Pamela Anderson too Risqué for Montreal

This is a public relations path well beaten by many sometime celebrities and certainly and most famously includes Bridget Bardot and one cannot resist taking advantage of it.

There usually is some minor merit to the howls of complaint but rarely is it understood that good husbandry excludes cruelty as a matter of course because stressed animals cannot be expected to properly develop.

Excluding animal husbandry from our agricultural system is actually a very bad idea.  In fact, a major error of industrial farming has been to somewhat separate activities that should be mutually supporting.  We rely on animals to process waste grain and fodder that will never be acceptable for human consumption.  Our challenge is to do a better job.

Yet the vegetarian crowd seems to think that taking meat out of the human food chain will be of benefit to the animals.  That is hardly true.  They will then be extinct.

Somehow marketing the genocide of all cattle, pigs and chickens is not so exciting.

I think properly expanded and distributed animal husbandry has a great future in supporting our human ecology and soils.  My postings on boreal forest moose - cattail husbandry protocol proves just that.


Pamela Anderson too risqué for Montreal

Canadian actress Pamela Anderson, an outspoken animal-rights activist, in an advertisement for People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals.

MONTREAL—Pamela Anderson's risqué advertisement promoting vegetarianism is a tad too sexy — even for the famously sultry City of Montreal.
The former Baywatch star, an outspoken animal-rights activist, has been denied a permit to hold an event launching her newest animal-rights campaign.
In the advertisement, Anderson's bikini-clad body is covered in paint and mimics a butcher's diagram — with parts of her flesh marked up with words like "breast," "round," and "rump."
The caption reads: "All animals have the same parts. Have a heart — Go vegetarian."
Anderson, who is in town for the Just for Laughs Festival, had hoped to launch the campaign at a public square in front of City Hall.
The plans were nixed by city officials, according to an email forwarded by People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals — the group Anderson works with.
In the email, a city official calls the advertisement sexist and not something Montreal could endorse.
Anderson planned to launch the campaign Thursday at another event instead — one related to the comedy festival.
Anderson says in a statement that it's laughable that a city known for its exotic dancing and laissez-faire lifestyle would ban a woman from using her own body in a "political protest."
