Pamela Anderson stuns in low-cut swimsuit on luxury yacht

Pamela Anderson is enjoying her Thanksgiving holiday week on a yacht.

The 52-year-old was spotted on a luxury boat in Gold Coast, Australia, where she was busy filming a commercial and posing for a photoshoot.

Anderson stunned in a low-cut white swimsuit which she paired with aviator sunglasses and a glass of wine.

While down under, the former “Baywatch” star penned a heartfelt note about the wildfires affecting the country and urged people to take climate change seriously.

“I arrived on the Gold Coast this week after spending almost a month following news about the devastating fires in Australia,” she wrote in an open letter that was published by the People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals.

“I realize that, for some, now is a sensitive time to broach the subject of climate change, but I trust you will agree that having these difficult yet important conversations now might save lives in the future.”

“As you’ve already noted, the science is clear: climate change has played a key role in the severity of this year’s bushfires. But acknowledging this is only half the battle. Australia has one of the highest greenhouse-gas emissions per capita of any nation, largely driven by one sector: animal agriculture.”

“Just as your government is surely working on emissions-saving energy and transport policies, you could lead by example by implementing a climate-friendly vegan food policy for government functions, along with transitioning the menu at Sometimes Strangers’ Restaurant at Parliament House to an all-vegan one.”

“The United Nations and leading scientists are calling for the reduction or elimination of animal-derived food consumption as a matter of urgency, and in the largest study of its kind, researchers at the University of Oxford concluded that cutting animal products from our diets is the ‘single biggest way’ to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and conserve water and land. Australia is burning.”

“It’s time to listen to scientists and take direct action,” she wrote.

Pamela Anderson asks Trudeau to serve inmates vegan meals to save cash

image host

Actress Pamela Anderson is asking Prime Minister Justin Trudeau to take meat and milk off prison menus to help the planet and the health of federal inmates — and save taxpayers some cash, to boot.

The former Baywatch star makes the pitch in a letter to Trudeau part of her work with the animal-rights group PETA, writing that she hopes Canada embraces what she calls a “simple but effective way to reduce costs and improve lives.”

She wants Canada’s federal penitentiaries to serve vegan meals of beans, rice, lentils, pasta, vegetables and fruits, which she bills as sources of all the nutrients one would need, “at a fraction of the cost of meats and cheeses,” since most vegan ingredients don’t need to be refrigerated.

In its most recent departmental plan, Correctional Service Canada says it provides nutrition “sufficient in quality and quantity” and in line with the Canada Food Guide.

Anderson says the newly retooled food guide put less of an emphasis on eating meat and dairy, instead suggesting more plant-based proteins in Canadians’ diets.

Her letter also points out a UN climate panel report calling for a dietary shift to help combat climate change — another interest for the actress who backed the Greens and their leader Elizabeth May in the just-concluded federal election.

Four years ago, Anderson travelled to Arizona to serve vegetarian meals to the approximately 8,000 inmates at the Maricopa County Jail alongside Joe Arpaio, the controversial local sheriff who made the decision. Arpaio estimated the move would save US$100,000 a year.

Anderson says the jail reduced costs by $273,000 when it switched to vegetarian meals, although reported savings vary widely.

She says the savings could be even higher for Canada’s almost 40,000 inmates — a number that includes inmates in provincial jails, which fall outside federal jurisdiction.

A report in May from Statistics Canada said that in the fiscal year 2017-18, there were on average 24,657 adult inmates in provincial or territorial jails, while the federal portion was 14,129.

This report by The Canadian Press was first published Oct. 31, 2019.

Pamela Anderson Urges Toronto Film Fest to End Canada Goose Sponsorship

Pamela Anderson has brought her fight against Canada Goose’s cozy jackets, popular with Hollywood stars and filmmakers, to the Toronto International Film Festival.

The actress wrote TIFF artistic director and co-head Cameron Bailey on behalf of People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals to urge that the fashion line’s sponsorship of the Canadian film fest end after this year’s edition owing to alleged animal rights abuses during the making of the puffy jackets.

Anderson pointedly asks Bailey to no longer take Canada Goose’s “blood money” as a festival sponsor. “As a proud Canadian who has been active with PETA since my days on Baywatch, I’m saddened to learn that TIFF continues to partner with Canada Goose, which sells real fur and down,” Anderson wrote in the letter obtained by The Hollywood Reporter.

The global retailer sponsors the annual $30,000 Canada Goose Award for best Canadian feature film, which is handed out during prize-giving on the final day of the fest, which is set to run Thursday through Sept. 15.

The festival in a statement took no direct view on how Canada Goose acquires its fur and down for its puffy jackets, while adding, “From TIFF’s perspective, CG is abiding by all applicable Canadian laws and continues to support Canadian and international filmmakers through a wide variety of sponsorships and investments.”

Canada Goose in a statement criticized PETA for continuing to misrepresent via Anderson and other celebrity representatives how the global retailer makes its puffy jackets: “We are disappointed that PETA continues to grossly misinform their celebrity spokespeople about our use and sourcing of fur and down and we would encourage them to do their research first and not misrepresent the facts. This scripted rhetoric continues to attempt to mislead consumers, while we remain committed to the responsible use and ethical sourcing of all materials in our products, as evidenced by our transparency standards.”

Anderson and PETA have partnered before to protest coyotes being trapped to give Canada Goose jackets a fur-trimmed hood. Anderson, a longtime animal rights activist, in July 2015 wrote an open letter to Russian President Vladimir Putin asking him to save endangered fin whales.

“I admire TIFF’s dedication to promoting gender equality in the film industry with the Share Her Journey initiative, and I hope you’ll take another progressive step to end injustice by refusing Canada Goose’s blood money,” she added in her letter to TIFF.

The Berlin International Film Festival ended its sponsorship contract with Canada Goose and its down-filled coats after its 2016 edition.

Pamela Anderson’s letter to Bailey is below.

Dear Mr. Bailey, As a proud Canadian who has been active with PETA since my days on Baywatch, I’m saddened to learn that TIFF continues to partner with Canada Goose, which sells real fur and down. I admire TIFF’s dedication to promoting gender equality in the film industry with the “Share Her Journey” initiative, and I hope you’ll take another progressive step to end injustice by refusing Canada Goose’s blood money.

Canada Goose’s “standards” allow for coyotes to suffer for days in steel traps with a broken or bleeding leg before the trapper returns to shoot or bludgeon them to death, and the company’s jackets are stuffed with the down feathers of birds who died violently. In the down industry, birds end up at the slaughterhouse, where they’re immobilized, their throats are slit, and their bodies are scalded in defeathering tanks.

Canada Goose recently removed some misleading claims of “ethical” sourcing from its website following a PETA complaint to the U.S. Federal Trade Commission and the agency’s subsequent investigation. So many innovative vegan materials can be used instead, and now, hundreds of fashion companies — including Chanel, Gucci, Michael Kors, The North Face, and Versace — keep fur out of their lines.

But instead of making the switch, Canada Goose is seemingly trying to hide exactly how coyotes and birds are killed for its products. TIFF has rightfully taken its place in world cinema and can afford to be selective in its sponsorships. I urge you to make this year the last one in which you have Canada Goose as a sponsor, just as the Berlin International Film Festival cut ties with the company in 2017. Thank you for your time and consideration.

Sincerely, Pamela Anderson
