PETA Pies Canadian Fisheries Minister



Fisheries and Oceans Minister Gail Shea was hit in the face with a pie at an event on Monday in Burlington, Ont., a news station is reporting.

Shea was delivering a speech at the Canada Centre for Inland Waters to open the Aquatic Life Research Facility when a woman stood up in the front row and plated the white cream pie squarely into Shea's face, according to Hamilton-based CHCH News.

The woman made some remarks about the seal hunt before being ushered away, reported CHCH, which captured the event on video. The woman is now in custody.

The pie aimed at Shea was apparently made of tofu, though the fisheries minister told the Hamilton Spectator that it "tasted like shaving cream."

After getting the cream wiped off her face, Shea finished her speech.
