The Canadian Military is showing its military "guns".. seized an antisealing ship off of Nova Scotia.. glad they did this so that all the fashionable folks of the world can wear their white seal coats.. I am not a PETA freak, just a reasonable freak. http://www.canada.com/topics/news/story.html?id=eb603de8-4464-4597-b93e-9cf9bd4d501f The captain and first officer of the anti-seal hunt vessel Farley Mowat are facing charges in a Sydney, N.S. court in connection with a confrontation with a coast guard ship on March 30. The Mowat, operated by the Sea Shepherd Conservation Society, was seized by an armed RCMP team, working with fisheries and coast guard personnel, in the Gulf of St. Lawrence Saturday as it was monitoring the hunt. The head of the Sea Shepherd Society, Paul Watson called it "an act of war," claiming the Dutch-registered vessel was outside Canadian jurisdiction. "The Canadian Coast Guard seized a European-registered yacht in international waters which, technically, is an act of war," said Watson. Canada's fisheries minister dismissed the claim, and in acid tones described the group as "money-sucking manipulators (whose) sole aim is to try to suck as much money out of the pockets of people who really don't know what's going on."
