

    I admire you Pam I wish could do something for the animals of Puerto Rico. We have no shelters for the dogs The comunities do nothing. People treat the dogs badly. Please tourist dont visit this place. Horrible

  • Barbie Diaz says:

    I Love that we have a SEXYGorgeous Spokesperson for Animal CrueltyMaybe the MEN will pay attentionYOU GO PAMKeep fighting !!!! i will stand behind you for ANY Critter…. BDindb62

  • Margarita says:

    I think that Pam should go to Canada and try to speak directly with some of the people in charge of ordering this slaughter and see if once in person she can be more convincing.

  • joseph says:

    the seals are the victim of Government monies going to sleezy special interests. the plane that spots the nurseries. the DFOin it’s evil capacity does work enabling this abomination. the ambasador of fisheries700000$+ the fuel for rescue ice breakers and the loathsome Government workers. money from Ottawa to this useless hopeless human garbage. how sad the only sympathy i have is for the seals. thank you to all who care about the seals and THEIR Oceans.



  • Laurie says:

    Pamela I’m in love with you!! I know some will take that the wrong way but I am so grateful for all that you do and what you stand for. You could do no wrong. Thank you thank you thank you!! Laurie

  • Cynthia Mattera says:

    I have been aware of the horrible slaughter of seal pups since I was in high school some 30 years ago. It breaks my heart every year when I find out that the Canadian gov’t is continuing the hunt. Especially this year…most pups have been aborted or have drowned due to lack of ice .Maybe this is nature’s way of stopping the hunt. Thank God for people like you Pam who speak up for these innocent helpless victims. This needs to end!

  • Darlene says:

    I teach my 3 children that we are put on this earth to do two things everyday to touch the lives of others and to speak for those without a voice. Thank you for setting an example for all of us!

  • Sandra Deneault says:

    Thank you for acting with compassion I can’t wait for the day that seals will live freely….Love to you and all who truly love our planet with all creatures living peacefully.

  • thisandthat says:

    what can we do to stop this? We would need an army and therefore it is depressing.

  • Adrianne says:

    I am sad to say Im a Canadian today. We need to take a stand and stop this madness. Who do we think we are!!!! 2012 is coming and the Earth is sending her mesg. to all. We need to take care of her gifts and her children. Ill be proud to live here in Canada once we stop this sick act once and for all. From Nanaimo BC Saying thank you Pam we need more people using there voices for thoses who cant be heard.

  • amber hill says:

    Thanks Pam. Im glad to see you using you celebrityism to good use. you arent selfish and conceded. you rock.xoxo

  • Rj Pitt says:

    You were wonderful on Dancing and you can strut a Dance so use that photographic memory and you can top this . I am glad you work toward animal rights and compassion for the little childern

  • Rex's Mom says:

    Pam landed in the bottom 2 last night on Dancing With the Stars. I can’t understand why since terrible mother Kate Gosselin who was near the bottom of the judges’ scoring was safe! I dont understand the people of this country who would vote for a woman like Kate who is out for herself and is a horrible dancer over Pam who did much much better and is a friend to all animals. Can’t understand it. Shannen Doherty ended up leaving since she too was in the bottom 2 but it could have been Pam.

  • doreen shanley says:

    I think its disgusting the way the lowlifes hunt and run and pick axe them as the others try to run away. Only low lifes would do that. Thank you Pam for speaking for us people and for making a change in the lives of “God’s creatures

  • Laurie says:

    Keep up the great dancing I think you can win it!! you look great as usual 3

  • MA Moore says:

    Go Pam Go! Thank you for representing our furry friends. You exude grace charm and dignity. I am voting for you to win another round. Thank you for all you do for the animals. Go PETA! Go PAM!

  • trixie says:

    Pam you are truly the best an inspiration. Come on people PETA let’s rock the vote for Pam on Dancing with the Stars. I can’t believe she was in the bottom 2 that’s a crime! She is not only gorgeous and sexy but she dances amazing! I know the largely uptight christian media has a hard time handling all the sexuality she exudes but come on already. Please please PLEASE PETA help us rock the vote. I know Pam will give some PETA shoutouts the longer she stays on the show and she certainly deserves to stay and win in my book. Please PETA PETA members and fellow Pam lovers rock the DWTS vote for Pam. xoxoxoxoox

  • Andre Inglis says:

    I’m excited to see where all of our money is going! o Us Canadians work hard and the vast majority of us oppose the hunt. Our government would have people believe otherwise. We 3 you PAM!!!

  • David A. says:

    Pam is the best and also the only reason I watched DWTS for my first time. Thank you for caring!

  • Betty says:

    Pam is the BEST! She could be content with her fame and an easy life but she is speaking out in behalf of something that MATTERS for those who can’t speak for themselves. She ALMOST got voted off Dancing with the Stars last night though so we NEED TO VOTE FOR HER!!!

  • Carli says:

    You are such an inspiration! I’ll do whatever I can on my part to help you succeed in your fight to help the seals!!
