Gail Shea spokesperson responds to Morrissey's statement about Canadian seal hunt

A spokesperson for Gail Shea has responded to Morrissey's comments :

Morrissey attacks Fisheries Minister Gail Shea in blog post claiming ‘Canada’s sorry image is due entirely to its seal slaughter’ - National Post

Excerpt:

A spokesperson for Shea has responded to Morrissey’s statement, saying his comments “reveal a total ignorance of the Canadian seal hunt.”

Anyone who takes a careful look at the seal hunt will see that it is humane, sustainable, and well-regulated,” minister spokesperson Sophie Doucet said in an email to the Post. “In fact, the process used in the seal hunt was designed by international veterinary experts, and is the most stringent of any wild animal hunt in the world.

This is clearly just another case of a millionaire celebrity, desperate for a hobby, shamelessly regurgitating misinformation and myths that fringe animal-rights groups have been pushing for years. In the future, I would urge Mr. Morrissey to consider the impact that his ignorant and inflammatory statements have on the livelihoods of thousands of hard-working men and women in rural communities."

"...impact that his ignorant and inflammatory statements have on the livelihoods of thousands of hard-working men and women in rural communities."

So it will impact people looking at an innocent little seal and blowing its brains out?

Good! Get another f***ing job!

Mr. Morrissey!

I love when he gets media responses from people he wouldn't ever cross paths with in life.

Roll on some controversial songs and a cracking tour!

The answer couldn't be more pathetic. Morrissey said "Killing is killing, no matter HOW you kill something" and Gail Shea says " It is the most humane way of killing something"...

Ms. Shea is right! I cannot wait until Canada's National Obese Elderly Hunt! I plan on hunting Ms. Shea in the most humane and sustainable way! There looks like there is some good blubber on those pudgy bones! She'd make a fine stew, and when her head is being clubbed open, I know she'll be defending my right to deliver those blows!

How many unnecessary flights does Morrissey take in any given year to maximise his tax efficiency, hopping from Sweden to Switzerland to Italy to the UK/Ireland to the US? How many birds are shredded in the engines, poisoned by the chem-trails as he cavorts from continent to continent emoting and ululating on behalf of "the animals"? Never mind the nonsense of dragging a band of minstrels with him. How do his air-miles contribute to species/animal habitats being ruined by climate change? And you think anyone with a brain is going to listen to his nonsense?

" One round-trip flight from New York to Europe or to San Francisco creates a warming effect equivalent to 2 or 3 tons of carbon dioxide per person."

Presumably, Morrissey believes climate change is either irrelevant or a gubbermint conspiracy.

"Your Biggest Carbon Sin May Be Air Travel'

http://www.nytimes.com/2013/01/27/sunday-review/the-biggest-carbon-sin-air-travel.html?_r=0

"There is a rule for how big a bird an engine must be able to take in and spit out while continuing to produce thrust, and another for the maximum size it must be able to take in without breaking up and throwing off dangerous shrapnel. The hearings will look into whether engines can be built to withstand birds as big as the Canada goose"

As Morrissey states: "Killing is killing, no matter HOW you kill something". How many birds have died in planes transporting this 'international playboy' to sign books in Stockholm or some such nonsense? Are birds important, or only seals? Morrissey's extravagant travel lifestyle means he's just as much a part of the death-cult of industrial civilisation as some poverty-stricken Inuit hunting seals on the tundra. Every time he boards a plane for no reason, he's effectively part of a human pack hunting birds. The difference is he has other options immediately available unlike, perhaps, some genuine Inuit on the tundra who are in the interregnum between tribal and global civilisations, with attendant morbid symptoms. Etc.

If he's serious about any of this stuff, he can cut out pointless flights, campaign for habitat protection for all species and get down off his absurd pulpit. Perhaps he's never joined up the dots to connect his own behaviour to the state of the planet and comforts himself that "World Peace Is None Of Your Business" ignoring subliminal cognitive dissonance as he helps disrupt the peace of animals in his flight-path. Including humans. His 'animal rights' schtick is demonstrably absurd. When he becomes a Jain and broadcasts concerts to cinemas to avoid unecessary travel by him/his band/entourage and his delusional 'fans', then I'll take him seriously. Until then? Ha! Ha! Ha!Migrating birds are shredded by high-powered aircraft engines. Is this a death that Morrissey would wish for himself? Would it make him happy to be shredded by a high-powered jet engine? If he considers such butchery to be so "humane", why doesn't he place hmself amongst the tens of thousands of migratory birds that will be slaughtered within the next few years? He could then test the humane aspect of having his head shredded for himself. Only then could he be thought to speak with any authority on the subject. Internationally, Morrissey's sorry image is due entirely to his silly statements - which are *rollseyes* and *LOLs!*, and it is dismaying to witness such ignorance in 2014. Sound reason tells us that only those of the thinnest intellect make pointless flights, and because Morrissey's appears to be concerned with animals only emotionally, travelling by plane and thus killing migrating birds with lightning brutality is now part of this pop star's global image. Until this ongoing massacre is abolished, Morrissey himself is regrettably fashionably dead.

Rock 'stars-international playboys' and their silly 'fans' are part of the problem, not part of the solution. They should stop touring. Nobody 'needs' to see Morrissey or anyone else 'appear' on stage like a performing seal. He can just do one concert and broadcast it to cinemas. After all, his tour film was a massive success at the Cineplex. This isn't a rant just at Morrissey, it's at all of them. But very few of them are so egregiously sanctimonious and holier-than-thou about their 'right' to lecture others about lifestyle choices which facilitate animal murder, whilst ignoring their own contribution to "death for no reason, death for no reason, murder". And so on and so forth!

Yum! I'm getting HUNGRY just looking at Ms. Shea's grizzled & bloated body. Granted, due to her age, one would of course have to thoroughly skin Gail. The skin of an old woman is tough, not tender enough to chew, no matter how long you smoke it in like a brisket. However, her blubberous interior is likely well-marbled. Cooked just right, I imagine her flesh would just FALL RIGHT OFF THE BONE! Tasty!! The stews one could make from Gail... and oh God, those fat-drippings could make some delicious gravy! Let the purge of old fat women in government begin! Get out the clubs, and the veterinarian's guide to humanely ending the lives of fat aged cowish women, and then let's have a barbecue! I'm getting hungry just looking at her picture!
 

Oh my god. it's Robby!

is Gail Shea an idiot? yes, but Morrissey seems to be too

:p
also, I just realized something, even when no one buys seal fur and that day will come :thumb:
won't they have to still "cull" the seals since we have basically annihilated or severely reduced the numbers of their natural predators :eek:
culls go on all the time in order to keep populations of different animals from overpopulating their dwindling environments :o
and these are mainly done by people whose livelihoods revolve around actually caring for and protecting animals* :straightface:
once again, with his lack of understanding** of a deeply complicated issue :confused:
Morrissey is only playing right into the hands of rabid animal hunters, when will he realize he does far more harm than good now? :tears:


*=these people do not include a faded pop star that once wrote a song which actually inspired others to do some good for animals
**=I am beginning think of the word "moron" intermediately after I think of Morrissey, granted I don't believe he is that dumb, but pretty dumb it seems, perhaps what I took for past brilliance on his part was just him "channeling the muse" in some way, that what made him seem so great really exists independent of this clearly uneducated, thoughtless and unable to change 54 year old man.


ps: Still, if I like some of the new album, all forget what a moron he is, for at least a little while. :lbf:

I don't see it as complicated at all. The more we intervene the more we f*** everything up. Just let nature be, who decided that we have to control everything?

Well, I am no animal protection specialist, but people who are usually are the ones that decide these things. See, before that many animals went extinct not just because they were hunted to extinction but because we humans have taken over where they lived, and that is not going to change so the choices are isimple:
1. continue to have diverse number of life forms on the planet both domesticated and "wild", this can only be done by keeping said populations from going through the periodic famines that invariably reduce their numbers each time, eventually leading to extinction, once again I am relying on history, current experts opinion and these things called facts :straightface:
2. do nothing, leading, eventually(see #1 for why), to a planet with just us, domesticated animals and a tiny group of niche species whose environments we don't encroach on, YET
3. give a bunch of the planet back to "wild animals" I wouldn't hold my breath on that one happening :cool:

-so yeah, the choice is pretty simple to me, since I actually prefer existing in a world of NOT of just me, cows and spiders :rolleyes:
but one where the diverse forms of life currently on the planet have an actual chance to survive on for generations, call me selfish I guess :cool:

Unless you are a Norwegian teenager in which case it "is nothing compared to what happens in McDonald's and Kentucky Fried shit every day."

oh, thanks for reminding of that, at the time it made me wonder if Morrissey does not so much like animals, but really at heart, he hates people :straightface:
and furthermore, he really only likes animals because he can "project" all these nice, happy, whatever floats his boat :rolleyes: things onto them
when the truth is, if they could actually talk to him like we humans do to each other, he might not like them all that much either :eek:

Those are all neo-predations yes, "personal choices" he hasn't cared to realise deeply impact other animals.

He's not even vegan either, the very most basic position as regards animal rights. It is very easy to see him as a hypocrite on these matters. He is very outspoken on something he hasn't given a lot of thought to.

The problem is over population by humans compounded by our lifestyles. We are the problem not animals. Anyhow, we'll soon wipe ourselves out so I guess we won't have to worry about these things forever but in the meantime if we want to paper over the cracks by killing a few seals then by all means crack on.
