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?

I refuse to write Chubby Llama Lover anywhere in these comments Canucklehead. It is just wrong.

Close enough. I think the seal hunt and the fishing are two seperate issues - I could be wrong though.

That's ok - Chubby Llama Lover here is close enough. Of course, without the link to him it means that Google will recommend your page and not his, now made worse by me typing Chubby Llama Lover again. Ooops - I did it again. Anyway, good to have you aboard - cheers!

Sir, that was intential. I am intentially aquiring Chubby Llama Lover hits because, with the childhood obesity epidemic, I cannot believe you would promote chubby anything. Shame!

As for your opinion that the seal hunt and Canadian fishing practices are two separate issues, we should probably believe you because you are, in fact, one of the evil doers yourself.

Enjoy your evening in that den of sin and iniquity we call "Canada".

(Just kidding! Thanks for the credits)
