Needless to say, when I read the Reuters headline: 'Seal Meat to Be on Menu at Canadian Parliament' something TOLD me to mind my business and not click the link... You know I clicked, right? Sigh.
The devil is a busy man.
It seems that Canada's Conservative government has decided to demonstrate their OPPOSITION to the European Union's ban on the imports of seal products and the annual seal hunt- which takes place from March to April and involves killing the helpless seals by shooting them or a hit over the head with a spiked club called a hakapik- by serving seal meat in the parliamentary restaurant today. The ban was imposed last July on the grounds that the hunt is inhumane. Uh, ya think?
*dead fish eyes*
Just so I'm clear- Canada is supposed to be this big 'ole country full of humanitarians and peaceful people, correct? YET they co-sign on murdering defenseless animals by knockin' them upside the head with a spiked club? And you not only co-sign, but you go so far as to put the meat on your lunch menu? Yeah, okay...
Sounds like the same shady grass that grows here in the US.
I'm so sure there's a warm seat in hell for folks that do stuff that this. By all means, please feel free to make yourself comfortable.
