Anderson Urges Canadian Leader To Take Seal Concern Seriously
PAMELA ANDERSON has joined the celebrities attacking Canadian Prime Minister STEPHEN HARPER over the country's seal culling, insisting on a face-to-face meeting with the leader. The Canadian actress is spearheading a petition drive against her homeland's seal slaughter and has written to Harper, cautioning him not to turn a deaf ear to the international outcry that is building against the seal kill. In a letter faxed to Harper yesterday (28MAR06) the former BAYWATCH babe writes, "As a proud Canadian who frequently travels abroad, I am alarmed that people are starting to see us as a country more beholden to a pack of greedy hunters and the seal skin fashion whims of a few countries than attentive to the massive international outcry against such a barbaric activity. "One of the biggest problems facing the US government is appearing arrogant and oblivious to world opinion, and I'd hate to see that happen to Canada, too." Anderson, who will be in Canada this weekend (01-02APR06) to host the Juno Awards, also asks to meet personally with Harper, adding, "On Monday, I'd love to come to Ottawa to meet with you personally about these concerns." SIR PAUL MCCARTNEY and his wife HEATHER MILLS-MCCARTNEY recently visited the seal fields to highlight the plight of Canada's seal population and yesterday (27MAR06) singer MORRISSEY announced he'd boycott Canada from all upcoming world tours until the country ceased culling seals.
