Canadian Olympic Athletes To Wear 'Seal Skin' Uniforms?

"The federal government wants Canadian Olympians to wear a seal product -- most likely skin -- during the 2010 Winter Games to help protest a European Union ban on Canada's seal hunt.

Members of Parliament from all parties voted unanimously Wednesday in favour of a Bloc Quebecois motion calling on the government to come up with a way to integrate seal pelts into the athletes' uniforms.

"With the upcoming Winter Olympics that will be in Vancouver in 2010, the government has a chance to offer some concrete action to promote seal products," Bloc Quebec MP Raynald Blais said.

"Today we are tabling a motion aimed at studying the possibility to integrate [seal products] into the Canadian athletes' uniforms. Is the government ready to act to save an industry?"

Canadian Olympic Committee president Mike Chambers said adding seal products to Olympians' gear would not only mar athletes' performance, but politicize the Games."
