On the morning of Sunday, April 13, Canadian police from two coast guard vessels entered international waters to seize the Sea Shepherd vessel “Farley Mowat”. The Farley Mowat crew and vessel were taken to the Nova Scotian port of Sidney were most of the crew were released.
Captain Alex Cornelissen informed the boarders that the Farley Mowat is a Dutch registered ship in international waters and that Canada had no legal right to restrict the free passage of the vessel through international waters.
The ship was in the Gulf of St. Lawrence well beyond the Canadian twelve mile territorial limit. It was there to document the barbaric slaughter of hundreds of thousands of baby seals who are clubbed in the head and skinned alive in front of their mothers.
The illegal attack on Sea Shepherd was ordered by Canadian Fisheries Minister and bufoon Loyala Hearn.
“The man has not even read Managing Fisheries for Dummies and in his zeal to kiss the bottoms of the seal-killing crowd he has thrown reason out the window … Loyola Hearn is certainly the latest Nufie joke and the joke is about to backfire in his face.”
A nufie is a person from New Foundland, Loyala’s home province. Nufies are well known for their inability to read and write, inability to speak clearly and inability to do much more than destroy nature. Their preferred past-time is killing whatever they can.
Newfoundland is the only Canadian province to offer Kindergarten classes for adults of any ages (no joking). Due to the remoteness of many Newfoundland villages significant numbers of nufies didn’t attend school up until recently and the province is plagued by illiteracy.
The unemployment rate in Newfoundland runs about 50% or more yet public works contracts require imported labor because seal, fish and moose killing don’t provide the skills required for building roads and schools.
To be fair, nufies are also known for their friendliness (as long as you are human and anti-nature) and their cleanliness. On some levels they aren’t such bad people, they just don’t understand the basic concept that other species have a right to exist.
It is the gross incompetence and nufie greed that resulted in the near extinction of cod and many other species of fish, which they conveniently blame on the seals. In their simplistic and ignorant thinking Loyala Hearn and his bloody hoards of baby seal killers think that if they can just get rid of the seals the cod will somehow magically reappear and they can all be millionaires from killing the cod again.
Not that the nufies are suffering now. They all life comfortably from massive handouts and subsidies from the Canadian government.
The European Union is currently considering banning the importation of dead seal parts in order to reduce their responsibility for the destruction of the seals.
Loyala’s latest act of stupidity and piracy on the high-seas will only encourage Europe to do the right thing.
