Pamela Anderson holds a press conference

Anderson held a press conference to promote her appearance as host on Sunday’s Canadian Juno awards. She also spoke out against Canada’s annual seal hunt when asked about a letter she sent Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper asking for a meeting about the hunt. Paul McCartne and Bridget Bardot are among the other celebrities protesting the cruel practice of bludgeoning baby seals to death for their pelts.

Many of the reporters’ questions centered around a letter Anderson sent Prime Minister Stephen Harper requesting a meeting to discuss the seal hunt.

Harper refused, making it the second time he has turned down the celebrity’s request.

“It’s too bad. I wish he would have met me. I think it was awful he didn’t meet with Paul McCartney and Brigitte Bardot,” Anderson said.

“I think it’s a very sad situation, and as prime minister, and to have the world stage for the first time, it’s really a big mistake to keep up the seal hunt even after the outcry from all over the world against it.”

Anderson has a petition with over 50,000 signatures against the hunt, and thinks it reflects poorly on her birth country.

Anderson will host the Junos, Canada’s version of the Grammys, tonight. Coldplay, Black Eyed Peas, and Nickelback are among the performers.
