Anderson Banned From Unveiling Peta Poster In Montreal City Centre

PAMELA ANDERSON has been banned from unveiling a sexy new PETA ad campaign in Montreal, Canada's Place Jacques-Cartier.
City officials have refused the actress/model a permit to officially launch her new vegetarian campaign poster, which features the busty former Baywatch babe wearing a bikini and sporting the words of butchers' cuts of meat printed all over her flesh.
Anderson flew into Montreal to meet PETA heads on Wednesday night (14Jul10) and learned early on Thursday (15Jul10) that the launch would not take place as planned - because Montreal dignitaries felt the ad was sexist.
In an email to PETA bosses, City Commissioner Josee Rocheford writes, "I have to inform you that we, as public officials representing a municipal government, cannot endorse this image of Ms Anderson.
"It is not so much controversial as it goes against all principles public organisations are fighting for in the everlasting battle of equality between men and women. We therefore will not give you a permit to hold your event on Place Jacques-Cartier.
Shocked Anderson, who was born and brought up in Canada, tells WENN, "In a city that is known for its exotic dancing and for being progressive and edgy, how sad that a woman would be banned from using her own body in a political protest over the suffering of cows and chickens... I didn't think that Canada would be so puritanical."
PETA Senior Vice President Dan Mathews, adds, "I think that city officials are confusing 'sexy' with 'sexist'."
Anderson has now been forced to unveil her latest campaign ad at the privately-owned Restaurant Globe in the city.
