Is That Gaff or Gaffe? Canada’s Seal Hunt
Canada’s Primordial Minister is defending the harp seal hunt (when really, a much healthier thing would be Harper hunting) to the world. Yup , the European Union has banned seal products from Canada, calling the hunt inhumane. Why Trade Minister Stickwell day is vowing to challenge this at the World Trade Organization. Whoooooooo…..bet they’ll really listen to him, especially because the PM says, “This industry, you know, has tight standards, the tightest in the world. The standards of this industry, quite frankly, are better than many other industries that deal with animal products.” Get it right, Harper Seal, over 350,000 seals are bludgeoned to death every year with them thar Newfie gaffs.
And as for the Inuit, if you wanna continue killing seals, which I have no problem with, then use harpoons or guns….anything that gives a quicker and more assured aim and demise.
AND WHERE’S THE GAFFE?
The PM’s office let out a news release spelling the town of Iqaluit as Iqualuit, which means, “People with unwiped bums”. Nice one, Steve. News sources say the Inuit of Nunavut are both chuckling and angry.
Steve is going up north for a few days…..he’ll be trying to convince the Inuit to help Canada defend the Artic and win votes with his seal hunt views. Good luck, Mister Steve!
