Brigitte Bardot Protests in Ottawa


The trouble with being 38 is that I am left wishing I was photographing Brigitte Bardot 38 years earlier. Still, seeing her pack a room today I can hardly complain. She drew a media scrum at the Marriott Hotel and undoubtedly got more press if she had met with PM Harper. After the press conference I hiked it up to Parliament Hill to await her delivery of 25,000 signed petition to the government of Canada. After waiting a half-hour for her to arrive, she was a no-show at the Hill but Paul Watson, Persia White and team did arrive with the petitions in tow as expected. They were initially refused admittance to the Centre block but were directed to the Langevin block by security where the signed protest papers were eventually handed over.

Media Release: Brigitte Bardot, the legendary actress who became the first celebrity to use her influence to bring the plight of the harp seals to international media attention nearly three decades ago, is returning to Canada for the first time in 29 years to demand an end to the controversial commercial seal hunt, which resumed in 1995 after being shut down since 1984. Bardot will join her old friend, New Brunswick native and Sea Shepherd Conservation Society(SSCS) Founder and President Captain Paul Watson, and Girlfriends TV star and animal activist Persia White, at a press conference tomorrow.

Brigitte Bardot is a unique character, she's her own person and she's often misrepresented in the media for saying what she believes in. Sincerity is not often prized in this world. I admire her immensely.
