I for one really wish the media would stop giving so much attention to the money-sucking manipulators like Paul Watson, and pay more attention to issues of sustainable resource management.

    A great thing about this country is that animal rights activists are free to express their viewpoints, as unscientific as they may be. However Paul Watson goes far beyond expressing his opinion, to the point of endangering people’s lives.
