Canada’s Governor General and the eating of seal at an Innuit skinning ritual

There was alot of flippant commentary after Canada’s Governor (GG) General Michaëlle Jean participated in an Innuit skinning ritual, including the eating of seal (specifically the heart). I think it pays for people to at least read what she said. Some of what she said is here: GG defiant about eating seal – The Globe and Mail. They should also learn more about her and her background and how she approaches the role of GG. While people can still disagree with her or the hunt, they should at least try and understand what she was trying to do.
