Michael Ignatieff in Nanaimo

Michael Ignatieff kicked off his national tour in Nanaimo BC today only to be met by a group of seal hunt protesters. The seal hunt demonstrators surrounded the cafe where the event was being held and chanted Murderer leave town, Seal killer leave town, Michael Ignatieff go home, Leave the harp seals alone, and Blood on the ice in the water profiting off the seal slaughter. The protest was so loud that all doors to the cafe had to be closed and everyone inside was taking notice. Because Ignatieff was having trouble speaking inside with all the noise outside, he agreed to come speak to protesters after he was done if they stopped chanting.
