Spotted in front of Red Lobster, picketers! My first though "Finally. Someone is putting their foot down about crappy, overpriced food." Then I read the sign and found out that it is Canadian fishing practices that are at issue. My second thought "Why would anyone picket Canadians? They're so nice!" (Right now I am picturing a reader in Saskatoon saying, "They are NOT all nice. My ex husband was Canadian and he was a complete bastard." Point well taken imaginary Saskatoon reader.)
I am having trouble finding any news reference to this issue fresher than 2005, although I admit I didn't research this very hard. It seems that baby seals are killed due to the fishing practices of those evil Canadians.
I still am having trouble understanding how the baby seals are killed due to the fishing. Anyone?
