Canadian Parliament Eats Seal Lunch to Support Seal Hunting

From Google News:
OTTAWA -- Parliamentarians are to dine on seal meat on Wednesday to show solidarity with seal hunters wrestling with a European Union ban on seal products and the loss of a key market.

The parliamentary restaurant lunch in the roof space over the Commons Chamber will "revolve around seal meat," beginning with hors-d'oeuvre and followed by a three course meal, said an invitation to media.

"Double smoked bacon wrapped seal loin" will be served with a "medley of organic beets, carrots and turnips," a "port reduction" and "Yukon gold potato pave," said the menu.
