Here's his official statement:
*In late June the Montreal Symphony are hosting a TV Special to salute Buffy Sainte Marie's 50th year making music. I am honored to be asked to take part. I first bought a Buffy Sainte Marie record when I was 12, and her music has always remained with me. In the 1960s, as a political activist, Buffy's lyrics were fearless, and I'm very grateful for all the risks that she took. I am also pleased to be asked to join the bill at the V Festival at the Thunderbird Stadium in Vancouver, and also at Fort Calgary in Calgary. However, as we all know, the psychologically and constitutionally sickening Canadian seal kill has started and is once again in full cry. The horror of the Canadian seal kill is untranslatable, and although I fully realize that highly concentrated evil exists in other countries... there is something especially menacing about Canada's seal kill... The seal kill takes place to satisfy greed for fur pelts, and this Canadian government is happy to drag the global image of its own country down, and make it a place that people such as I couldn't bear to visit.* Visit Morrissey's official site here.MP3: Moz - That's How People...
