Our “weapon of mass distraction” struck again today when PETA bombshell Pamela Anderson delivered a package to the mailbox directly across the street from the Vancouver office of Fisheries and Oceans Canada.
Personally I’d watch her drop off her electric bill, but this piece of mail has lives depending on it: Anderson was sending Prime Minister Stephen Harper a letter and more than 500,000 petition signatures imploring him to cancel next month’s seal slaughter.
Environment Canada’s new data show ice levels at a 30-year low in the Gulf of St. Lawrence. Anderson is appealing to Prime Minister Stephen Harper to spare what is expected to be a historically low number of seal pups from next month’s seal slaughter.
“The absence of this birthing habitat will have dangerous consequences for the entire seal population,” writes Anderson. “I ask that you heed your own government’s assessment and call off this year’s commercial seal slaughter in light of this unique environmental situation.”
Was your signature sealed inside that envelope? Sign our Facebook petition and join over half a million people who have already let Harper know that we won’t rest until he calls off the annual massacre for good.
