Royal Newfoundlanders Died For the Seal Hunt
Days numbered for seal hunt after EU declaration demanding ban: activists In an unusual move, Hearn said he told Belgian politicians that an import ban would amount to "taking the livelihood away from a number of Canadians whose family members left their blood on the fields here in Belgium, Flanders fields and other places" during the First World War.
Uh Huh? What???! The Royal Newfoundlanders led to slaughter in the killing fields of the Somme in France were fighting for seal pelts? Hardly. Hearn, like other Harpocrites, is an idiot. Our troops died for you so don't boycott us. Wow that's foreign policy genius at work. Others would call it blackmail.
