The Cove = A Very Insightful Movie

If you are going to watch one movie this weekend please make it "The Cove". I went last night to Bob Timmons' first movie showing of the year at the University of Toronto's HartHouse and I have to say it was a great success and a very moving experience. Close to 60 people showed up to watch the documentary which turned out to be a fast paced espionage type of film which opened my eyes to the dolphin slaughter that happens each year from September to April in Taiji Japan. You might have heard a lot about this yearly killing a couple of years ago when celebs Hayden Panettiere and Isabel Lucas travelled to Japan and got into a confrontation with the Taiji fisherman while praying atop of their surfboards in the cove used to murder the dolphins! Unfortunately Hayden and Isabel were arrested and had to flee Japan before prosecution which means they now cannot return to the country.

Last nights showing raised a total of $282CAD which will be directly sent to which will continue to protest the slaughter of these highly intelligent and beautiful creatures. Please visit Bobs site for more information on how you can help and to view his beautiful ocean artwork. He truly is amazing!!
