A Weekend Excursion

To celebrate the Royal Wedding and my upcoming birthday, I am headed off to Canada for the weekend to explore some wineries, Niagara Falls, and delicious vegan food.

I am excited to see what our neighbors to the North have to offer! You know, other than the torturous and completely unnecessary slaughter of seals

Really Canada? Really...? So unbelievably disturbing.

I wanted to post a video of seals being cute as my "unspoken" protest. There are a few on the interwebs, but most have language tacked on them that I can't read. Instead of posting them and finding out they say something offensive, I will instead share a completely unrelated video that someone sent me yesterday.

Why? Because when there are torturous and cruel people in this world, we all need a little humor in our lives.

Perhaps this place should be my next career move...

  1. I'm Canadian, a vegetarian, and an animal lover/rights activist. I just stumbled upon your blog today, & I was really enjoying it. And then I saw this post. I’m not sure if you were being sarcastic, or intentionally general, but I can tell you that it is far from the case that every Canadian supports the seal hunt. The general justifications (such as they are) for this practice (such as it is) comes down to the traditional values of Canada’s native peoples as well as the supposed economic value of the seal trade. Personally, neither of these serve to make the hunting appropriate.

    There are few issues more controversial in Canada and around the world, and this is something that most Canadians are quite ashamed of. I do hope that you found Canada to have more to offer than seal hunting, the royal family, and wineries. I know that I have found my trips to America to offer much more than bigotry, guns, and religious intolerance.
