Morrissey versus Canada. What do you think? Interesting isn't it? In somewhat quite a unique way to express his protest against Canada's "barbaric slaughter of over 325,000 baby seals", the singer-songwriter is refusing to play any shows in the nation in support of his upcoming album, "Ringleader of the Tormentors," due April 4 via Attack/Sanctuary.

"I fully realize that the absence of any Morrissey concerts in Canada is unlikely to bring the Canadian economy to its knees, but it is our small protest against this horrific slaughter -- which is the largest slaughter of marine animal species found anywhere on the planet," Morrissey said in a statement on the noted fan site True to You.

Also the star stated "The Canadian Prime Minister also states that the slaughter is necessary because it provides jobs for local communities, but this is an ignorant reason for allowing such barbaric and cruel slaughter of beings that are denied life simply because somebody somewhere might want to wear their skin".
