Harp seals from Canada are showing up in U.S. waters in greater numbers and farther south than usual, and biologists want to know why. Seems obvious, doesn’t it? They don’t want to be bashed in the head anymore.
So the World Trade Organization says “no” to Canada’s seal products derived from extreme cruelty, but Canada’s Federal Fisheries Minister, Gail Shea, wants to force the region to accept their bloodstained products anyway.
I am not at all comfortable with that statement. I feel it gives us permission to not try as hard as we might. It gives our heart an “excuse” when things don’t work out. And for some, it gives reason to not even get involved in the first place because “we can’t save ‘em all.”
Here you will hear the conversation between one of the members of Let’s Adopt! (South Africa), calling from Johannesburg and Miss Mary Ellen Donovan, Legal Advisor to Mayor Peter Kelly of the city of Halifax. This will help you understand the problems Brindi and Francesca Rogier have been suffering during the last 19 months.
Kudos to Bally Total Fitness! I received an email from them today regarding my request that they refrain from supporting the Michael Vick reality show slated to appear on BET. They stated that they have “blocked all future advertising during this program.”
Please e-mail the sponsors of the Michael Vick Reality Show and express your opposition to their financial support of the program. As a result of their advertising, Vick is profiting from a lucrative reality television contract.
In my wildest dreams, I cannot imagine Michael Vick as an inspiration — unless I misunderstand the definition of “inspiration.” If you feel something similar, please add your name to the petition and pass it along to your friends.
