CBC reports that, following an incident in which a PETA member hit federal fisheries minister Gail Shea in the face with a pie in retaliation for her stance on seal hunting, Newfoundland MP Gerry Byrne has suggested that the federal government investigate whether PETA is supporting terrorist acts.
Gerry Byrne allegedly told Newfoundland radio station VOCM the following:
“When someone actually coaches or conducts criminal behaviour to impose a political agenda on each and every other citizen of Canada, that does seem to me to meet the test of a terrorist organization… I am calling on the government of Canada to actually investigate whether or not this organization, PETA, is acting as a terrorist organization… under Canadian law.”
