Canada's Governor General, Michaëlle Jean, ate a portion of a seal's heart at an Inuit celebration in Rankin Inlet. Animal rights activists and members of the EU are disgusted and have condemned the G.G. for her action. Inuit leaders have praised her for her show of respect for their culture and I concur. Animal Rights activists and European leaders who are shocked and disappointed in Michaëlle Jean have shown how myopic and enthocentristic they are. Time to grow up and gain some perspective.
