Animal rights activists and Inuit clash over Canada’s Indigenous food traditions

A newly opened restaurant in Toronto sparked heated online debate recently by revealing that two dishes on its menu would contain seal meat. Kū-kŭm Kitchen, an Indigenous-owned and operated restaurant, was targeted by an online petition which gained more than 6,300 signatures. The petition called for the restaurant to remove seal from its menu, stating that seal hunting is “violent, horrific, traumatizing and unnecessary”.

One extra large bucket of popcorn with butter please.

    It’s not much different from fishing, crabbing, trapping lobster. trapping rabbits, fox, hunting elk, deer, or moose.
    This planet is based upon energy exchange in the form of another’s death. That includes eating plants and animals. Bon appétit.!

    • The PC indigenous and the PC greenies are going to battle it out.

      What is the real PC pecking order? Greens or indigenous?

        Any idiot can be “green” so the indigenous win this round. We need a face off between gays, blacks, and muslims to really divine their place in the victim pyramid of empowerment.

          Make Canada’s indigenous seal hunt/harvest, Halal/sharia compliant. The cruel sacrificial slaughter of animals , blessed by an Imam to the most benevolent & the most merciful { with the shake-down for an islamic FEES } & watch the progressives, SJWs & PETA avert their gaze, look the other way and cease their criticism so has not to blaspheme izzzlam…

        Most Greens have White Privilege.

    What about veggies – they’re alive when we process and eat them. Shouldn’t they have the same rights as seals?

      Of course that is why PERV was set up:

      People for the Ethical Regard of Vegetables

      How would you like to be separated from your nether regions, plunged into a boiling cauldron of oil or water and then eaten?

      How would you like to have your genitalia cut off and used to decorate churches, houses and the bosoms of human females?

      How would you like to have your unborn children put in a mill and ground up over the corpses of related species?

      How would you like to have your head cut off so that people can play football on you?

      And it’s a matter of your own health. Do you realise that leguminous vegetables such as peas and beans fix deadly nitrogen from the air, which could give you cancer?

      Act now! Send a large cheque to the Number Watch Cayman Island account to become a member of PERV.

      In return you will receive a free catalogue of synthesized proteins, carbohydrates, vitamins and fibre (no fat, of course) with price list.

      Leave the flowers where they are in the field. You know it makes scents.

    I just love it:
    Social justice snobs: Hey Inuit how dare you eat seal!
    Inuit hunter: Whoa? We’ve been eating seal for over 10 000 years. It’s part of our culture and heritage
    Social justice snob: Who cares! Your culture is backwards and perpetuates cisnormative patriarchy. You’re eating meat and seal meat to boot.
    Inuit hunter: ?!
    Social justice snob: we know better than you what’s good for you. You’ll cease and desist eating seal meat
    Inuit hunter turns gun on social justice snob

    I’m a native Canuck….I was BORN here.My ancestors took a boat,the others walked here.
    If I want to eat a seal and you don’t like it feel free to eat a cock.

    Don’t they need bait for fishing and hunting, bait is the only thing greens and animal rights activists are good for.

    But, but,,,,,, they use every part of the seal.
