Yes! You (will have) read it here first! (If you keep on reading)

During an interview with the BBC broadcast today on BBC World Service "radio" (re Seal culling), Stockwell Day, Canadian Minister of International Trade, accidentally revealed the TRUTH about sheep farming (at least in Canada).

"Sheep are killed for their wool."

(Honestly, that's what he said. I don't know whether the broadcast "The World Today" can be downloaded rather than streamed, but if it can and you don't believe me check for yourself.)

And there I was thinking wool was a renewable resource.

We don't want him ... somebody take him ... please ... I'll throw in a second loonie as a bonus ... okay, make it a toonie.

I feel I should point out that George is a Canadian and that I reasonably infer he is speaking of Stockwell Day and not Yours Truly... just in case you were wondering.
