PETA VP to Give Talk at Concordia University About How Much Money Canada Spends on Annual Seal Slaughter

Montreal, Q.C. -- PETA Senior Vice President Dan Mathews will give a talk titled "How Much Does the Seal Slaughter Cost Canada?" on Wednesday, publicly revealing for the first time PETA's new initiative to compel the Canadian government to be forthright with taxpayers about the millions of dollars that it takes to maintain the internationally condemned massacre of baby seals.
When: Wednesday, March 31, 7 p.m.Where: Hall Building, seventh floor lounge, Sir George Williams Campus, Concordia University, Montreal
Mathews will hold up for inspection the many expenses that the Canadian government undertakes to enable a few thousand fishers to earn pocket change in an off-season venture. Such expenses include a series of government-sponsored "seal meat luncheons" and attempts to first thwart and then overturn the European Union's ban on seal products.
"Whether you care about animals or worry only about government waste, this is an issue that should be of great concern to every Canadian citizen," says PETA Executive Vice President Dan Mathews. "The world wonders why this government persists in stubbornly throwing money away so that a small number of individuals can afford to go out onto the ice and bludgeon to death hundreds of thousands of helpless baby seals in front of their mothers."
An author and a frequent guest on programs such as Larry King Live, Mathews is a lively and compelling speaker. He persuaded Calvin Klein, Ralph Lauren, and Tommy Hilfiger to go fur-free. This event is sponsored by the Concordia Animal Rights Association and is free and open to the public.
