Urge Canada to End Its Shameful Seal Slaughter

  • By: Patrick Rochford
  • Target: Minister of Fisheries and Oceans Keith Ashfield, Minister of Foreign Affairs John Baird,and Minister of International Trade Ed Fast

I was shocked to learn that the Canadian government still allows thousands of seals to be slaughtered each year, especially given that the U.S., the European Union, Taiwan, Mexico, and now Russia--which had been importing 95 percent of Canadian seal pelts--have all banned seal-fur imports. Most of these seals are under 3 months old. It's time to end the seal slaughter once and for all. Please support a government buyout, which would help sealers transition out of this dead industry.
