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!

    lol

    Tricky language there.

    So Steve wants people who don’t wipe their bums to protect our Arctic? What a mission.

    The graphic says it all, LOL

    Thanks for the late night chuckle. Although I’d bet the seals would find Harper’s oiliness somewhat unpalatable.

    It takes a bum wipe to know a bum wipe.

    Q – it would seem that way. but then, an army of poo-bums may just keep the ruskies away from the sheer stench factor.

    sassy….i think it’s called ‘seal’s revenge’

    cjay, hi and welcome. i’m wondering if harper sharts a lot?

    Oh look another Liberal crying site. If you have taken the time to write a blog you could at least put something of substance in it.
    What a tissue for those big left wing tears?

    Oh look, another whining red neck conservative. If you have taken the time to write a comment, you could a least put something of substance in it besides shallow criticism, name calling and finger pointing.

    Can I suggest reading a book or two? Actually I’m really impressed that you can read at all or were you just going by the pictures?

  • 7. harpervalley  |  August 19, 2009 at 5:14 pm

    mike….hello and welcome. you’re new here but if you knew me and what my blog was really all about you’d hardly call me liberal….or n.d.p…….i’m way off in the fringes of good governance, you know, the stuff Steve isn’t giving us. I’m also FN and guess what, you’re living on FN land no matter where you are in north america……but i’ll let you stay, for now.

    cher…..heh heh :D, come back anytime!

  • 8. Stan  |  August 19, 2009 at 6:54 pm

    Why do the Europeans allow their own fishermen to kill tens of thousands of seals a year and simply burn their bodies?

    Kinda wasteful, isn’t it?

    And hypocritical.

    stan…..hi and welcome. ewww, i didn’t know that info….can you provide a link please?
