Pie-tition Prime Minister Stephen Harper

Written by PETA | February 3, 2010

One pie, two pie, red (cherry) pie, blue (berry) pie. Over at Twitter, we have a stockpile of (virtual) pies, and we’ve been having trouble deciding what to do with them (you can only eat so many virtual pies before you get a virtual stomachache). Then it hit us: We should share the tasty treats. But who is worthy of having a virtual pastry delivered to their Twitter account? Then, last week, Canada’s minister of fisheries and oceans, Gail Shea, received a cream delight right to the kisser because of her support of the bloody seal slaughter, and the answer was clear—Stephen Harper!

With so many virtual baked goods on hand, we need your help launching them all. So if you have a Twitter account, click on your pie of choice to send a tart message sailing at Prime Minister Harper. Here are the flavors you can choose from:


Dish out some Heckleberry pie.

Send him a slice of “Dump-Skins” Pie.

Want to serve up some good ol’ American “Cut the Crapple” Pie?

If you’re one for the classics, how about a Cow Pie?
Cow Pie


Now, folks, we know that you can probably distinguish a real pie throw from a virtual one, but for those of you in the back: Please do not try this for real. Also, choose your flavor carefully—we only want each person to throw one pie. So what are you waiting for? Ready, aim, pie!

    It is great to see Canadians posting here. I know the government is behind the seal slaughter but that does not have to carry over to the citizens!

  • Heather Simpson says:

    Iam a Canadian and totally disgusted by what Canada allows to happen to the seals…its terrible…I’m glad PETA will be protesting at the Olympic games..alot of people don’t know what really goes on with the abused animals and they should!! PETA will always have my support.

    I am a Canadian and would gladly throw Harper a cow pie if he was right in front of me for the seal slaughter in which I like many Canadians are against. Please vote on PETA’s campaign to send him and Olympic Committee letters to pronounce against this cruel and inhumane practice.

  • Doris Potter says:

    I’m a Canadian and I say go for it PETA! Your campaigns are nonviolent creative and effective.

    Please suggest a better way to fight the slaughter and we’ll do it. dee

    I am a Canadian too and I am sick about the disgusting seal slaughters as well. But do you think attacking our country and the Olympics is the best way to get the attention deserved? I understand that the Olympics is an outlet to reach millions of people and gain awareness but I think PETA is going to get the wrong attention and look like media whores. Taking advantage of world wide publicity is great but to make fun of the games with a pin with a seal’s head bashed in and blood dripping from the Olympic rings is not the way to go! There is no connection to the world’s best athletes to this slaughter so I am confused as to why PETA would go to those extremes?! This is exactly why people give me a hard time when I tell them I support PETA and why I am constantly defending PETA every time something happens in the news. I think it’s wrong and I do not support trashing the games. There has to be better way to raise awareness and educate people.

    Pies pies pies!! He needs a cow pie though!

  • Aneliese says:

    Hm…maybe I should start a Twitter account. I’m Canadian and I want the seal slaughter to stop.

    Something tells me Harper is going to get his fill of cow pie.
