What? This doesn’t even make sense…..

Please explain to me why anybody would have to convince Vermonters NOT to use Canadian maple syrup.  Seriously, this would have made more sense pretty much ANYWHERE else…..


MONTPELIER, Vt. (AP) — People for the Ethical Treatment of

Animals is taking its campaign against Canadian seal harvesting to

America, urging consumers to boycott Canadian-made maple syrup.

Three PETA activists — one dressed as a baby seal — campaigned

outside the Statehouse in Montpelier on Tuesday, smashing a

likeness of a maple syrup bottle until it squirted red “blood” —

it was really theatrical makeup — onto the sidewalk.

Passersby didn’t need much coaxing, though. Nineteen-year-old

Anna Macijeski (muh-JESS-key), of Northfield, said she never buys

Canadian maple syrup anyway.

Simon Trepanier, a spokesman for the Federation of Quebec Maple

Syrup Producers, says he doesn’t understand what seals have to do

with maple syrup. He says maple syrup makers are working with

nature, not against it.
