After all, denizens of the Great White North love their icy sports. Once they start slipping and sliding around the rink, they won’t be able to miss our message that the 2010 Olympics will be hopelessly tarnished if the seal slaughter isn’t permanently canceled before Vancouver’s big show. Pretty slick idea, if you’ll pardon the pun.
