Staying Upwind of Stephen Harper

In an effort to clean up its act before the 2010 Olympic Winter Games in Vancouver, the city of Victoria is building four new waste-treatment plants to handle the tens of millions of gallons of raw sewage that are currently being pumped into Puget Sound every day.

Processing sewage isn’t the only thing that Canada needs to do in order to clean up its act before the Games. That’s why we’re suggesting that until Canada’s prime minister finally washes the blood of baby seals from his hands, one of the new sewage plants be named the “Stephen Harper ‘Something’s Rotten’ Sewage Treatment Plant” in his honor.

That’s just our little way of reminding him that allowing hundreds of thousands of seals to be shot and beaten to death each year is a load of crap.

If Stephen Harper really wants his country to look good in time for the 2010 Olympics, he needs to act now to make sure that there won’t be another seal massacre in 2010.

Otherwise, Harper may well find himself in deep doo-doo.
