Sarah McLachlan Rocks PETA Shirt for Seals

Published by PETA.

Halifax native Sarah McLachlan, who is in Ottawa today to perform a concert in celebration of Canada Day, has wasted no time in letting her native land know how upset she is about the government’s refusal to stop the annual seal slaughter. In an interview today with Canada’s CTV News—during which she wore PETA’s “Hug Me, Don’t Club Me” tee—Sarah said, “The commercial sealing industry in Canada is perverse and sick. … They club these seals as early as 12 days old, and half the time they hook them and they drag them across the ice. … It’s archaic, and it’s horrible, and I want it to stop.”

Check out all the other great things that she had to say:
