Toronto food snobs will be disappointed to learn that seal meat can be found in Ottawa's Byward Market if you know where to look (in my case, in a restaurant on George St.)

It was okay. Probably not worth it if thoughts of Lazy Harp Seal are likely to haunt your conscience.

I really need to check this restaurant out

I do think they're adorable, but I'd still try a seal steak.  Or fillet.  Or however seal is served.  I would, however, be obliged, when asked if everything is to my satisfaction, to respond by extended my arms out, clapping my hands together, and saying, "ORP! ORP! ORP!"

Seal meat could be found in flipper pie and canned in Newfoundland for decades.  Seal meat is not new.

Crazy Ernie: If nobody comes down here and buys a car in the next hour, I'm gonna club this baby seal. That's right! I'm gonna club this seal to make a better deal. You know I'll do it, too, cause I'm crazy.
It's a good deal. Dinner and a car.

A seal goes into a bar and asks for a whiskey. The bartender asks if he has a preferred brand. the seal replies, anything but Canadian Club.

It's a bit weird that he's been serving game and other wild-sourced animals since he's opened and nobody said a word until it was the cute and fuzzy seals on the menu.

I've had seal the traditional Newfie way(is there such a thing? At least my families usual way).  Not gross at all, but I much prefer moose especially in a nice stew.  Mmmmm...mooooose.

Yes. Yes it is. A single vegan was bent outta shape someone would dare serve cute widdle baby seal meat so she started a petition. Then can't figure out why there has been so much blowback that she exclusively picked on an Indigenous resto serving traditional indigenous foods, sustainably harvested by local indigenous people. You know, without also protesting any of the other (non-indigenous) multitude of restaurants serving other cute faced meat in the city.
Best part, the resto is booked solid for months thanks to all the extra publicity.

In Montreal, there is a place that has a "Phoque Bardot" Burger, bent some French tourists out of shape a few years ago.

insertsnarkyusername: So why were people against this? Is it just the usual "Don't eat the cute animals!" nonsense?


You know, it's not hard.  All you have to do is not eat animals that are:

1.  Endangered
2.  Particularly intelligent
3.  Really cute.

That's it.  Eat the rest.  But some people just don't get it, and they need to be smacked silly for it.

Seals are in the really cute category, and some of them are also in the endangered category.  Stop eating them, I don't give a fark about your culture, farking change your culture then.

It's like eating whales, nobody gets a pass on that, I don't give a shiat if your great-great-great-great-great-great grandfather did it, you're not him, it's not then it's now, you stop.

The harp seals in question are not only not endangered, but their population growth (arguably) threatens fish stocks. There isn't really a good argument against eating seals that wouldn't apply equally to a lot of other animals.

I don't really care how well it "goes over".

In fact, I'm reasonably sure that anybody there who's thought about it at all has already stopped eating seals and whales, so the ones who haven't will likely be pissed.  I mean, look how pissed the southerners were when they got told they couldn't own people any more.

Different cultural practices are great - right up to the point where they aren't.  Cut off women's clits?  That's not ok.  Keep slaves?  Not ok.  Eat whales?  Not ok.  Doesn't matter who is doing it, it needs to be stopped.

Seals aren't in the same category as whales, but seriously, knock it the fark off.

LOL...endangered!   Hahahahahahahahahahaha!  Google Canada's seal population sometime.

Also, they're only really cute and white and fluffy for the first couple of weeks.  It's illegal to hunt them at that age in Canada.  Go ahead, look that up, I'll wait.

Also, they don't get "smacked silly".  The weapon used (a hakapik) is a very specific weapon, is regulated in Canada, and it's used because it is the quickest, most sure and safest way to kill the animal.  Trust me, if there was another way, they'd be doing that instead.
