If your coming by or through Kings Square at noon, don't be suprised if you see a large inflatable seal. People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals are staging a protest during the lunch hour to voice their displeasure with the annual seal hunt. Kate Brindle is a spokesperon for PETA and tells CHSJ News, they are not going to get in the way of the Olympic Relay.

Brindle says they have been in Halifax and Moncton and the reception from most people is understanding and compassion.
