Pamela Anderson, Simpsons co-creator offer Newfoundland workers $1M novelty cheque to quit seal hunt
Actress Pamela Anderson and a co-creator of The Simpsons received a frosty reception in St. John’s, N.L., on Tuesday as they tried to present a $1-million incentive to help end the East Coast seal hunt.
Members of the Fish, Food and Allied Workers union, representing sealers, shouted questions at Anderson and Sam Simon during a chaotic news conference outside the office of the Canadian Sealers Association.
