Pamela Anderson wants seal hunting meeting with Canadian leader

Pamela Anderson has written to Canada’s new Prime Minister urging him to end the country’s financial support for seal hunting.
The Canadian government subsidises its seal hunting industry, despite trade in products deriving from the animals’ fur being banned in many countries across the world, including all those within the European Union.
In her letter, the Canadian-American actress and director of animal rights group People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA), asks for a face-to-face meeting with Prime Minister Justin Trudeau to discuss moves to end the subsidies.
“I urge you to usher in a new era of fiscal responsibility and kindness by ending federal subsidies of the commercial seal slaughter,” she writes.
“Might you be available to discuss cutting or phasing out subsidies to this controversial, faded off-season trade? The money could be much more wisely spent promoting other Canadian businesses with a brighter future that would make the world see us as the sophisticated, enlightened modern country that we want to be. I hope to hear that you will be available in the coming weeks to discuss this important issue in a more official setting.”
Her letter to the Canadian leader is just the latest animal welfare campaign she has taken to top politicians. In January (16), she also delivered a speech in the French parliament calling for the country’s officials to ban the delicacy foie gras.
In her speech to French legislators, the former Baywatch star said, “I would like to respectfully call for the abolition of an industry that profits from horrific misery and abuse to produce a product that is toxic to not just the bodies of those that consume it but is also toxic to the hearts and souls of all of humanity.”
