Morrissey Central "Don’t forget me." (May 7, 2023)


For six to eight weeks each spring, the ice floes of the Gulf of St. Lawrence and the eastern coast of Newfoundland and Labrador turn bloody, as some 300,000 harp seal pups, virtually all between 2 and 12 weeks old, are beaten to death–their skulls crushed with a heavy club called a hakapik–or shot.


Canada's absolutely adorable first family. Aren't they just beautiful?

What a Harp Seals least favorite libation? Canadian Club on the Rocks!
At the coronation, the king's equerry attracted some attention in his kilt and large white fur sporran. Seal skin is one of the traditional materials used in sporran making and such items, made with locally sourced materials, can still be purchased from Scottish artisanal firms today. Although imports of seal pelts are banned in the UK and hunting and shooting of seals was banned in Scotland from last year, it has been recently reported that the sporran makers are looking to Inuit traders from Canada and elsewhere to supply seal pelts, as this type of community is still allowed to export products that sustain their traditional lifestyle.
Given that the photo of the Trudeau family is from 2010 and the little kids (now teenagers) presumably had little choice in what they were wearing (which isn't even seal as has been said in this thread) I would have preferred Central to make a statement on how Canada's Prime Minister supports the seal killing these days, especially how his government subsidises the industry and promotes exports of the pelts.
It's photoshopped. Just saying.
