Pamela Anderson Too Sexy to be in Canada

Pamela Anderson flew into Montreal yesterday all set to unviel her new ad campaign for animal rights group, PETA. But the ex-Baywatch beauty learnt at the last minute that the required permit had been refused by local officials, who branded the ad 'sexist'.

The ad, which was due to be revealed outside of Montréal's Place Jaques-Cartier will now be unveiled at Restaurant Globe Thursday morning as part of a news conference for the Just For Laughs Comedy Festival which Anderson is hosting.

Canadian born Anderson was shocked by the ban decision, saying: 'In a city that is known for it's exotic dancing and for being progressive and edgy, how sad that a woman would be banned from using her own body in a political protest.

'In some parts of the world women are forced to cover their whole bodies with burqas- is that next? I didn't think Canada would be so puritanical.'

And PETA's senior Vice President, Dan Matthews weighed in: 'I think that city officials are looking at this lovely ad and confusing "sexy" with "sexist". In the ad Anderson's nearly naked body, clad in just a teeny tiny bikini, is covered in paint markings that mimic a butcher's diagram.
