Blog: Farley Mowat De-registered - Pirates Unite!  

Protest ILLEGAL Japanese Whaling

The government has stripped the Canadian flag from a ship named after one of the country's most popular authors and conservationists, Farley Mowat. The Sea Shepherd Conservation Society is using the vessel to stop Japanese fleets from illegally killing endangered whales in the Antartic Whale Sanctuary.

The Canadian-registered yacht, was first detained in South Africa last year. Canada registered no complaint and refused to help. Last August, Transport Canada revoked its registration, turning the Farley Mowat into a pirate vessel. It has since failed to retain and keep new registration from another country. The Japanese government is pressuring countries not to register it. If you don't have a flag to sail under, naval law allows the crew of any ship to detain your crew and confiscate and seize your property.

Under pressure from Japan, Canada is impeding the ability of those devoted to protecting the whales Canada and Japan have become complicit in the illegal killing of whales in Antartic waters. Canadians love whales. Shame on the Canadian Government! Shame on the British Government! And shame on the pressure tactics of Japan!
