|May 2, 2012 – a Date to remember.In a message received by a dear friend, some good news for a change.
Message from IFAW – International Fund for Animal Welfare
Senator Mac Harb’s bill to end the commercial seal hunt, which would help sealers out of the industry while protecting the rights of Inuit and First Nations people, was sent for second reading.
This means that the commercial seal hunt will be debated in the Canadian Senate for the first time in history. It is encouraging that politics in Canada may have finally evolved to a place where the facts on commercial sealing can be discussed.
At a time when vital services in Canada are being cut and all levels of government are talking about fiscal responsibility, it makes no sense to pour more money into propping up the dying seal hunt industry. It’s time for a rational and open debate about this wasteful and cruel industry.
The facts are clear: commercial sealing is inhumane and unnecessary, and it’s time for it to end.”
IFAW promises to continue the fight and end this barbaric industry.
Please support Mac Harb’s bill. Thank you.
