Dear Prime Minister Harper:
As you must by now be aware, Fisheries Minister Loyola Hearn has
disgraced Canada and cheapened the sacrifices of Canadian soldiers in the
two World Wars, in regards to his contemptible attempt to manipulate the
Belgian government about its plan to ban the importation Canadian seal
Mr. Hearn has stirred up the hornet's nest. As we speak, thousands of
letters from around the world are being written and sent to all the EU
nations, inciting them to follow Belgium's lead. Italy has long since
taken this step.
The least that the Canadian government can do at this point is to fire
this broadly revile man and restore Canada to a semblance of honor and
dignity. Please take this decisive step, or all Canadians, at home and
abroad, yourself included, will have to bear his shame.
