We’re Looking at You, Canada

Published by PETA.

Yesterday, PETA held a press conference in Vancouver to announce our ramped-up campaign against the Canadian seal slaughter. We’ll be running the campaign up to and through the 2010 Olympic Winter Games, which will be held in the city. Our goal is to switch some of the focus from Canada’s Games to Canada’s shame—the annual massacre of hundreds of thousands of baby seals. To illustrate the worldwide outrage over Canada’s despicable seal slaughter, our international affiliates also held protests in Australia and France yesterday.
