Pamela Anderson Responds To PETA Ad Ban In Montreal

Pamela Anderson arrived in Montreal last week to unveil her provocative new vegetarian campaign for PETA which shows the buxom blonde’s body labeled as though she were a piece of meat at a butchers market. From breast to ribs to rump, the ad proved to be too much for Canadian officials who denied a permit for the event at the last minute.

In an email to PETA, Commissioner Josee Rochefort wrote, “As you might expect, I have to inform you that we, as public officials representing a municipal government, cannot endorse this image of Ms Anderson. It is not so much controversial as it goes against all principles public organisations are fighting for in the everlasting battle of equality between men and women.”

Anderson responded, “In a city that is known for its exotic dancing and for being progressive and edgy, how sad that a woman would be banned from using her own body in a political protest over the suffering of cows and chickens. In some parts of the world, women are forced to cover their whole bodies with burqas–is that next? I didn’t think that Canada would be so puritanical.”

After being booted from Montreal’s Place Jacques-Cartier, arrangements were made for the feisty 43-year-old to unveil her campaign at the privately-owned Restaurant Globe as part of a news conference for the Just For Laughs comedy festival.
