Canadian Star Slams Seal Slaughter

Published by PETA.

Thanks to Vancouver native and actor Emmanuelle Vaugier, the Canadian government’s shady backroom financial support of the barbaric annual seal slaughter is being exposed. The Covert Affairs star visited PETA’s L.A. office to narrate a new video exposé on the seal slaughter, and Entertainment Tonight Canada camera crews were there to document why Vaugier, like so many Canadians, including William Shatner and Sarah McLachlan, are disgusted by the largest slaughter of marine mammals on Earth.

In the soon-to-be-released video, Vaugier says that while the beating and skinning of baby seals “is obviously cruel,” it’s also a waste of money. “Canada spends more than C$7 million in taxpayer funds each year subsidizing this massacre. Millions more are spent propping up this dying industry ….”

Why should the Canadian government continue to waste millions on an industry that most Canadians abhor? Let the government know that you stand with the majority of the country and oppose the senseless killing of baby seals.
