Vaugier won't be appearing on Canadian television anytime soon, thanks to a
rejection from the Television Bureau of Canada, which deemed the new spot too

has disappeared. The Television Bureau specifically objected to two moments
in the video: A bloody seal gurgles after being left to die by a sealer, and a
